P'tXUIAPH no jne In tho entiro history of the American staico lias done more to uplift 'mu sical comedy tq,a higher ar tistic standard" than hai Androas Blppel, the one-time director of the Metropolitan Opera Company In New xorK nnd the Grand Opera Company n Chicago. Born of Atistilan parentage there is In htm that sonse of art and music which Is often bo nadly lacking In our American playwrights, drama tists, oomposers and producers. It in not an Idlo flream that tho Aus-tilans-and nbovo them all the Vien nese, nn born musicians. Time and again It has been proven by thu tre mendous musical hits which found their way all around tho world from Vienna. the musio, loving capital of .Austria. And Andreaa Dippel Is a true child of gay Vienna. Starting at a grand opera singer, later director of the two most 'impor tant opera companies of the new world, Mr. Dippel Is now "producer" of light operas. Only three years ago Herr Dippel was In charge of tho Chicago Grand Opera Company. Then he de cided to go Into the grand opera field on his own account. But the owners and backers of the company knew only too well how dangerous a competitor he would be, -and handed him a rather big purso in order to keep him "hors de concours" for at least a few years. Dippel signed the contract which barred him from his beloved grand opera, and, smiling, pocketed the purse. Then he went abroad, and enjoyed tho first rest since he set bis foot on American soil. But only a few months later he was back again, as full of ambition and plans us ever. And Immediately he started anew. With an immenso capi tal he founded the Dippel Opera Comlque Company, In order to produce ngni operas and operettas. His first production was the "Mlae Domino." and everybody, who haa had the pleasure of seeing thntf splendid operetta knows nviij a T, 1 ! Includes W. L. Abingdon. Ramsey Wal lace.
