“Miss Adelaide Phillips, by merit and reputation the star of opera at the French Theater, was fittingly welcomed on her return to our stage, last night. The Trovatore was sung and instrumented with an effort and effect in encouraging contrast to the performances of the previous evenings. Miss Phillips is one of the best Azucenas known to opera in New-York, and it is needless to say that the success of last evening was in great part due to her able assumption. M’lle. Naddi and Signor Irfre sustained the other important characters with customary credit. The critical attendance of so many of the dramatic countrymen of Count Fosco—we beg pardon—was a surprise, if not a sensation. Just now, enjoying artists’ holiday, they constitute a very distinguished opera lobby of well-known characters.”
