JEVER before, even in Grand Opera, has mat-
A ter ia glowing and highly colored action b?en
so masterfully, effectively brought out by means of
musical accompaniment as in "The Birth of a Na
tion." Every single passage, whether it be a terrific
br.UUe scene, a cunning bit of statecraft or maneu
ver, a snatch of tender pathos, a homely folk of char
acter sketch cr a ripping humorous view, is musical
ly explained to the amazed spectator and listener.
It's bewildering found and light and color effects
are simply wonderful.
This Grand Symphony
is carried by thz company and every member
of the organization is a capable sololist.
