No operatic or other organization that has ever visited American com pares in interest, in exotic flavor and romance, with the Russian Grand Opera Company, which will be heard here next week at the Tulane Theatre. This great organiation is com posed of singers selected by the late Czar Nicholas for his Imperial Opera in Petrograd, and were the finest in the broad Russian Empire. For the past four years, since making their way out of Russia, they have been touring the principal cities of the Orient, such as Singapore. Shang hal, Hong Kong, Harbin, Mantill. Tokyo. Yakama, and even the prin ,, cipal cities of India, including Cal cutta and Bombay. One year was spent on. the island of Java, such was the popular demand. Russia is a nation of singers: the chorus of the Russian Grand Opera Company will be a revelation to American au diences. The principals are all former members of such famous opera houses as The Imperial Theatre of Petrograd, the Imperial Opera in Moscow, Odessa, Kieff. etc. The Orchestra, having played together for five years. is the essence of unity and ensemble such as is sel dom heard even in great symphony bodies. Two distinguished conduc tors are with the company, one a graduate of the famed Moscow Con servator, of which Techaikowsky was connected, and the other a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, and each has had a great operatic training in Russia. A complete Ballet Russe is part of the Russian Opera Company. Prac TULANE THEATRE: NEXT WEEK, BEGINNING SUNDAY, MARCH 5 Matinees Wednesday and Saturday at 2 p. m.
