ICE brilliant new Victor Her
bert musical spectacle. "Tho
Enchantress," with beautiful
Kitty Gonlon In the stellar
role, Is coming to the Bran-
dels theatre tonight, and until
Wednesday night with a matinee Wed
nesday, direct from Its successful run in
Rarely baa Victor Herber shown him
self in a more pleasant vein than In
this delightful opera, which had so long
and prosperous a run last fall and winter
at the Now York theater. Indeed, many
critics declare that It equals. If not sur
passes, his other famous successes, "The
Berenade,"' ''Habca in Toyland" and "Mile.
Modiste." So widely appreciate' Is the
core that It was produced In Vienna
last spring by Adolph Burt, the famous
Austrian Impresario. It has the dis
tinction of being tho second American
comic opera to go abroad, tho first hav
ing been Mr. Herbert's "Tho Wiiard of
tho Nile' In 1607.
Nor has Miss Gordon ever appeared
more oharmlng than In this brilliant,
colorful spectacle. Tho eminent French
sculptor. Uodjn, haf called her the most
beautiful woman on tho stage, and In the
rolo of the entrancing opera- singer,
Vivien, sho has a part literally written
for her. For "Tho Enchantress" In a
genuine light opera woven around a
lovo story of the gay crown prince of.
a mythical kingdom, a story brimming1
With humor and amusing situations, and
Its entire absonco of the Innocuous horse
play so common in light musical plays.
The book Is the combined work of Mme.
Fred de Gresac and II. B. Smith. Mme.
da Gresao Is well known as the author
of "La Paseralo," which Is one of Mme.
Rejane's most popular Impersonations,
and her light Gallic wit is evidenced
through the piece.
A more appealing scene Is seldom pre
sented in light opera than that of the
palacu ' of the crown, prince, with its
exqulslto vista of the Jllue Danube, and
Balkan mountains towering In the dis
tance under the starlit sky. Nor have
v,or been mord than several recent
productions no 'Impressively costumed
Most gloriously gowned of all Is Kitty
Gordon. In the tecond act she appears In
wonderful gown of spun gold. Yet tho
greatest charm of this operetta, lies In
the music, which is said to be as spark
ling as champagne, one moment, and
swelling into triumphant finales, worthy
of grand opera the next Lovers of
mtjsio say that Mr. Herbert has re
vealed new beauties In light musical
composition. Certainly his melodies and
Waltxes glow arid linger through their
freshness and vitality.
In presenting "The Envhantress," Mr
Qaltes has taken unusual pains In select
ing a singing chorus, and the famous
sextette of princesses has been praised a
revelation of what thoughtful selection
and excellent direction will do. In' the
company of 100 there are a nunber of

The news of "The Blue Bird's" en
gagomen this week at the Brand els for
Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings
and Saturday matinee has brought joy to
both the children and the adult playgoers
of this city and vicinity, for rarely has
an attraction been booked that so appeals
to tho young-at-heart of all ages. It 1
because the poor children of the wood
cutter's cottago havo no one to bring
them gifts and because happiness U
llknwlse denied to a neighbor's sick
child, that they go forth to seek the
bluo bird, which slgnifleH happiness. The
quest of the blue bird turns out to be a
wonderful excursion. Tho boy. Tyltyl, and
the girl, Mytyl. aro chaperoned by tho
Fairy Beryluno, guided by Light, followsd
by their an,lmal companions, tho Dog
and the Cat. whllo Milk, Bread, Water.
Fire, Sugar and other objects assume
bodily presence) and life to accompany
thorn on their travels. Of the marvelous
things they fee and en"counter there is
hardly an end. They visit tho Talace of
the Fairy nnd the Palace of Night, dwell
among the forgotten souls of the Kingdom
of the Past, and peep Into the Kingdom
of th Future, there to see the souls as
yet unborn. A graveyard blossoms inn
lilies as they look at It; a flock of Hours
troop out of Grandfather's Clock; all the
little Happinesses appear and dance with
joy. It Is a long, long Journey filled with
the fascinating sceneB nnd crowded with
Incidents. Bvt after all, It lo only the
interval betwixt nentimo ano awakening
"Tho Blue Bird." sought nnd almost cap
tures In distant cllmea, Is finally found
right within their own door.
Such Is the barest outline of Maurice
MaeteHlnk's fairy fantasy. which.
translated Into many different languages
and played in every civilized country, has
brought to children and adults every,
where a new meaning of the word happl
ness. in the presentation here is .prom
ised the same gorgeous series of specta
cles that entertained New Yorkers at tho
New theater. Practically the same com
pany that played In New York a year or
bo ago Is coming here to Interpret the
play. The principal child roles are In the
hands of Master Burford Hampden and
little Miss Kdltha Kelly. Among the
others In the cast are Harry Lambart and
Cecil Yapp as the faithful Dog and the
treacherous Cat, Winifred Harris as
Light, Alice Butler as the Fairy, Gwen
dolyn Valentino as Water, John Suther
laud. George Sylvester, Allda Cortelyou
Ethel Brandon, Charles Hampden, Angelo
Romeo, Dore Davidson and Margaret
Mlllette. And juvenile actors the play
just swarms with them. Graceful little
girls Interweave tho dances of the Hours
and the Happinesses and the Mist Maid
ens. All Is wonderful mystery and charm,
It cost JltO.COO to produce "The Blue
Bird," it Is said, but aside from the mere
expenditure of great sums Is the more
important consideration of the loving,
artistic care that was devoted to making
the poet Maeterlinck's dream "a thing
of beauty and a Joy forever." There 1
