L!ASCAG?rS NEW OPERA.
An American Girt to Star In the Com- J

Several years ago Pletro Mascagni !
the famous Italian composer, left these
shores vowing never to return, tie
had come over to hear Americans ap
plaud one of his operas. But every
thing seemed to go wrong, and he de
parted holding both hands high above
his head and declaring, "Neve'r no,
never again!" Since then, however,
he has laughed heartily over his trou
bles In America and forgotten them
What's, more, he is coming back to us
with a , brand new production that
promises to be the biggest hit of the
grand opera season.. This is called
"Ysobei,' In which Miss Bessie Abott
the American prima donna, will star. .
"Ysobei" is the first opera that Mas
