“NEW YORK STADT THEATRE.—The opera of ‘Der Freischütz’ was given at this place on Monday evening to a crowded house. Mme. Johansen as Agatha, Mme. L’Arronge-Sury, Aennchen, M. Habelmann, the tenor, as Max, and Mr. W. Formes as Caspar, sang with fine spirit and effect. The opera was most successfully rendered.”
