Review in the New York Times:

Romeo et Juliette was the opera at the popular Saturday evening performance last night. M. Saleza sang Romeo and was in fine voice. Mme. Ackte, who was heard last year as Juliette, brings to the role the authoritative dramatic routine of the Grand Opera in Paris and the charm of her youthful personality to aid the pictorial side of her impersonation. She sang last night with more than her usual freedom of voice, and won the applause of the audience by her sympathetic performance. Mr. Plancon and Mr. Journet and Mme. Jacoby sang the parts entrusted to them at preceding productions of the opera this year. The audience was one of the smallest of the season.
