And Next Comes the Sensational Jeritza After four evenings of familiar operas, the subscribers subscribers to the Brooklyn season will welcome the winter's first novelty on thethird of January, and if the house is not completely sold out well in advance the writer is a poor prophet. For thus far the Metropolitan Opera House has not proved large enough to accommodate accommodate all who want to hear and see Marie Jeritza. How great a success Korngold's opera, "Die Tote Stadt," would be without this soprano from Vienna who has become the talk of the town is idle speculation. The fact is that with her it is a prodigious hit. A setting of "Bruges la Morte," with most of the reality of the story converted into a dream, it is interesting musically and so far as the dramatic side is concerned it is bound to take on new importance in the smaller auditorium of the Academy of Music. In any event the evening is going to bring Brooklyn's greatest operatic sensation in years. Besides Jeritza in the double role of U arietta and Marie, the cast will include Harrold, Telva, Lau-renti, Lau-renti, Lau-renti, Leonhardt and Berda, and Bodansky will conduct.

"The Parada of 1921" a Great Success After months of preparation, "The Parada of 1921," was produced at the Masonic Temple on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of last week under the joint auspices of the Junior League of Brooklyn and the Social Service Department of the Brooklyn Hospital. Hospital. Given under the direction of Capt. Charles W. Eddy with nearly 300 of Brooklyn's prettiest girls and young matrons in the cast, this revue composed of group dances, selections from popular operas and musical comedies and clever specialty numbers demonstrated anew that when Brooklyn society puts its energies into a project, it is certain to create a social and financial success. The "Parada" merits the highest praise for the professional smoothness with: which the kaleidescopic array of dances succeeded each other. In fact it was almost bewildering and the reviewer found it nearly impossible impossible to jot down adequate descriptions of the costumes, costumes, before the dancers had been replaced by another lovely group with even more elaborate costumes. By the time the stately "Military Drill" had arrived, it was difficult to remember the details of the opening number, the "Fluffy Ruffles Floral Ballet." Mr. Reginald Webster was the soloist in this number and Mrs. Andrew H. Mars the chaperone. The dancers, who wore fetching costumes costumes of orange and dark blue, included the Misses Violet Mars, Helen MacDonald, Roselle Montgomery, Edna Redmond, Marguerite Warnecke, Virginia Varick, Elaine Leonard, Dorothy Renouard, Gladys Renouard and Carmen Schneider.

Miss Grace Farrar wearing a rose color brocaded chiffon gown was featured as soloist in the very attractive "Cocktail of Flowers." The girls, in white tarletan ballet costumes, wore dainty tulle hats in pastel shades adorned with flowers. Included Included in this group (which was chaperoned by Mrs. Nathan T. Beers) were theMisses Virginia Fuller, Ruth Keen, Elizabeth Shipman, Mabel Singer, Margaret Clarke', Ella Murphy, Rosemary Murphy, Anna Rogan, Estelle Best: and Janet Murphy. A snappy little dance "The Bell Hop Blues" had as its soloist a very charm ing young girl with Mary Pickford qurls, Daisy Neibling, who, aided by her chorus of white uniformed bell-hops bell-hops bell-hops with red pill-box pill-box pill-box caps, made such a hit, she was obliged to give several encores. She wore a red and white striped costue with a saucy red hat. With Mrs. William William H. Price and Mrs. Charles Morse as chaperones the bell-hops bell-hops bell-hops were, John James, Royal Peabody, Gregory Price, Malcolm Flash, Henry Cabaud and Ernest Schoefer. One of the most picturesque dances was "Milady's Bandbox," in which the girls wore costumes costumes of pink and blue flowered silk, with short ballet skirts and pantalets and carried black and white striped bandboxes which they opened during the dance, donning the blue hats they contained. In the dance were, the Misses Agnes Callender, Louise Goetze, Lillian Hadden, Alice Sturcke, Dorothy Hall, Allison Heminway, Frances Tucker and Winifred Ward, chaperoned by Mrs. Charles iM. Heminway. An enjoyable feature of this number was a gavotte danced gracefully by Miss Lisbeth Higgins, who wore a white ballet costume with a lavender bodice. "Sweetheart," sung with great expression by Miss Nathalie Hillis, was another feature of the first part of the program. Miss Hillis wore a gown of Alice blue georgette with flowers at the girdle. Part Two of "The Parada of 1921" Part two opened with a solo, "The World is Waiting for the Sunrise," sung delightfully by Mrs. Kathryn Tuthill Chumasero. Assisting her was a chorus of well-known well-known well-known society girls who aided in making this number most effective. They also asisted Miss Frances Hawley in her "Taxi" number and Mr. Oscar Widmann in his exceedingly clever and amusing song, "Ma." Mr. Widmann Widmann accentuated the humor of this number by wearing a most unbecoming yellow and black striped gingham gown with a red sash and a wig of black 'bobbed hair. He was obliged' to respond to many encores. Another feature was the graceful Oriental solo dance by Miss Emilie B. Honeyman, who wore a rich and striking Turkish costume. Miss Leonor Enet singing "Bandana Days" assisted by the chorus brought part two to a lively close. Part Three of the "Parada" The "Folly Dance" which opened this part of the program was so lively and attractive it had to be repeated repeated several times. The dancers wore effective red ballet costumes with red balloons and coquettish red hats. With Mrs. William Dobby as chaperone, they were the Misses Vera Dobby, Alice Monig, Olive Beebe, Vera de Lodyguine, Ruth Phillips, Martha Halvorsen, Gladys McDoweE, Elizabeth Bolton, Virginia Bodenhausen, Edna O'Neill, Dorothy Mishenfelder and Amelia Seid-man. Seid-man. Seid-man. In the following number, "Kismet," Mr. Harold Muer was the soloist and the chorus of five girls in Oriental costume, which was chaperoned by Mrs. James J. Lussier, included the Misses Justine Sackett, Frances Hawley, Helen Sullivan, Gertrude Parsons and Bernice Linington. The most popular dance of the Parada was the "Pirates," which received 2,798 votes by Saturday evening. These voting contests were held at every performance performance and proved a picturesque and exciting feature, for representatives from all the dances moved up and down the aisles urging the audience to vote. Mrs. Erskine H. Lott and Mrs. Frederick D. MacKay chaperoned the Pirates who wore satin jackets of red and green with knee breeches, red hats and orange sashes. They were the Misses Louise Lott, Janlet MacKay, Esther Baldwin, Margaret Margaret Quinby, Louise Peters, Cornelia Livingston, Ruth Rebhann, and Lisbeth Higgins. Miss Grace Farrar, wearing a striking black satin Spanish costume costume and a black lace headdress with red flowers, was the soloist in this number, singing with a great deal of fervor the Spanish song "La Veda." Vying closely with the "Pirates" in popularity were the "Greenwich Village" girls who were charmingly Bohemian Bohemian in their rose-color rose-color rose-color smocks and gray bloomers and jaunty rose . color tarns. Chaperoned by Mrs. Charles Armstrong, they were the Misses Gertrude Thurston, Alice Dunne, Constance Marks, Mathilda Smith, Helen Kene, Mrs. Frederick Webster, Miss Elizabeth Elizabeth Armstrong, and Mrs. Charles M. Bull, Jr. In the opinion of this critic, there wasn't a group more charming and alluring than the "Winter Girls," those five pretty girls with costumes of scarlet and white, the white ballet skirts contrasting effectively with the scarlet coats trimmed with swansdown and white ruffs at the throat. The small red hats were trimmed with down and the tiny white muffs had a Christmasy touch of holly. Altogether The Winter Girls were irresistible when they danced and were encored many times. Mrs. William B. Jourdan was the chaperone "and the dancers were the Misses Louise Callender,' Helen Church, Ruth Englis, Maud Hadden and Natalie. Jourdan. Another picturesque
