Massenet's Thais was added to the repertory of the . Century Opera, Company Company last evening, when Its first performance performance was given in English. .The audience waa about aa large as those that have witnessed most of the Cen tury performances. It Is a noteworthy fact that the opening of the larger bouse on Broadway haa as yet had little effect effect upon the numbers who . visit the Century Opera. Thais.", since Mr. Hammerstaln first Introduced it to this public half a dozen years ago, haa retained a certain popularity, though It Is. not one of his most brilliantly "Inspired works for the lyric stage. It has a few taking passages passages which please the public, the re doubtable " Meditation " being. of course, the chief. But there are extensive extensive strata of dullness and of slow sol emnity in the opera, when the action proceeds with the utmost deliberation or halts entirely. The doings of the early Christians on the Banks of the Nile are sometimes a little slow for modern taste In dramatic representation. On the other hand, the scenes of gayety In Alexandria offer contrast and relief. The part that Miss Mary Garden had In making " Thais " popular is not lightly to be disregarded in considering the place of the opera in mw repertory; nor tne assistance rendered rendered her by such artists as Messrs. Renaud and Dal mores. All of whom have been prominent . In performances of the opera heretofore heard In New York. There waa Intelligent striving on the part of the singers who carried the burden burden of the musical drama last evening. Mr. Kriedler as Athanael was deserving of much credit for his sincere and skillful skillful Impersonation, -as -as well aa for excellent excellent singing. There were ibo excellences excellences In Miss Ewell's Thais. The later part of It was better than the unregen-erate unregen-erate unregen-erate portion, and yet if she did not wholly succeed in this it was not for lack of an anxious imitation of Miss Garden's manner, poses, gestures, and even, what was more serious, some of her vocal mannerisms. Mr. Bergman met reasonable expectations, not too high, as Nlcias. Mr. Szendrei worked hard to get good results from the orchestra, orchestra, which showed training, and certain Instrumental solo effects were well played. Among these the violin solo. In the "-Meditation "-Meditation "-Meditation ',' did not hold a high place, though this interlude waa repeated repeated at the demand of the audience, as has so often been the case before. The scenery, it was announced, was borrowed from the Boston Opera House, as the Metropolitan Opera House has never produced " Thais " and had none to lend. But it did not do much credit to the Boston Opera House, either in design or . in color, and much of it seemed rather crude. W.
