 “This evening at Irving Hall, a grand musical evening in honor of M. William Castle, the young and brilliant American tenor so often applauded last winter. Mme Guerrabella, Mme d’Angri, Mlle Barnetche, M. Abella, M. Theodore Thomas, and a number of other artists contribute to form a completely matchless program.”
