The audience applauded each song with gusto, and at times the opera was delayed by the continued applause.Dalton Weber, as Grenicheau, and Mrs. De Ello Simon, as Gerniaine, portrayed their parts well, and the appreciation of their fine voices was indicated by the applause they received. Thomas Brahney, as the Bailiff, and Aubrey Oswald, as the Notary, besides giving fine exhibitions of singing, injected some humor into the story with their funny antics. Henri Wehrmann was outstanding in the cast. His fine characterization ofGaspard, the miser, was the finest piece of acting witnessed in a Loyola production in many a year.
