The performance of the opera was, on the whole, better than one could have reasonably expected. The chief success of the evening was that of Herr Perotti. He blossomed forth as a tenor of the kind in which the dear public usually takes great joy. He sang an abundance of high notes and did not neglect the famous C sharp, which a few phenomenal tenors have introduced in the rôle of Arnold. It must be said that Herr Perottl gave this note with tremendous power and splendid quality, as he also did a number or other notes in his upper register. He has an uncommonly strong voice, and if he had some control of mezza voce effects, he might do some much more artistic work. He sang with an abundance of spirit last evening and was kept busy stopping the progress of the opera while he bowed his thanks for applause in the true Italian style.
