HOUSTON TO BE ENTERTAINED,
Noted Singers and Dancers Will Be
Seen and Heard in Houston at
an Early Date.
Houston, Tex., Feb. 17.-The Boston,
Grand Opera Company and Pavlowa
Imperial Ballet Russe has been en
gaged for three performances In Hous
ton February 28 and 29. This is with
out doubt the most ambitious attrac
tion ever undertaken by any Texas
city and the attraction is one the like
of which has seldom if ever before
ventured into any part of the South.
The grand opera company has a score
of stars drawn from the musical cen
ters of the world. They are backed up
with a chorus of sixty voices and ac
companied by an orchestra of 48
trained musicians under the direction
of four conductors. Madame Pa-lowa,
who is always just Pavlowa, has seven
assisting dancing artists and a real
Russian ballet numbering 48.
As the result of a keen contest in
which the musical people of Houston
and the territory for more than a hun
dred miles surrounding the city par
ticipated, a repertoire of three operas
are to be sung. They are as follows:
On Monday evening, February 28,
"Madame Buttorfly," featuring Tamaki
Mliura,, Ricardo Martin and six other
singing stars, with ballet "Snow
flakes," by Pavlowa and her ballet;
Tuesday afternoon, "La Boheme," fea
turing Maggie Teyte, gaudenzi, and
five other stars and ballet "Orfeo," by
Pavlowa and ballet, and on Tuesday
evenring, "I Pagilaccl," featuring Fe
lice Lyne, Zenatello and five other
stars, with "Coppelia," by Paviowa
Already the mail orders for seats
have commenced to come in a manner
that indicates a record for grand opera
in Houston. Railroad rates were
granted at a meeting of the passenger
agents of the State last week covering
a territory within a radius of seventy
five miles, but so great was the de
mand upon them by the people of the
surrounding towns that the territory
had to be revised and the roads are
now advertising rates from all points
within a radius of 125 miles.
Some idea of the magnitude of the
production may be gained from the
fact that it requires two special trains
to transport the companies and their
equipment. An idea of the class of
artists who are to appear may be had
from the fact that Ricardo Martin is
to receive $2,000 a night for singing in
concert after the present opera tour.
Aside from the artistic, it costs in
round figures $5,000 a day to main
tain the organization while on tour,
including traveling expenses and sala
ries of artists.
The company has been breaking
grand opera records in practically
every city they have visited. The
Houston Press Club is sponsor for the
Houston engagement, which Is one of
the only two booked in Texas.
