THE WESTERN WEEKLY K3 ?
MUSIC AND THEATRES
(Continued from Page 8.)
Saturday, September 5th and continuing until the 10th, the Salt
Lake Opera Company will present at the Salt Lake Theatre the new
comic opera called "The Girl and the Governor," which was written
, by Julian Edwards, the composer of several other successes of the
local company, notably "The Wedding Day" and "The Jolly Muske
teers." The opera will call into action nearly all the local singers who
helped to make "Robin Hood" so successful a year ago, and those
who have heard the rehearsals say that the work of the company
will equal their former efforts. Professor John J. McClcllan, the
music director, has orchestrated a number of interpolated songs and
has arranged to weave the sextette from "Lucia" in the musical part
of the production. This alone will be a treat to music lovers, since
the sextette has never been sung here in opera since the days of
Gerster. It formed one of the greatest concert numbers however on
the program of the Tabernacle choir on its first trip to California.
Professor McClellan is ably assisted by Edw. P. Kimball, and the
stage management is all done by John D. Spencer, who also plays
'Jf the part of "The Governor."
The cast includes Misses Hazel Taylor, Agatha Berkhoel, Edna
. Evans, Messrs. John D. Spencer, Fred C. Graham, Geo. D. Pyper,
Horace S. Ensign, Hugh W. Dougall, Alex S. Campbell, Geo. W.
Pyper and John D. Owen.
With the season at the Grand on in full swing the patrons of
that popular theatre are finding that the new order of plays selected
for presentation during the year are even of better class than has been
claimed for them.
"The Belle of Richmond" for the week that closes today has
drawn some record houses. The attraction for the coming week will
be "The Dairy Farm," one of the greatest rural comedy dramas ever
written. Mr. Jossey and Miss Keating will have the leading roles in
the production and with the supporting company well cast the play
will receive a magnificent presentation. The piece calls for a wealth
of special scenery and every act will be replete with new settings.
V" Fredericka Raymond Trio at the Orpheum next week in "The Knights)! Old."
Opening Sunday night the Orpheum will inaugurate another week
of superior vaudeville attractions.
Miss Helen Bertram, a noted prima donna who has scored signal
triumphs in both light and grand opera, will appear. She has created
a number of original parts in some of the most popular operas of the
day. One of the best known parts with which she has been identi
fied was as the widow in the "Prince of Pilsen," with the original
Henry W. Savage company. Miss Bertram should prove a real treat
as she has a varied repertoire of songs ranging from the operatic
classics to the popular melodies of the day.
Next comes Fred Singer who offers an ambitious musical nov
elty act which comes directly from a sensationally successful tour
from abroad. This is a delightful novelty in which pathos and melody
arc harmoniously blended. It is staged in the seventeenth century, in
the workshop of the famous violin maker, "Amati in Cremona," and
deals in a fascinating manner with the world's renowned violinists,
also with the history of the famous Cremona violin.
A decidedly entertaining act will be presented by Walter Mon
tague and company, including Geo. Clancy. The title of their sketch
is "The Under Dog," which is a dramatic playlet wherein they show
tcalistic scenes in the stock market throughout which runs a strong
The Frederick Raymond trio are billed to present a high class
operatic act, "The Knights of Old." This trio is composed of three
exceptionally gifted singers who have had an ovation wherever they
have appeared. Frcdericha Raymond is the prima donna soprano,
Paul Fisher sings tenor, while Eurico Oromote sings baritone. Not
only is the singing of this trio said to be of the highest order of ex- 3
cellencc but their costumes and acting arc said to be well worth while.
An act already well and popularly known to Orpheum patrons is
the Lavinc-Cimaron trio. This year they have an offering conceived
by Frank Gardner in which the grotesque comedy and clever dancing j
for which the trio is noted is surrounded by a well defined travesty
on physical culture. Messrs. Lavine and Cimaron arc exceptionally
agile and clever comedians and acrobats while May Lavine is an ex
ceedingly clever dancer.
A new laughing sketch called "Engaging a Cook," is the vehicle
in which Lewis and Green will appear. This sketch is full of bright .
dialogue, humorous situations and many surprises. During the twen- u
ty minutes that this pair have the stage the action and frolic never
One of the numbers by the Orpheum orchestra will be a selection
entitled "The Three Twins," which is the latest New York hit. This
selection will be of particular interest to Salt Lakers because it .was
written by Otto Haucrbach, a native son of this city.
The bill will be completed by three unusually good Kinodrome
Plays and Players.
"The Traitor," a novel, by Thomas Dixon, Jr., has been drama
tized by Channing Pollock and will be produced for the first time at j
Norfolk, Va., by George H. Brennan.
Frank McKcc has engaged Harry Tighc, well known in vaudc- .
