“But we must not forget the Deutsche Oper, where the most delicious music and the most ravishing choruses are now nightly heard. . . . Anschutz is well-qualified to conduct a first-class opera house – when the time comes. Then we have such a splendid tenor as Herr Quint, who can touch up any tenor part, from Tancredi down to Tom Tit. Mdmes. Johannsen, Rotter, etc., are artists of whom any country may well be proud. The choruses – aha, herein do our German friends excel – are splendid. We wish that those we hear at the Italian Opera were only half as well-filled and harmonized. . . . No wonder ‘our folks’ crowd the seats every night.”
