Undismayed by two hard showers early in the evening or by threatening clouds that seemed to grow denser as the evening wore on, thousands arrived early and sat through to the end. Enough of the opera was presented to convince those who have heard all of the previous performances in a series now in its fifth season, that this was fully up to the standard set in the past. It is no longer news that these productions are grand opera in all that the term implies, subject, of course, to the limitations of a small stage and the difficulties of keeping voices and orchestra in balance in an outdoor setting. So far as the singing and the stage business are concerned, the productions are all that grand opera should be. JN THE ACT and a half pre- sented last night, the audience heard a good share of Humperdinck's entranci n g ot Regent Quinn prayer (neither has thought much about God, which in Quinn's case distresses a cleric relative of his girl friend). One little girl survives the massacre and Quinn and Conrad bring her with them. However, the little girl dislikes Conrad (the good man) and likes Quinn (the bad man). This little girl's love for Quinn eventually turns Quinn into a hero and gives the picture the proper ending. This is after the Apaches make another appearance, seriously injuring Conrad. The mood of the story, and some explanation, is given in the accompanying ballad which Eddie Albert sings plaintively on the sound track. The sepia photography also helps. Conrad doubled as producer for Associates and the Aldrich Co. Anthony Ellis wrote the story and Allen H. Miner directed. The second feature was a pleasant bit of nonsense showing a chubbier (yes, chubbier) and older Bud Abbott and a somewhat slimmer r and grimmer Lou Costello. ' But the two clowns retain their legendary sense of humor in a weakly plotted story involving an orphanage, the child welfare department, a gang of crooks, $200,000 in "hot" money, and a children's amusement park. The title is "Dance With Me Henry" which gives no inkling of the actual story. Showtimes Today MUSIC Kilbourn Hall Eastman Chamber Orchestra, Frederick Fennel) conducting; 8:17.

Unhappily, the rain came just as the children were lost in the great forest but before the lovely Dream Pantomine music which is the hallmark of this opera. Neither had the wicked witch yet appeared, nor the dancing angels (materialized for the occasion by Olive McCue's Mercury Ballet) nor the Gingerbread Children. All of these have rehearsed faithfully and on the word of Director Treash were prepared for a winning performance. Better luck tomorrow. It would have been hard to improve on the casting of the principal characters. Carol Dawn Moyer was physically a perfect Gretel, and she sang and acted charmingly. Marjorie Hall was likewise just right as Hansel, a part written for a mezzo-soprano voice. As the broom-maker father, William Duvall was in fine voice and acted with spirit, and Sallie Coss as the mother sang effectively and carried this part in the right mood. Owing to the rain, Carolyn Sixby did not get a chance to show as the witch, nor Shirley McGaugh in the double part of Sandman and Dewman. Evan Whallon, well remembered from past seasons, was the efficient conductor and Clarence and Betsy Hall again had charge of the scenic designs. William Gannett, chairman of the Advisory Committee of this city-sponsored project, welcomed the audience to another season of opera.

V.VJ Good Cast By PHILIP UNGERER HERE'S a "Fire Down Below" at the Loew's Theater and one can only wish that it were the script for this Technicolor, Cinemascope extravaganza. If ever a piece of stage writing deserved to be consumed by the flames it is the screenplay for this film. Fortunately, a strong cast takes up most of the slack and makes it pretty fair entertainment. Everyone must know by now that Rita returns to the screen in this one, though it's hard to see why. The three-year layoff Miss Hayworth took for herself has aged her considerably. However, we do have tough-type Robert Mitchum, fair to bursting out of his dirty t-shirt, and Jack Lemmon turns in a first-rate performance combining his usual wackiness with a bit of straight dramatic emoting. TRWIN SHAW must be cast as the "heavy" here, for he penned the script from the Max Catto novel. And Mr. Shaw spared not a slobbering word in establishing himself as the Carribean poor man's Nelson Algren. The low point is reached when Miss Hayworth, who is cast as an island trotter who has had a product on the market for some time, draws pnrve G6. -ooo By Request "THREE COINS IN A FOUNTAIN" Gene Kelly Dan Dalley "IT'S ALWAYS FAIR WEATHER" Doors Open 6:1 5 "Coins In Fountain" at 6:45 & 10:00 1000 Cars Free Port lea K.

Well, anyway, the story has Mitchum, as a Hemingwayish bum, teamed up with Lemmon, an Indiana kid out for kicks, as co-owners of a boat. They are contracted to take the lady to the States from Trinidad or Tobago, or somewhere in the West Indies. Mitchum spots her immediately for what she is and treats her accordingly. Lemmon, foolish youngster that he is, sees only a woman who has been kicked around once too often. He offers sympathy and understanding. THE LATTER half of the offering, however, does provide suspense of a sort when Lemmon, becomes trapped in the smashed bow of a Greek freighter. Not only is he trapped, but the aft hold is full of burning raw rubber, which is fast getting out of control.
