Lauri-Volpi Returns

Giacomo Lauri-Volpi effected his reentry into the Metropolitan on Wednesday evening in the season's second hearing of "Andrea Chenier," the occasion being of further importance on account of Florence Easton's first appearance in some time in the role of Madeleine.

Mr. Lauri-Volpi was well received by a sizable audience that braved the tempest to applaud his "Improvviso" and the last act Romanza which he sang especially well. Dramatically, he was very satisfactory throughout the opera. Mme. Easton made the part of Madeleine a very touching one and her scene in the prison was very gripping. Her singing was of the high calibre that one always expects from this sterling and versatile artist.

The remainder of the cast included Giuseppe Danise as Gerard, a role which he sings exceedingly well, and Kathleen Howard, Ellen Dalossy and Marion Telva, also Messers. Reschiglian, Paltrineri. Malatesta, Bada, Picco, Ananian and D'Angelo. Tullio Serafin conducted.
