Mr. Max Marotzek , nu improssarlo who has
played an Important part In the operatic
America , arrived In the city yostorLa
to coaduct the opera festival of this
iveek nnd is registered at the Mercer. Mr
Mnrotzok claims the honor of brlncing out
Adcllna Pattt when she was a child of 8
ears. Ho has guided the fortunes ot many
other famous singers In his time nnd fora
bird of n century was one of the loading
operatic managers of the world. Ho abinby
doncd that precarious calling some yorxrs
to found a school ot music in t\ow York
and now , ho explains , ho is making moro
han ho did from opera ivila many thousand
lollors lavesto.l. In discussing the coming
osttval Mr. Marotzek said :
" 1 can but bollovo that the people of
Omaha will got moro for tholr money than
they oxpoct. Wo have secured n company of
excellent artists aud are prepared tu give
productions of undoubted raarit from nn nr'v |
ilitlo standpoint. Wo were fortunate enough
to be able lo eucago principals and chorus
who had been singing In open nil summer ,
so that the Omiiho performances will bo
ncitboi experiments nor rehearsals ,
Thu monitors of our company sang
for three months In the Hcinrlcb Ononi
company , which pluvod nn all summer en-
gaco'monl in Philadelphia , nud it is worthy
noting that tlio.v gave excellent satisfaction
In lhat metropolitan city , a center of musical
binnu ol Ilio hold Tnlnnt.
"To show Iho quality of our soloists It is
nnly necessary to point to their work In the
nast. The tenor roles will bo Interpreted by
Mr. Payne Clarke , n tenor robuslo who was
a member of Carl Hosa's company in Lon
doPi . Ho Is very popular In New York una
Pi nnd was Iho original Turrido in
th American production of 'Cavallora
Uusllcaun , ' Itself un honor lo be coveted. Ho
is undoubtedly as good a tenor as any sing
ing in Ungllsn opcr * in America , and thnt
surely should satisfy Onmhn.
' .Mndame Sclma Kuert ICronold , a soprano
oi fine dramatic powers , will sing the roles
olt Lonoro In 'Trovutore' and Marguerite In
Faust. ' She created tbo part of iunluzza in
Ibo American production of Masoagnl's
successful opern , nnd she is a great favorite
luh Now York , whose musical nooplo certainly
have : a discriminating titste. Miss Tounant
Clnr.v of tin * city will make her debut ns
Lucia , ana that , I fool sure , will bo an event
oldi much interest to the citizens of this won
derful city. /
diM "Tho contralto roles , , will fall to Mrs.
Morse Lee , on artist wl\o won reputation
Inhi the National Opera company and ono who
has many friends in tbt ) most , critical centers
ol the oast. The basso will bo Sig
| ner Bologna , who has sunportod Paul
and Campnnlnl ano ) t , been a member
olIt many of the best opera companies , both in
Italy and this country. 'Tho ' baritone will bo
Itr . Corasto , n Russian' uVtist who was a
reigning ( favorite in St. Petersburg , and who
has also sun ? in ttio Italian Grand Opera
company. Mr. Joseph Witt , formerly with
tlsi Etnma.luch Opern conipany , will bo the
stauu manager. 1 bnvo no disposition to
ruaku : boastful promises' , Uut from these few
points it w ill bo seen turn , the company is
made un of artists of repute , singers who
have won their spurs ip circles where the
standards arc oxuctmp. ,
"Of course Omaha people uro too senslnlo
to ( expect a chorus of eighty or 101) persons
brotiBht from Now iYorn for aalufilo week.
but I can spy that the raj will bo a fair sized
chorus of good nud well trained voices. A
line sol of costumes was seourod in Now
York , and that fonture will not bo slightod.
Oprrns on tlio I'rogriim.
"The program ts to present 'Trovatoro' on
Monday" and Tuesday ovontugs , 'Faust'
Wednesday nnd Thursday and 'Lucia dl
Lammormoor' Friday. At iho Saturday mal-
Ineo It is proposed lo give an act from each
of Iho three operas. The work for Satur
day night has not been soleoted , taut it is
thought it would be well to wait till these
operas have been given nud then repeat that
one which has pleated the public tlio" best.
"I cannot refrain from complimenting tbo
encrcry and tbo courauo of Miss Clary in this
undertaking , and she most ujsurudly de
serves tbe hearty supoort ot tlio people of
Omaha. In en ; ing Ibis I nm not
actuated by selfish motives. My
tlmu is fully employed by my school in
New YorK and its branch at Now Haven.
1 bad no tiioucht of coming lo Omaha , but
Miss Clary would not luuo no lor an an
swer , an 1 receive merily onougu to reim
burse mo for tbe loss 1 sustain In leavinc my
work nt home. I linn that she has maJo her
arrangements like a veteran in iho business ,
and she has done n wonderful work In pro-
parine Iho way for Ibis festival. Many of
the great cities of tbo country contribute
tbousanas for sporting contests which bene
fit no one , and it is to the lasting credit of
Omaba that it has so gcnerouily supported
an enterprise which has a civilizing in-
llucncc. and which will greatly stimulate the
thousands in her own midst who arc pursu
ing a uoblo art. "
Kiicoiiracflmpnt from Mrn. T.utllii.Wlldc.
Airs. Frank Loslle has written Miss Clary I
the following very kind and complimentary ' I
letter undur date of Now York , .November 1
"I urn in rccsiptof your invltullou lo be
present al the opera festival to bo pivon in
Omaha during Ihls month , und greatly re
gret tb t my business ontfngomimU will pre

"I am teartllv in sympathy with vour
great movement toestablMi loglltmalo o'penv
in Iho wcsl , lo make It popular and'to thus
cultivate tbe public taste.
"America has given to Ihe world some of ,
Us crealest singers , nnd It is lime that a

the great west. Tbo fact lhal that eminent
maestro , Mnx Maretzok , Is tbt-orjanizsr and

ciates , a good thine when ho gets it'ihan iho

vance on the success of vour iihdortnking. "
The sale of rnservod seats has been very
largo and Miss Ulury Uapw assured mat her
venture , in which she lius so assiduously in-
bored for the last five mtmths , will bo o'l-uo

LONDON , Nov. ii--The collapse of Sic.
Lngo's opern season nt the now Olympla
ihealor has been received with general regret -
grot , as Sip. La ire deserved well ot Iho
people. j Ho it was who cut down the prices
of admission and made it possible to produce
operas adequately rendered nad staged at
moderate prices. In ailiiltlun to lowering
the prices of admission , Sig. Lai-o intro
i duced to London many Ural-class slncers , In
J cluding the Knvologlo sisters , and produced
' "Cavallorln Hustlcana" in Londou. After
doing all this his only rownrd tins been to
sno his singers tomutcd nwnv from him by
higher salaries , and his repertory Initialed
by his uoworftil rival , Sir Augustus Harris ,
mnnnpcr of the Covent Garden una other
theaters. Since the opening of the season
there baa bocn n bitter rivalry between Sig.
Lugo nnd Sir Augtistm Harris , which
resulted In neither bouse being filled regu
larly 1 ; , and neither giving quito n tlrst-class
performance. The Globe urgn ? thnt Kir
Augustus content himself with Ills un
doubted mononoly of the real opera seasons
and leave the supply ot the uhcapor autumn
season lo Sig , [ yiijo.
A Wrok ol Wajfiior.
Sir Augustus Harris presented Wiignor'a
"Tristan uud Isoldo" through thu week. The
work had bceu In rehearsal for some time , but
the company was rather a week oue , nnd the
opera failed to attract the crowded houses
thnt nro scon durlug the rocular season. The
only enicient parts were these of Disphnm ,
nn Amoricin singer who appeared ns Kur-
wonal , nnd Abratnoff , n Hussian woo sang ns
ICInc Markc. Both made decided successes ,
Bisphnm is improving on the rood iuipicsslon
ho formerly mndo hero.
The great theatricals at present are nt the
Prlnco ot Wales and the Court theaters. At
the former "In Town , " bv Adrian Koss and
Gcorgo Leader , with Arthur Huberts and
Miss Florence St. John , is doing a good busi
ness , while the Court theater Is doing equally
ns well with "Tbo Guardsman. " In f.iet
both houses nvo full every night , and the ad
vance booking of seats is largo.
' The Private Secrclarv" bin boon with
drawn from the siagu of the Comedy theater
to i make room for a revival ot Sidney
Grundy's I "Arabian Nighls. " Tno lallor will
soon i bo followed bv Broqktlcld's ' "Divorc-
1 ion i , " with the scene transferred to the
Savoy hotel In Londou. Mr. Charles Haw-
troy nnd MISS Louie Vcnno will have Iho
chief purls in this adaptation.
It is said tnnt in tbo course of Iho season
Mr. Tree Intends lo produce Ibaon's ' drama ,
"An Enemy of the People , " und will npooar
himself in the character of Dr. StocKinnn.
It is in this play , which has been translated
by Mr. Archer , that the famous dictum , sup
posed to represent Ibsen's own view of Isbon ,
is put into the mouth of Stockman , "The
strongest man on earth is ho who stands
most alone. "
IVInter Comic Opor.i.
Miss Marie Halton , nn American actress ,
who some litllo time ago nppenred nt iho
Lyric in Ibo lillo role of "La Clt-alo , " has ,
in conjunction with Mr. Harry Monkhouso ,

renewing another two months. They will
produce a now comio opera by Mr. H. Ktnm
wilh muslo Oy Mr. Jnkobowsky. Under iho
psouaouym of "Mr. Emm" the name of the
author Is but thinly veiled. It Is Mr. Monk-
house hunsolf vtho furnishes the libretto of
thu work ! It was the Intention of Mr. Monk
house to play tbo chief part in this work , but
as ho is under engagement to Mr. Horace
Edmund it is not known whether ho can dose
so or not.
Mr. Lawrence Irvine , son of Mr. Henry
Irving , Is collaborating with Mr. Seymour

Mr. Clement Scotl , iho well known critic ,
will not commence bis lour until after the

Irving at too Lyceum theater. The dale
llxed for the production is November 5.
Mr. Scott attended the first night of Noely's
piny proouced by Mr. Irving , and he does
not intend to miss thu coming opportunity of
n era in seeing the great actor In n new part.
Mr. Scott inlends to visit Jisypt , India ,
China , Japan and America. His tour will
occupy n.year ana ho intends to bo present
in Chicago during the Columbian exposition.
Ho will write loiters descriptive ot thu
places ho visits aud tbo Bit-ills ho sees , and
itis expected that hit descriptions of the
World's fair will pretty Hourly cover everything -
thing to be seen there.
Mr. Padoruwslii has recovered from his
recent attack of illness but bo is still too
weak to play in public. It is bellovud that
bo will give no more publlu performances
until ho goes to America.
