an opportunity to show the elasticity of
her art by enacting the widely differing Wagner or drink in the brilliant and easy-
flowing melodies of the Prench and Italian
schools of opera, is the almost unprece
dented event in the musical history of
Omaha until tl.ln year. Such a season has
been promised and looked forward to by
opera lovers in this and surrounding cities
ever since the announcement, nearly a yeir
ego, hy Henry W. Savage, the well known
Boston manager, that he would send his
great Fngliah-slngliig organization on a
compb te transcontinental tour. With It
complete equipment of artists and chorus,
numbering over 15o In all. with Its full grand
opera orchestra of forty-five men, and elab
c.rate productions; that require a chartered
train of fourteen cars for its transort.
tlon, Mr. Savage's company will reach
Omaha, Thuraduy, April at), presenting dur
ing Its brief vHIt of three days four of the
world's great masterpieces. The lepertory
for the engagement Is one of unusual In
terest. On Thursday evening it opens with
what ha undoubtedly proved to be the
most popular opera in the world. Wagner's
"Lohengrin." As presented by the Bsvage
company Thursday evening it will be given
In Its entirety, and for those who do not
take their music seriously there will bo
tho charm of the "Wedding Murch" and
the overture, while those who are more de
voted to the master can revel In the ma
Jueatic harmonies, the orchestra, prelude to
the third act, Lohengrin's poetic "Swan
Song." Elea's "Dream Song," and the stir
ring ensembles and part songs.
On Friday evening Bizet's florid and pas
sionate tone picture of, gipsy life In Seville,
"Carmen." will be the bill and will Intro
duce to opera lovers or Omuha Minis Marlon
lvell in the title role. ' Next year Mls
Ivell sings this role in the lending European
centers.
Saturday nia;lnee will be devoted tu one
of Wagner's earlier and most popular of
music dramas. "Tannhuuner." No opera
that Wagner ever wrote Is so prolific In
individual melodies as "Tnnnhauser." nor
Is there any of his music which surpassed
it In charm.
On Saturday evening, when the festlvul
closes, there will be an opportunity for the
lovers of the old school of opera to revel In
the striking tunes and songs of one of
Verdl'a greatest accomplishments, "11 Trov
Htore. " Here will be splendid opportunity
for the Suvuge forces to show their perfect
ensemble training and for tho artists lo
give free range to their powers. The opera
will bo given In Its entirely, including the
well remembered "Anvil Chorus, l'he
Mlfirerle," und the stirring duet In the last
act.
The unexcelled performance given by the
Savng Kngllsh "Parsifal" company in
Omaha recently, und which made such u
profound Impression, Is a guarantee for
roles of the dignified and gracious queen
and the untutored girl, whose dignity conies
solely from her modesty and the persistent
notion that "blood will tell." llennlone
Is the daughter of one king and the wife
of another, and it is easy to clothe her
with the attributes that should surround
her in her exalted station, as well as to
secure for her the natural indignation that
follows on a womanly woman's being foully
accused by the man who should protect
her. Shakespeare realized If he did not
voice the sentiment so deftly phrased by
Maurice Barrymore. "IOvery blow struck
In defense of a woman's name puts a dent
In her reputation." Here every attempt lo
defend the queen against the iiccusatlon
of the king only makes him the more de
termined In his course. Heriulone, dragged
from her bed of pain to face a trial that
she realizes will be a farce, nerves herself
to a most eloquent defense, not for herself,
but for her children. Here the conditions
are most thoroughly realized by Miss
Allen's conception of the situation, and a
more impressive scene is rarely afforded
than that of Hermione in the dock, with
the Ieontes in the Judgment sent. It
hardly requires the athletic feat accom
plished by the star. In hrr most realistic,
tumble, to convince the close watcher of
her sincerity. In voice, in manner, in atti
tude and every form fof expression, the
art of the actress makes her position most
convincing. It was done with consummate
skill and exceedingly good taste, showing
that Miss Allen Is temperamentally equip
ped as well as mentally fitted for the un
dertaking. It Is rather us Perdlta, though, that she
shows to advantage. Miss Allen's natural
bent. If bent she has, seems to be for com
edy rather than tragedy, and while she is
impressive as the injured queen, she la
more natural as the daughter. Jn the ex
uberance of her girlhood, frank, free as the
nature with which she lias been reared,
untutored In school or court, she Is the
delightful emliodlmont of the Innocent
charm that makes the girl of her uge ihe
sweetest of living creatures. She enters
Into the conception of the role with a
spirit apparently untrammeled by con
ventionalities,, and gives us just what the
jiart requires, a natural girl, it wus this
personal attribute that enabled her to so
mtlsf singly portray Viola, and would make
her a success in "Cymbellne." Comedy of
the higher class Is aun-ly her forte, and
In It She will undoubtedly find her befet
opportunity for the full use of her ac
complishments. The selection of u play for her use this
year was not happily made. Shakespeare
had already passed the zenith of his won-
the exc-ellence and high standard of merit
of the Knglish grand opera company, the
same superb en-emble effects being at
tained. flenri French, the Kuropeati novelty
alilt. will make bis tirst appearance here
with the new and vatie.l bill that opens
the week Willi a inntinee today at the
Orepheinn. His entertainment is of the
versatile kind and said to be no less clever.
Rapid changes. Impersonations, facial ex
pressions, "cycle stunts." throughout which
he runs humor, are among his specialties.
Ielmore and Lee, styled the modern ath
letes, also come for the first time, with
the promise of something quite original in
the aerial line, especially their equilibrists
act on a balancing ladder. Clinrb s Hurry
and Ilulcla Halvers, formerly of the "Babes
In Toyland'' company, contribute song,
dunce- and comedy, (iteen und W ernes pre

Jungle," :i musical sketch with elaborate
scenic investiture, In which the players
treat the audience to singing, dancing and
comedy In the manner of the Hottentot,
the principal number being "The Congo
Love Song." In addition to . her musical
accomplishments. Miss Mabelle Adams,
violin virtuoso, is described as very beauti
ful, possessing altogether a personality
with a charm that enhances the Attrac
tiveness of her performance. Oallando, the'
famous clay modeler, after an absence of
five years, return- with his amuztngly
rapid work of the studio, while to round
out the program the klnodrome will pro

latest motion jdctures.
Sunday and Monday evenlnps at the Boyd
theater. Harry c'orsoii Clarke, the well
known comedian, will be seen In his latest
great success. "His Absent Boy." by Sid
ney Rosenfeld. This is one of thos- roar
ing farces in which Mr. Clarke has made
nuch a name for himself from const to
coast. The piece Is one of the Rosenfeld
sort, and that means much, for the gifted
Sidney Is always blight and always clean.
The company with Mr. Clark Is one of his
own selection indeed, the clever star Is
managing his own tour In every particular

gagement at the Boyd is necessarily lim
ited to the two performances, but these
should be the occasion of large gatherings.
For three nights and one matinee, start
lug with a matinee today, the great rail
road play, "The Midnight Kxpress," will
be the attraction at the Krug theater. In
every scene of this great play there Is a
thrill, a sob, a laugh. Comedy alternates
with pathos, and the play as a whole pos
sesses that great human interest which Is
necessary to make a play, be It melo
drama, drama or tragedy, successful. The
story Is al once logical and interesting and
the attention of the audience is held from
the minute the curtain goes up until the
final fall. The management lias spared no
expense In the production and the scenic
effects, as well as the company and cos
tumes, will be found to be all that can be
desired. Among
