NEW YORK. Oct. 18. The advent
of Mascngnt nt the Metropolitan op
era house Is the leading event to
chronicle for the present week. Three
new operas will be produced by him;
they ar of hta own composition;
"Zanetto," "Iris," and "Ratclif." The
company Is brought from Italy and
embraces some of the finest talent
from there. "Zanetto" was produced
on Wednesday night with preat suc
cess. It is founded on Francois Cop
pee's drama "Le Passant" and has
been set by Mascagnl as a one-act
opera with but two characters, Selvia,
soprano, and Zanetto, mexio-soprnno.
The opening of the Princess theatre
under the management of the Shuberts
took place on Monday night, October
6th, with Weedon Qrossmlth and an
English company in a play written by
this clever entertainer called "The
Night of the Party." The play is very
clever and put on in excellent taste,
evidently pleasing the first nlghters.
The theatre has been built so that It
offers harmonious tone and atmos
phere for the light comedies they pro
pose to present there.
At the Belasco theatre, formerly the
Republic, Mrs. Carter in "Du Barry,"
Is keeping the house packed with the
most select audiences. Mr. Belasco has
outdone Mr. Hammersteln in the pro
duction of a modern playhouse replete
with tone and choice surroundings.
Klaw and Erlanger, who purchased
and took possession of the New York
theatre on the 15th Inst., have pre
sented a great amusement, an educa
tional attraction, at this house, the like
of which has never been seen before
in this country. It is Carl Hagenbeck's
trained animals direct from his great
"animal educational school in Hamburg,
Germany. Herr Hagenbeck exhibited"
several groups of educated beasts in
this country during the world's fair,
but they could not possibly compare
with those to be seen at the New Tork
bow, either in numbers, variety of
animals presented or novelty of feat
ures. At the Knickerbocker theatre the
"Rogers Brothers in Harvard" is prov
ing one of the great successes of the
At Wallack's Henrietta Crosman ap
peared in a new play, "The Sword of
the King;" very successfully. It Is by
Ronald McDonald, a new English
dramatist, whose work seems to be
particularly liked. The scene is laid
In England in 1653. Miss Crosman's
part is that of a girl of wealth and
station who disguises herself as a boy
to assist in the cause of William ot
Orange. The leading male role Is acted
by Aubrey Boucicault. who was Miss
Crosman's principal associate in
"Mistress NelL." Also In the excellent
company which Maurice Campbell has
presented are: Barron Hill. Addison
Pitt and Ida Vernon, of the earlier
days, and of tha newer generation of
actors, Sheridan Block. P. C Bertrand.
Gertrude Bennett and others.
At the Broadway "Sally in our
Alley," which has proved itself an
abundant success has been succeeded
by "The Silver Slipper." In which Sam
Bernard. Mrs. Hopper, Leysle Scott
and other players, gathered together
jby John C Fisher, act and sing.
fe- At the Savoy theatre the regular
season has been opened under the
Frohman management by Miss Ethel
Barrymore who came before the New
Tork nubile first with "Captain Jinks"
wondering whether she would be al-'
lowed to name .herself as a star and
stay awhile at the Garrick until they
should tire of her and tell her to "run
off and play on the road." The answer
was a very pleasant one from the
Frohmans who said that she might
come before them and give them a
taste of her quality.
She was more than pleased with her
reception, and it has been shown al
ready that she has not worn out her
welcome. Her success and thai of he

In London. The Law comedy had a
long run at the Prince of Wales
theatre where It was originally pro
duced at the Criterion to which It was
removed nnd again at the Prince of
Wales, to which house It was again
returned, it is still running. "Cnr.ots"
was a success ot the theatre Anto'ne In
Paris, where It had an extended cireer.
In the main play of the evening Miss
Barrymore plays the part of a denure,
quick wltted country girl, the Country
Mouse, who goes to London nnd ner
adventures there nre the theire of the
play. A Lady Silvia has married a
rich member of parliament nnd brewer,
who find that marrying Into the nr's
tocracy Is not at all the" Jolly affair
dcc)ded at once to postpone her open
ing until late In the winter. Letters
recvlvert from her are In the most
cheerful vein and nre full of plans
about her work. A cnble that came
yesterday, said she was then on her
way from Switzerland to France and
that although feeling bolter her ner
vous system had not been restored to
strength nnd she became easily fa
tigued. It was this cable which de
termined Mr. Frohmnn to extend the
time In which she may seek further
restoration of her health and strength.

a liberal view of her marital obliga
tions, is not at all pleased to find that
one of the young fellows with whom
she has had a flirtation and has kept
dancing attendance upon her, has
fallen in love with the Country Mouse,
and the story of the play turns upon
what befell the. mouse among those
