The opera is not a monumental work of dramatic art, but it affords abundant opportunity for the display of cantabile singing and of high notes. It is unnecessary to say that Herr Julius Perotti did not neglect his opportunities. He hurled his high notes into the auditorium with a reckless profusion that filled the upper part of the house with a deep and abiding joy. It cannot be said that Herr Perotti indulged in anything else that was notable in the way of vocalization, but he acted his part with considerable earnestness.
