David Bispham to Sing Under
City Auspices at Auditorium
The career of David Bispham, who will
appear at the Auditorium on Monday
night November , as Beethoven In the
one-act play, "Adelaide," in conjunction
with which Mr. Bispham and his com
pany will offer a miscellaneous concert
called "The Rehearsal" show what in
defatigable work and faith In self can
accomplish. Several well known masters
sought to dlssuads the singer from en
tering a professional career, but never
theless he went doggedly ahead, working,
practicing, until th4 sought-for end waa
accomplished. Today no American singer
has scored greater artistic success.
For ten successive seasons Mr. Bispham
waa a member of th Royal Opera com
pany, singing each summer at Covent
Garden, London, while for ecveral year
he wa a member of the Metropolitan
Opera company. New Tork. HI reper
toire Includes nearly fifty operetta roles
in English, French, Oerman and Italian.
He waa the first to sing the role of Fal
staff In England, where he appeared with
Verdi's original caste from La Scale,
And Mr. Bispham is an actor no less
thnn a singer. As Beethoven in Hugo
Muller's powerful little play he I said
to offer a characterisation that Is both a
mental and a physical visualisation of
the great composer.
Supporting Mr. Bispham. whose tour Is
under the management of R. B. John
ston, are Mme. Marie Narella, met so;
Mlas Kathleen Coman, piano; Miss Idelle
Patterson, soprano; Mr. Henri Barron,
tenor, and Mr. Graham Harris, violin.
Mr. Blspham'a concert will be the sec
ond at the Auditorium under municipal
auspices and at popular prices.
