A Description of the Now Opera
San Antonio has cause lo congratulate
Itself. At last tho city will have the
benefits or a commodious and elegant
opera house. This desideratum will be
secured through the enterprise or the
1 iirncr society, who have decided to re
construct the Interior of Turner hall and
to lit It up In an elegant and convenient
manner In order that It should hold a
large audicnro who will be able to see a
dratua or opera adequately represented.
and there will not bo the necessity or
having the apologctla scenery and stage
arrangements that San Antonio has so
long been accustomed to. From the
plans aircaur inniio nun mourning
uhlch operations will shortly be com
menced, radical and decided Improve
ments will be made, and when com
pleted. It Is estimated there will be am
ple seating rapacity for an audience or
lis). A gallery will bo built horseshoe
shape around the hall, entrance to w lilch
will ihi gained iy two spacious stair
cases running from the vestibule which
will bo considerably enlarged. A portico
will no limn extending over tue side
walk, tho top of which will he open to
the occupants of the dress clrole, and al
so ti. Hired when necessary as a stand
for tho musicians. Tho ground floor
will undergo complete change; It will
bo built on a gradual slope; the front
portion of the auditorium, or parquet,
nearest lha statro will be clccantlr up
holstered and seated to accommodate
about 301) persons, tlio druss clrclo
having a capacity for 3(H), whll
ble without any discomfort. Thu ar
ranircments lor seating will ho admir
able, the irallerv havlnc commodious
chairs. Passing from the auditorium to
the stage, great changes are contem
plated ncrc, tue ursi anu most necessary
change being that It will be much en
larged and tha depth, which at present
Is deplorably shallow, will ho extended
so that. In n classla play, one super with
a sword will not lm compelled to repre
sent a crowd and Vlrglnlus can revel in
his mad rrenzy without Having nis atten
tion divided between his acting and the
fear of plunging headlong through tho
scenery. The publloorSan Antonio are
witnoui tiouut a piay going nnu niiiusc
incnt seeking one, and San Antonio Is
rnnlileri-il hv the theatrical nrofesslon
to lie the best ' show" town In Texas,
but It has been hitherto kept out of a
host of goods things owing to the fact
that it nan no tnespian teinpie lor legi

careful Inspection or the plans, It can he
safely augured that when all the
alterations are completed San
Antonio will re olee In having the cosl
est theatre in the State. There will be
no moro reports of Turner hall having n
reingcraiing innucnce on actors anu au
