TWO GOOD OPERAS END OMAHA SEASON Miura as Iris and Teyte as Mimi Ravish Local Ears With Sweet Music. CASTS UNUSUALLY GOOD By HENRIETTA M. REES. An operatic fable, or rather fantasy, of Japanese characters woven into in teresting Italian music and treated in Italian manner, was what Mascagni's "Iris" proved to be, when presented in Omaha for the first time yesterday afternoon, in the rarely artistic man ner of the Boston National Grand Opera company at its second per formance at the Boyd theater. The soft tints of its lighting, its beautiful and appropriate scenic properties and the gorgeous Japanese costumes, es pecially those worn by the wonderful little star, Tamaki Miura, all com bined to heighten -and enhance the illusion of the music of both orches tra and voices. In this opera Mas cagni has used more delicacy and more subtle means of interpreting in the music and but few of the strong colors found in his "Cavalleria Rusti cana" were perceptible, although the music was dramatic and vivid when need be. Symbolic Rather Than Real. The plot, as we have come to ex pect from grand opera, is sordid and unmoral, but such is the character of the story, and the music that one feels it is symbolic, rather than real, more of a play than a delineation of life. This may be partly the result of the difference in philosophy of the orien tal from our own. The music suffers from contrast with the wealth of tonal beauty of the two Puccini operas also presented by this company, but it .is of high musical standard. The opening daybreak and sunrise brought forth some marvelous lighting and about the most beautiful music of the whole opera, and these same themes furnished a later devel opment and return in the third act. The "Hymn to the Sun," a broad and sonorous chorus off stage at the open ing was highly effective and the whole episode from darkness of night rises to a majestic and impressive cli max, at the coming of the full day. Music Suggests Japan. The music for the "Puppet Show" of the first act, by which Kyoto en snares the unsuspecting Iris, brought many .suggestions of Japanese native music and was well and carefully worked out, and most effectively pre sented. Act II brought other sugges tions of Japanese music, music that was admirably adapted to the scene, and several dramatic moments, as well as some of lighter vein when Kyoto was present. The company maintained the high standards in this opera which have been the outstanding features of all their productions. Suffice it to say that "Iris" was produced with true magnificence, both musically and scenically, and Conductor Moranzini and all concerned deserve great ap probation for their artistic and intel ligent results. The audience was not large, but it was a genuinely and dis criminatcly enthusiastic one. Miura's Voice Improves. Madame Miura as Iris repeated the triumph she made last year as Madame Butterfly, although unfor tunately the score does not afford her the breadth of opportunity of the other opera. Her voice is lovely and sweet, and has a certain childish note in it at times which is most suitable for the part. She sings even more beautifully than last year, and made the most of what fell to her with her own individual charm. She is an irresistible, actress, and histrionically infused the greatest interest into the character. Tovia Kittay as Osaka dis played a well trained tenor of some what metallic quality, but in no way displeasing, and he furnished rich and blase young man who was at all times satisfactory. The Kyoto of Georgio Puliti, and the blind father of Virgilio Lazzari added other ex cellent singers and widely different characters to the opera, and Elvira Leveroni and Romeo Boscacci made the most of minor parts. The chorus of "mousme," or work ing women, in Act 1, of the peddlers at the close of the same act, and the opening and closing hymns to the Sun proved again the thorough train ing and ensemble of this company, and the orchestra sang through the entire Opera as only an artistic body of trained musicians can. "La Boheme" Closes Engagement. "La Boheme," last evening, closed the engagement of the company in Omaha, and it is a gratification, in face of the small audiences present, to realize how much those who did not avail themselves of the opportunity of hearing the operas presented missed. This well loved opera by Puccini grows all the more lovely in Corns Loosen Off With Magic "Gets-It" 2 Drops Do th Work.

Storea. its repetitions, and either we have forgotten how wonderfully the com pany presented it last year, or in the more intimate spaces of the Boyd theater, it made a more personal im pression, tne tact remains mat me presentation of last evening surpassed any other we have ever heard of this masterpiece. There was a sprightli ness and freedom about the work of the four friends together, a life and freedom about the ensemble scenes, and opportunities which offered the chorus a chance to far surpass their very excellent work in the other two operas. The music of this opera is so in spiredly beautiful, so full of melodies that charm and harmonies that thrill, of colors that delight, and of life and brilliancy, as well as the underlying note of tragedy, that it never fails to reach the listeners Under the baton of Fulgenzio Guerrieri this music shone to its fullest luster last eve ning, the orchestra deserving even additional mention for its masterful laving: of it. Miss Maggie Teyte made a Mimi who not only looked but acted the part, and who fairly ravished by the beauty of her voice, she was Ire quentl interrupted with applause, in the first act, after her solo and the duet with Rndolph, in Act III, when she goes away and in the affecting death scene at the close, where her exquisite quality of voice shone to its fullest advantage. Miss Riegelmann as Musetta. The Musetta of Mabel Riegelmann was of the vivacious and lively type one expects this young lady to be, and she is well equipped with vocal and dramtic riches which made her wholly delightful in the part. While we were sorry that owing to an in- aisposuion luccarao jnarun uia not sing the part of Rudolpho, we were glad to hear Romeo Boscacci in the part, who if we are not mistaken was the Rudolpho of last year. His is a tenor of the loveliest velvety quality, and the beautiful solo in Act I won him prolonged applause in appre ciation. Rudolpho in his hands was a satisfaction from all standpoints. Graham Marr excelled his Marcel of last year, and much of the humor ot tne opera was due to his intelli gence and ability. Jose Mardones, who made such a tremendous im pression last year, was again Colline, at all times a vocal delight and bass of exceptional qualities, whose song to the coat in Act IV was a vocal and dramatic triumph. Georgio Puliti as Schaunard and Paolo Ananian, in two minor roles, were worthy of be ing in such excellent company. The death scene as given by the Boston National Grand Opera last evening is an achievement of art and tragedy, a most magnificent achieve ment of consummate musical and theatrical attainment, and was heart rending in its pathos and tragedy. It is hoped that we may many more times have the pleasure of hearing this company, and that at future visits they will receive the patronage and support that the artistic tatue of their work deserves. The prices were not high when one considers the im mense equipment, and large and renowned casts they bring. No Egg Rolling on White House Grounds This Year Washington, March 29.
