“A letter has been received by Mr. Maretzek in which Madame Medori announces that she has obtained from Signor Petrella, the composer of ‘Ione,’ the opera which was so eminently successful here, a promise to come to New York next season to superintend in person the production of a new opera, written expressly for the Maretzek troupe, as a token of thanks on part of the maestro for their grand performance of his ‘Ione,’ and as his most effective method of proving his appreciation of their talent.”
