Review in The New York Times:

Flotow's "Martha" was sung and acted at the Metropolitan Opera House yesterday afternoon, in the presence of a large audience, the cast including Mmes.

The great tenor was at his best yesterday-superb both in voice and action, and his labors were rewarded by the most enthusiastic applause. "M'appari" had to be repeated. Mme. Sembrich at the close sang Proch's "Air and Variations" with brilliant effect. Signor Vianesi led the orchestra
