'. Heat pel to Greatest Soprano.
In the ranks of famoua alngen
of the Metropolitan opera house. In
New York,, acknowledged to be the
leading temple of music of the
world, the list of famous sopranos
is beaded by Frieda Hempel. Miss
Hem pel has been the particular
blight star among the women for
seven years. Since the memorable
day when many thousands of dol
, lara released her from a long Eu
ropean contract and allowed the
Metropolitan company to use her
name exclusively, the wonderful
young artist has been a favorite in
New York, rivaling Mr. Caruso in
her appeal to the big public and
recalling Sembrick, Melba and
Pattl by her matchless voice and
Hempel's is no strictly colora
ture voice; she accomplishes the
most astounding things in florid
arm like those in "The Magic
Flute" and "Lucia" to mention but
two of her brilliant operas but a
delighted New York discovered
that in the heavier operas. Miss
Hempel was magnificent. It was
something almost unheard of for
a brilliant, flexible soprano to cope
with the big dramatic roles, and
the majesty of her impersonations
made her fame doubly great.
'Travlata" and "Faust" only
served to show Hempel's remark
able versatility, and during the few
years she has 'been in this country,
new ' wonders have been revealed
at-' every appearance. Apparently
no style Is beyond ber absolute
control ; she excels in every role
she sings.
A wedding which come as a sur
