Pertile as 'Julien'

Aurelian Pertile sang Julien for the first time in New York to Geraldine Farrar's Louise on Dec. 30. The new tenor played the role adequately, with no great display of voice, and Miss Farrar sang Louise in a subdued manner with a voice that was all but inaudible throughout large portions of the music. As the Father and the Mother, Leon Rothier and Louise Berat were excellent, the latter bringing to the fête scene a genuinely thrilling bit of drama. Some of the best singing of the evening was done by Rafaelo Diaz as the Noctombulist and the King of the Fools. Raymonde Delaunois was excellent in Irma's aria in the dressmaking scene. Under the direction of Albert Wolff the orchestra gave a fine reading of the score.
