"The Black Hussar" will call his ahapely soldiers to arms for the last time at WaUack's to-morrow evening, and an extra matinee of the opera will be given to-morrow afternoon in commemoration of Decoration Day. "The Hussar" has proved a profitable attraction during the first three weeks of the MoCaull season, as It baa whenever It has been sung for the last three years, but the policy of tbe Colonel this seaaon Is to be one of rapid changes, exhibiting his company in aa many old and new operas as the time at his disposal will permit, and so " The Hussar" will give place to " Falkn" on Tuesday night " Falka" was produoed toward the olose of the McCauil season last bummer, and was received by such crowded and enthusiastic audiences that only the end of the operatic season caused its withdrawal. It is to lie produoed now under much more favorable auspices than then. Mme. Cottrelly, the original of the fiery aud eccentric Edwidge, was then In Europe, taking a much needed rest, and the cast suffered materially from her absence. She now resumes the role, aud may be trusted to invest it wtth all the fierce energy which It requires. Tbe beautiful and vivacious Falka. wuinh was sung last year by Bertha Rlccl. is to be done by Marlon Maitot. It Is a more ambitious character than this young lady has yet been seen In here, but sbe created the Wile in Loudon aud achieved a remarkable success In It It was her singing of Falka which first brought Miss Mauolato CuL McCauil's notice and Induced him to add her to bis company, and he anticipates a great triumph for her In the character in this city. Tbe rest of the cast is substantially the same aa that , of last year. De Wolf Hopper will sing his original role of tbe much embarrassed Von Fol-bach; Hubert W'tlke will assume that of the bloodthirsty Boleaias; Alfred Klein will convulse the house with his unique representation of the gross Brother Pelican: Harry Maodonougb wilt be seen as Arthur, the effeminate lover of Falka, aud Mr. ds Angelia will sing Tancred, tbe unworthy brother or the heroine. " Falka" Is to le presented for but two weeks, and will be followed by the new opera "Jao-quette," which Is In constant rehearsal.
