BR9D9RT AX.VABBZ FAJIE,
Obstacles He Had te Contend AVitU
Before WIhIbk a First Place
The rewMr Mimical student aspirins te 1
a place im grand tptra, will ted much that
is enoeuraetng ta the early We of Alvarez,
the French tfeaor, nrfca, after staging lead
ing rolee In New York tats season, has
just left America, to fill as engagement
at the Grand Optra, Parte. j
Alvarec Is one of the youngest of fa
mous tenons ever beard, and while he is
apparently endowed with many gifts ef
fortune, such as a superb voice, almost
perfect physfctwe, commanding presence
and artistic temperament, the keynote of
his success Is eaatty hfc indomitable will
power, perseverance and determination to
succeed in spit of all obstacles.
Almost at the very "beginning ol his
career Alvarec encountered aa experi
ence that aright easily have wrecked his
future, says the New York Times. The
circumstance, at least, would have had a
retarding Influence upon a student lees
resolute and persevering. He had sung
but a few times when he was engaged to
appear at Lyons. Tbe residents of the
city were much displeased that a young
man, practically unknown, had been chosen
to entertain them, and they were not gen
tle in the manner of evincing their bitter
ness on the subject. Here, as in most
of the cities in Fraree, the opera Is a
municipal. If not a state, institution, and
the people are more deeply concerned In
the choice of artists than If it were merely
a private enterprise. Tn this city a great
artist Is given three chances to be heard,
and he is retained or released according
to the vote of the natrons. When Alvarez
appeared, therefore, almost the entire au
dience broke Into hisses, Jeers and shouts,
and It was some minutes before he could
be heard. He .had sung but a few notes
when a crowd of men and boys began
whittling, and the first MJt was continually
Interrupted la this manner.
Kept Plucklly On.
"I shall never forget my sensations on
that event," said he, relating the inci
dent to a friend. 'It was terrible. My
years of preparation and study passed be
fore me like a swift vision, and my dreams
of the future seemed suddenly to fade
away. As soon as I mastered my emo
tions, I realised that I still believed in ray
self, and, no matter what the public
thought, I would continue to believe In
myself and would put forth my best ef
forts. I kept at my role and worked as
hard as I could along the lines I had
planned, with a fierce determination to be
heard. Through the second act only a
slight disturbance occurred, and during
the last act they remained quiet At the
end & few applauded me. They allowed
me to sine In peace twice afterward, and
the result was that I was engaged for the
remainder of the season. A year later
they received my reappearance with
cheers. But I shall never forget how
easily I might have heen wrecked at this
point had I given way to the despair I
felt at my first reception there."
This trait was manifested early In the
life of Alvares, although he possibly did
rot fully realise the value of his posses
sion until the time of the incident quoted.
At an early age he had become proficient
on the violin, and later on the cornet.
When hardly more than 30 years old he
resolved to enter the competition for the
grade of bandmaster in the army. These
examinations are held at the conservatory
of music in Paris and are most exacting.
At the time that Alvarec appeared In this
competition, sVmht'WOL Thomas was con
ducting the examination. The young man
played an obligatory selection without in
cident, and then was handed an unfamiliar
piece, which he was to play at sight. He
started in on the task, and was just fairly
launched In the air when the pianist
EJopped. Alvarez continued on alone. The
pianist broke Into the accompaniment
again at the wrong place, and after play
ing a few bars noticed his mistake and
again Mopped. Alvarez had by this time
caught the spirit of the composition, and.
unaided by the accompanist, he finished
the reading. Ambrolse Thomas divided
his time during the next few minutes In
praising the student for his playing and
presence aC mind, and denouncing the ac
tion of the accompanist, which he declared
an outrage, as the unexpected errors
might have ruined the future of the
young man. He called to an assistant to
post the name of the accompanist, so that
he could not he engaged to play at any
future competition where a more disas
trous result might ensue by reason of his
Appears at FaHst.
After serving several years as band
master it was discovered Incidentally that
he had some natural ability as a singer.
But he had to overcome first & tendency to
bronchial trouble. He first intended to
engage in comic opera. Then, as his voice
Improved and developed, the desire for
grand opera was born, and two years
later he made his first appearance aa
I aust. The sincerity and earnestness
which marked his early efforts soon at
tractednoammon attention to him, and in
a short time he was engaged as the lead
ing tenor for the grand opera, In Paris,
at a salary which has never been paid In
France since the foundation of the Acad
emy of Music by the Grand Rol. Al
though Alvarec has held this high posltioa
for eight years, the management has
given htm leave of absence at various in
Unals to ateg la other cities in Europe
AUarec has shown himself the possessor
of a oice which Is one of the greatest in
Its natural merits to e heard on the op
era! r stage today, with abundant dra
matic temperament and a plentiful lack of
musicianship and taste in his singing.
Sorre of hto performances improved with
lepetition. At one Saturday evening rep
resentation he sang Romeo in a fashion
lii tc er approached at any other time dur
ing his stay here, and showed that purity
of intonation and less tempestuous robust
ness of method were sometimes possible In
him M. Alvarec ought to be one of the
great tenors of his day, and it is already
acknowledged tn some places that he is
ent tied to thte distinction. It is charac
teristic of New York audiences to care for
tenement, taste and art In singing, rather
than for mere natural beaut' of voice.
T nder no circumstances is false Intonation
to be tolerated. It will be Interesting to
observe whether or not M. Alvarez re
turns next year to this country.
T'p to the present time he has sung la
45 grand operas, in 11 of which he has cre
sted parts Not withstanding his many
honors and his great success artistically
and financially. Alvarec remains very
much an ordinary hunwn being. He has
no hobbles, no capricious ideas, and is ap
proachable at all times, except a few hours
before the opera. His favorite exercises
are walking and bicycling, and he is alse
an expert amateur photograoher. He !
especially interested In architecture, ami
has taken many a snap shot of some of
the handsome homes of New Yorkers on
the Riverside drive and tn upper Fifth

Bajrhettr Women SlRKers Hovr One
Kept Botth Flesli.
-Oettnsg tat Is the great dread of alt
women opera stagers, from the prima
donna to the ghi In the 'steenth row of
the chorus," said a veteran theatrical
manage, to a New Orleans Tuues-3emo-rrat
man recently. Juot why thee should

the more they warble the more Inclined
they arc to waddle, and such a catastro
phe takes all the romance out of a role.
TSo woman can be truly poetic with a
terrace ol chins, and when a singer sees
the fatal symptoms begin to appear she
is willing to resort to desperate measures
to alp them in the bud. Calisthenics, djet
lag, practicing with clubs, Turkish baths,
and even stralghtout starvation are a
few of the things that are generally tried,
but they are rarely successful.
"One of the few cases I ever knew in
which a marked tendency to stoutness
was successfully controlled was that of a
charming lady who Is still an ornament to
the lyric stage. Some years ago she sud-
denly took on flesh In an alarming fash
ion, and every one predicted her career
was ended. Next season, however, she was
as sylphlike as ever, and exactly how she
did It has never heen told. The truth Is,
her system was simple.
"During a summer vacation, spent in
the country, she had her husband drive
a dogcart ever' day along a quiet road,
while she held to the back of the vehicle
and followed at a run. That sustained her
and kept her from falling, and at the
same time compelled her to take violent
exercise. The horse went at a gentle trot,
which was gradually increased as she
became a better and better sprinter. Of
course, It was absurd, leaping along in
that manner, and the country folks who

plan worked like magic and she lost all
her superfluous flesh and at the same time
Improved In health a remarkable combi

giving her away, especially as she Is dig
nified, but the scheme ought to be known
for the benefit of other sufferers."

The first part of the programme was de
voted to beginners, whose good progress
in the course of one term speaks loudly
in praise of Miss Hemlng and her work
In the music department. The many fa
vorable comments heard on all sides on
the work done by her pupils could not fall
of being highly gratifying to the head
of this department.
Special mention was made of Miss Fan

Instrumental numbers; of Miss Helen Go-s
vocal number, and of Miss Myrtle Brents
In both vocal and violin numbers. The
excellent playing of Miss Fennel, who as
sisted the club on this occasion, added
much to the enjoyment of the evening.

LANOTRY AND HER DRAMA
"MATINEE GTLRT.n CHAFFS NEW
YORK DRAMATIC CRITICS.
Nor Does She Fall to Score Renovat
ing: Interviewers of Artful, Bat
tered Social Ruins.
If the critics had all unanimously de
cided to advertise "The Degenerates,"
writes the lively "Matinee Girl," in the
Dramatic Mirror, they could not have pro
ceeded In a more direct way than they
have In dilating upon the peculiar phase
of English society the soggy under crust
that this work of Grundy's brings to
light. The work of a press agent is get
ting to be a high art nowadays, and,
strangely enough the newspapers seem to
swallow luridly unreal anecdotes that
evolve from the active Imagination of the
men who are hired to "work" tho press.
And the Interviewers! The Interview
ers! How they hang garlands of Toses on
battered ruins and put tears of genuine
emotion in eyes trained to work like a
siphon upon the pressure of a lever. Some
of the "chats" with the English actress
would make Interesting additions to our
best humorous literature.
I don't know but what the Interviewers
serve a beautiful purpose In life, when
they thus Idealize surroundings, senti
ments and associations, sometimes of an
actress, sometimes of a Jockey, some
times of a prizefighter. They are the lit
erary tailors who sponge off and press out
the seams of life. Other things have
changed, but the Interview with the
actress remains the same beautiful fairy
tale that It used to be long years ago.
I recollect reading one of them "before
I woko up," as Marie Cahlll says In "The
Three Little LambsV it was about an
Interviewer who called to see Lole Fuller,
to question her on some desperately Im
portant subject, such as how she liked
America In comparison with Paris, or
something of that sort.
He Came lip.
Lole was suffering from a cold In the
head, or a stubbed toe, and was In bed
when tho reporter called. But she knew
that a subject of that kind would brook
no delay, so she sent dotrn word that he
might come up.
Of course Momma was there. Momma
was knitting a sock, or crocheting a pair
of tights or something, and only Loie's
nose and her golden curls showed over the
pink satin coverlet. She told the reporter
what she thought of America, her voice
sounding muffled, as it came through the
folds of eiderdown, and Momma went
over every minute or two and told her
that she must not tire herself talking.
I thought It was too cute for anything.
That was, I thought so then. Now when
I read things like that I bury my head in
a cushion and weep great, scalding tears.
It's so unreal.
One of the interviewers found the Eng
lish actress studying with an electric light
on the end of a flexible wire, In her rooms
at the Hoffman house. It was very touch
ing. Then Hilary Bell's critique was more
like a judgment of a horse at a show.
He did not allude to the acting, or to the
Play, but kept strictly to "points." He
dilated on the excellent texture of the
skin; the carriage, action, the style, which
used to be just a little balky In the days
"Oh. those days gone by! Those days
gone by!" as a poet chappie once wrote.
How an actress must hate to have peo
ple writing about her wonderful state of
preservation, just as though she were a
peach that had been put away In brandy,
Lillian Russell said a few weeks ago to a
reporter: "It amuses me very much when
people ask me how It Is possible for me to
retain my good looks. One would Imagine
that I was about SO!"
A Money Success.
Grundy's play Is c, money success, It Is
claimed, but if this is so, It Is a departure
from the rule which declares that in the
drama the woman sinner, whether she re
pents or keeps her boots on to the very
last, must die In the last act, with a lit
tle slow music. In the presence of a sniv
eling husband or lover, who is probably
much worse than the wicked lady, only he
hasn't been found out. One of the astutest
of New York managers told me once that
this was the one unalterable law. No au
dience will accept a lady "dusty on the
hem," as Plnero says, unless she is a
corpse. "We are a bloodthirsty lot, we
It's funny. Isn't It? Take all the play
heroes who have been perfect devils until
the last act and then they cut it all, and
are supposed, as the curtain falls, to re
lapse into a state of virtuous goodness.
