“Der Freischutz, as sung last night at the Olympic, wanted a Caspar as experienced as our old Weberian stand-by, Herr Weinlich; and perhaps a tenor as good as Habelmann would have been welcomed. The opera was, nevertheless, not ill-done; the chorus as acceptable as ever; the prima donna in good voice and spirit; and the orchestra as good as it should be to give pleasure which a proper playing of Weber’s vigorous and genuine music never fails to occasion.”
(…) …The German Opera ensemble is also threatened with dissolution because their recent venue, the Olympic Theater, will host English pieces from tomorrow on.
