Rose Hersee and Habelmann will perform on Friday evening: grand operatic gala night.

Review: New York Herald, 10 June 1871, 5.

“This garden was fairly crowded last night, a large proportion of the audience being Germans. The orchestra, through constant practice and the unremitting exertions of the talented conductor, has made remarkable progress since the opening of the season. Last night the following works fell to its share [see above]. M. Jullien seems to infuse into the stolid Teutons over whom he wields the baton some of his own fire and earnestness. He works hard to bring them up to the required standard of perfection, and his labors are already bringing forth good fruit. The vocalists were Miss Rose Hersée and Herr Habelmann. The little lady, who was such a favorite in English opera, and who has been for some time past in England, was received with a hearty welcome at her first appearance, and by her brilliant rendering of Benedict’s clever and telling variation on the ‘Carnival of Venice’ and a little laughing song, both of which were encored, she changed the applause into an outburst of enthusiasm. Mr. Habelmann sang with her a duet from ‘Linda.’ His artistic rendition of German lieder is well known. M. Jullien has secured a treasure in the oboe soloist, M. Castegnier. If this gentleman would only extend his repertoir a little he would leave no room for fault finding. Mr. Harvey, on the euphonium, is also a valuable addition to the orchestra.”
