Developoment of Opera.
Opera is new. To he sure this
pleasing effect of combining poetrj
with music was tried as long ago as
tOSSJ by Pureed. But Puree!) s i
found out that be was ahead of his
time and quit, in the first half of
the eighteenth century, however,
peoppi wearied of just plain drama
and tragedy, so when Biekerstafl
ami Beggars nod Debdin, between
17-s and 1780, produced Snusical
dramas, tin- populace rallied. It
was something new and It pleased
them. Since then the opera has en
joyed a steady growth It gave a
new impulse to vocalisation j it
prompted emotional singing: it
started the tremulo, and gjve a new
field for expression ill music never
before thought ot. Sunny ami emo
tional Italy has set the pace in op
era, and so distant is her lead thai
the rest of the otvlllsed world is
now wondering whether or not an
opera rendered in any tongue but
the Italian can be as effecllvi aud
musical. Among the greatest up-
eractic stars of to-day an- Caruso,
Campanani, NordiCB, Calve. Melha,
