GRAU HAS A NEW TENOR
Scmbricli and Bisplinm Before Lars
cat Audience Known In Doaton
Music Hall Otlicr News.
.Pierre Cormibert, the new tenor, for
whose Introduction Meyerbeer's "L'Afri
calne" was recently sung at the Metro
politan, did one thing that deserved recog
nition, says the New York Evening Sun.
Ho sang: in tune. This achievement, af
ter some of the depressing exhibitions
given by other tenors this year, will go
far toward excusing the obvious faults of
the newcomer. M. Cornubert's methods
of voice production are such as to deprive
hla middle register of appealing quality,
but his higher notes have the true ring,
and It was these alone which caused the
audience to ask a repetition of the prin
cipal tenor aria In act 4. The voice Is
a genuine tenor, powerful in the upper
register, and of sufficient range. Dra
matically, M. Cornubert is Immature. A
elender, youthful figure might well be the
glory of an operatic tenor, but the poses
must not be rigidly conventional. Unfor
tunately, the footlights are a magnet to
M. Cornubert's feet, and he beats a re
treat only In order to resume his paces
forward. It Is only fair to say. however,
that the new tenor Is. in existing circum
stances, a real addition to the operatic
forces, and that the very faults of his
youthfulness will commend him to many
seasoned opera-goers. Fortunate Is Man
ager Grau, who can conjure up tenors at
a few days' notice, and can continue to
delight matinee audiences with the spec
tacular ballets of "L'Afrlcalne."
Mme. Sembrich Is to be the soloist at
the Cincinnati musical festival, and may
appear In other festivals, although she
has declined two offers which would pre
vent her remaining in this country after
May 12. She will have sung this season in
the three principal musical festivals of
the country. "Worcester, Maine and Cin
cinnati. She sang recently to the largest
audience ever gathered in the Boston
Music Hall, at a concert, in which she
was assisted by David BIspham.
Maurice Grau has decided that his opera
company shall next year have an extra
orchestra and chorus for the Philadelphia
season. The work of appearing thrice a
week In the neighboring town is too ex
acting for these branches of the organiza
tion, and practically prevents rehearsals.
The chorus and orchestra leave In a spe
cial train every Tuesday and Thursday,
returning to New York after the perform
ance. That brings them here In the early
morning hours, and as rehearsals are
called at 11 o'clock. It can be seen that
they are too much overworked to make
good work possible. It Is less exacting for
the principals, although they, too. rebel
against tho frequent Journey. They usu
ally depart, however, on the day preced
ing the performance, as their expenses
arc paid by the management, If they have
not forgotten to put a clause to that effect
in their contracts. The preparation of
the new works, announced this year, has
been delayed by the demands of the Phil
adelphia season, and Mr. Grau proposes to
take steps in the future to prevent these
Sometimes the comments of the casual
attendants at the Metropolitan Opera
House are interesting, as they explain
the different views of the audience, says
e. New York critic When Mme. Calve
last sang in "Faust," two Interested audi
tors, hanging over the brass rails, were
very much Interested in the large cross
that stands In the prison scene. One of
them was naturally anxious to find out
how it happened to be there. "Oh, that's
where her brother's buried," said one with
an air of great wisdom. "Don't you re
member, he was killed in the last act?"
At "Die Melstersinger" there was uncer
tainty in the minds of two auditors as to
the Identity of Mme. Eames In the opera,
"She Is the goldsmith's daughter," ex
plained the Inevitable wise man; "the old
Jeweler's." This Information did not
satisfy the other. "Jeweler's daughter,"
he repeated. Incredulously. "Not she. If
it's any Jeweler, though, It must be Tif
fany." A new opera, that brings the American
public temporarily into contact with the
latest musical thought In Europe Is Splnel
li's. "At the Lower Harbor." which ha3
just been produced in New York by the
Castle Square Opera Company. After
seeing the opera in representation. It la
easy to understand Its fate, says the New
York Sun. In Berlin and other German
cities It gained great praise. The mu
sicianship of the composer, as shown in
the expressive and varied orchestration,
his ability to write a stirringly dramatic
score, even If it lacked melodic originality,
and Ms, complete masters of the orches
tra were every whrr? praised, and tho work
was regarded as a really notable example
of modern operatic writing. Yet, after
, all this praise and enthusiasm, it dronp'ed
from the repertoire after only a few "per
formances, and this Is readily explicable
in view of the character of Its text. Such
accumulated horrors have never before
been contained In three acts of a short
opera, and if any crime be missing, it Is
one that the author considered too un
dramatic for use on the stage. "At the
Lower Harbor" is utterly unpalatable to

Grent Capacity for Work.
Some Idea of the tremendous amount of
work Madame Gadski composes and her
facility for acquiring her roles may be
had. when It Is known that she learned In
10 weeks three new operas In Italian, a
language with which she was previously
not familiar. These operas are "Alda,"
"Les Huguenots" and "Cavallerla Rusti
cana." On the evening of her debut as
Alda, in Philadelphia, she was given a per

weeks of concert; add to that a London

seen that such a tax can be endured, only
by one who possesses unusual mental vigor

children In school, the beautiful voice was
discovered. Her parents at once consult

bo cultivated, and she has been Gadskl's

early, and the public debut was made at
