"...with new staging, costumes, scenery, having cost more than $30,000."
“‘Lurline’ runs more smoothly now than it did at first, and in nearly all respects improves as it grows older. The audiences have been remunerative and once in a while very good indeed, yet the opera has not been as brilliantly successful as the manager probably expected, or as the perfection of its setting warranted us in anticipating. It is rather late in the season for opera, and beside that the double casts contained no name of real attractiveness. Good singing, however, has been heard there, especially from Habelmann and Brookhouse Bowler. The piece will soon be withdrawn. It pays, we believe, but Mr. Fisk is tired of it.”
