MUSICAL NOTES

At the Metropolitan Opera House yesterday afternoon "Faust" was repeated with what has been called the "ideal" cast. It certainly is a most admirable array of artists, who sing Gounod's beautiful music as it has not been sung in America in years, and, so far as Edouard de Reszke is concerned, in a manner never excelled and probably never equaled. Last night "La Sonnambula" was given, Mlle. Marie Van Zandt repeating her performance of Amina. To-morrow evening, instead of the first act of "Die Walküre," as previously announced, Gluck's "Orfeo" will be sung, together with Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana." On Saturday afternoon the last performance of the season will be devoted to "Les Huguenots."
