Unsigned review in the New York Times:

The Metropolitan Opera House was packed to the walls yesterday afternoon for the first time in several weeks. Whether this state of affairs was due to the performance of Verdi's opera, "Il Trovatore," or to the dances of the Russians which followed the opera cannot be decided by a journalist.

Mikail Mordkin and Anna Pavlowa made their last appearances with the opera company for the season on this occasion, although Pavlowa will give a special exhibition of her dancing on Monday afternoon. Yesterday they were seen in the pas de deux from "Coppelia," in the midst of which was interpolated the air of Tchaikovsky to which Mordkin does his arrow dance. After this their associates danced the second Rhapsody of Liszt, and then Mordkin and Pavlowa ended the afternoon with the celebrated "Bacchanale." They were received with the usual enthusiasm which greets them, and at the close of their performance they were deluged with wreaths and floral pieces.
