Only sections about music. “Olympic Theatre.—The drama of the ‘Master of Ravenswood’ still holds the stage at this establishment, and will continue, we doubt not, to do so for many days to come. It is the custom to speak of Scott’s novels and not to read them. The only exception that can be made is in the instance of the Bride of Lammermoor. In one way or another—musically or dramatically—the work has appealed to the public heart so frequently that almost every one is familiar with the story of the unfortunate heroine. To see a better version than we have yet had is, therefore, something; and to see the version which is now playing at the Olympic, and which Mr. Grover ascribes to Mr. Charles Dickens is a decided pleasure . . .The performance terminates at a reasonable hour, and the people are pleased. We doubt very much if they will be more than pleased. The piece, enjoyable in almost every respect, does not possess the elements of a strong and trenchant success . . . the scenery, costumes, music, &c., leave nothing to be desired.”
