fie II Trovatore Grand Opera Company and the War
"' "' " IM in hi in in in in n i
WHIIE the war hat raised the price of something!, it has caused a fearful slump in other directions. The
noted grand opera artists of the world whose weekly salaries run into four or five figures hare
found this out to their sorrow. While they can command their own prices appearing in the mi
sio loving eities of Europe, many of them are stranded in the United States and are glad to sell their serv
ices for reasonable prices and consent to appear in small cities.
This anomalous condition has permitted the Ellison-White Chautauqua System to include a grand opera
group of international fame on the program of the western assemblies this season, and their visit to this
sity will be long remembered.
"II Trovatore" will be sung in Italian in full costume and accompanied by Ciricillo's great Italian Band.
