Brief. “Italian Opera.—‘Crispino e la Comare’ was given by Mr. Maretzek Monday night at the Winter Garden. It commanded the best house of the season, and is, we trust, an indication of reviving interest in musical as in dramatic business. The theatres were badly attended last week, owing, perhaps, to the election. The opera, on one or two occasions, suffered the same condition of things. It is time it changed.”

Crispino e la Comare obtained its usual success on Monday.”
