“A season more brilliant has never beeen known even in this City of triumph and successes, and the director congratulates himself, in spite of the oft inclemency of the weather and other disadvantages well known, he has been enabled to present the standard works in such variety and with such perfection of cast as to win not only the most flattering support from the public, but the cordial recognition from the critical press.
In this occasion, Mr. Strakosch is glad to announce that, having secured the lease, for a brief period, of the Academy of Music, he is enabled, in deference to the universal desire of his patrons, to transfer his troupe from Mr. Pike’s Opera House to the scene wheron the contemporaries of this own great artists have won their brightest fame. . . The enthusiastic reception…has induced the management to announce it for repetition on the openining night, with its powerful cast, new and magnificent dresses, appointments, etc.”
