"Robin Hood"
The attraction at the Majeetia this
afternoon and evening will be the de
Koven Opera <'ompany in an ambitious
production of "Robin Hood." This
is the company, organized by Reginald
de Koven, the composer, for the pur
pose of restoring Die glories of English
1 light o|tera, ami giving a jaded public
more and better music than is afforded
in the modern musical comedy.
The principals were recruited from
the grand opera houses of Europe and
America, and a revival of "Robin
Hood'' "was made at the New Amster
dam theatre, in New York two seasons
ago, where it ran for six months to
capacity houses, was then transferred
to the Knickerbocker theatre for an
other run anil subsequently toured the
country to enthusiastic welcome.
It was Mr. de Koven's intention to
multe it a permanent organization con
sequently most of the original company
have been retained and are making
their third tour of the country, taking
in only the large cities.—-Adv.*
Grand Opera Successes
A short interview with some of the
leading artists of the Boston English
Opera Company, which comes to the
Majestic theatre, Saturday, March 13,
matinee autl night in the mammoth
production of Verdi's beautiful opera
"II Trxvatoro" seems to develop the
fact that there is at least one subject
on which opera stars agree and that ie,
that there is much more than a good
voice neeessarv to acquire success in
grand opera, that is why great opera
singers are so scarce aiid why they
command such huge salaries. It is said
that each generation produces only one
or two great tenors of opera. John F.
Sbecihan, one of the Best English Opera
Company's stars is without question
the one of the present generation. It is
conceded that he is one of the fore
most American tenors of the day.
Luckily, he also has great historionic
ability: in otiher words, lie acts as well
as he sings. That is what makes his
impersonations so enjoyable.—Adv.*
"Under Cover"
A thrilling detective narrative com
bined with an entrancing love story, is
the theme of "Under Cover." the new
play by Roi Cooper Megme which Sel
wyn & Company will present at the
Majestic next Wednesday, matinee and
night. T'he play is one which gtives
promise of rivaling the popularity rec
ords established by "Within the
Law," also produ/ed by Selwyn &
Company, and already "Under Cover"
has passed its 2'oo performance in
both New York end Chicago. "Under
Cover" deils with the pecret service
and an effort to discover the smuggler
of a valuable necklace. It is full of
surprising incidents and reaches u to
tally unexpected ending. According to
press and public of New York ami Chi
cago, "Under ( over" is a play whieih
will delight all classes of playgoers
and no matter what inroads moving
pictures may have made with the pa
trons of the gallery and balcony, in
reference to other plays, they will re
turn at least once to see this produc
"When Dreams Come True"
One of the greatest theatrical suc
cesses of the past year was scored by
Philip Bartholomae's musical play
"When ©reams Come True." The en
gagements of thin fascinating storv of
youth haive been confined to Philadel
phia, Boston, Chicago and Xew York,
during that period, and it will be pre
sented in this city for the first time
next Thursday, matinee and night at
tlie Majestic.—Adv.*
At the Orphcum
Not the least, interesting of the
clever players at the Orpheum this
week, is Harrisburg's favorite stock
actress, Helen Grayce, who is now suc
cessfully appearing in vaudeville and
who, with a very capable east is pre
senting a comedy playlet called "Bill
99 9.*" The storv of her vehicle is just
as interesting as it is well interpreted.
It deals with a suffrage bill that is to
be pa;f.fxl in the .Senate, Miss Grayce
essaying (iho role of the suffragette,
while tMc (Senator, who Miss Grayce
suspects of opjK)sing the bill, is detain
ed in her heme until it vs too Ifte for
him to njdflte his sperch. Just how her
scheme Works out must not be told
here. But the playlet nevertheless gives
theatregoers a new phase of women
pulling at the strings of politics and
the lines and situations are clever and
well handled.
It iniijlrt 'be interesting to note that
"Bill 999" was written by Miss Una
Clayton, who waa at the Orpheum a
few weeks aijo herself, ::nd who has
presented many very clever f'letches in
vaudeville. A« the suffragette, M : ss
Grayce is very pleasing. Donald McMil
lan, is very clever and very funny sa
the suffering husband, while Francis
Morey, is all that could be desired as
the (Senator. The host of Miss Grayce's
admil-ers in Harrhrburg, who have en
joyed her many appearances in stock
companies at tihe .Majestic, are taking
a keen interest in her*Jocal vaudeivillo
engagement. She and her company are
presenting one of the very interesting
attractions supporting Trixie Friganza,
the nota'ble headliner of the week.—

from Mine. Sarah Bernhardt at Bord
"I am sending this telegram from
the 'balcony, where I have been walk

in the "Vorwaerts" the former Lon
don correspondent of the newspaper, in
dealing wit/h the Dardanelles attack,
"The composition of tihe British fleet
•appears to confirm the rumor that Great
Britain has added two squadrons of
new ships to her navy since the war
-began. The sending of tihe Queen Eliz
abeth typo vessels to tjie Mediterran
ean shows how little is the anxiety
the British Admiralty feels concerning
its superiority in the North sea.
"The view is generally expressed
that the Dardanelles cannot be forced
without a heavy landing party. How
eN'fer, this difficulty should not he given
exaggerated importance. It is a great
mistake to view the operations against
the Dardanelles as a mere blurt. '
