The most elaborate musical en
tertainment ever attempted by our
local singers is the production of
Queen Esther, to be given at the
Masonic Opera Hall next week for
the benefit of the schools.
The director, Mr. Martin E. Rob
inson, of Chicago, has given this,
and other operas, in all the princi
pal cities of Oregon and Washing
ton during the past four years and
the press have invariably spoken of
his work in the highest terms of
praise. He furnishes the costumes
for the entire caste and chorus, and
every member of the company will
be clad in appropriate costume to
represent the characters and lime
of the greatest monarch history has
known. The store of Queen Esther
is intensely interesting and especi
ally adopted to musical and dram
About 500 years before Christ,
Xerxes, the reigning monarch of
Persia, caused all the beautiful
maidens of his realm to b« brought
before him that he might choose
the most beautiful from among
them to be his queen.
The choice fell on Esther, a cous
in of Mordecai, a Jew, who was one
o f the petty officers in the King s
household, and who had reared
Esther as his own daughter, but
had kept her nationality a seoret
The prime minister of tne realm at
this time was Haman, an Agagite,
and a deadly enemy of the Jews,
and because Mordecai refused to
bow down before him and pay him
the same amount of homage that all
the pers’ans wont to do at his every
appearance. Haman conceived the
idea of having the entire Jewish
annihilated. With this end in view
he procured a decree from the king
that on a certain day all the Jews
in the kingdom were to he put to
death and their property confiscated
When Mordecai heard
of the daughter to his race he urged
the Queen to go before the king to
make supplication and save her peo
ple. Owing to a law of the Medee
and P«rsians that none might enter
before the king without having been
called, Esther was loth to do as
Mordecai bid her, but finally she
consented to do so and was gra
When the king asked her what
was her tetition,. she asked that the
king and Haman come to a banquet
she had prepared for them.
following day when they met at the
queen’s banquet, the king asked
Esther what was her petition, and
said it would be granted “ to the half
o f the kingdom,” whereupon Es
ther denounced Haman as the ene
my of her race and told of his con
spiracy to destroy all the Jews.
Upon hearing of Hainan's perfidy,
the king ordered his guards to take
Haman out and hang him upon the
gallows he had caused to be erected
for Mordecai, and Mordecai was ad
vanced to the position of chief coun
sellor to the king.
This is the story to be told in
song and action at the Masonic Op
era House next week by about 65 of
the singers o f the city, and the event
will be the greatest musical enter
tainment ever attempted here.
