The stage for the production of "Siegfried" in the Stadium on Friday evening is nearing completion, and will be practically finished by tonight, although some details still remain to be taken care of. The sounding-shell is in place, and all that remains to be done is to tear down the scaffolding and put up the side and back canvass. Elaborate arrangements have been made for lighting the stage and there will also be excellent facilities for lighting the part of the Stadium occupied by the audience, as the intermissions will be very long. In all, eighteen miles of wire have been used.
This evening Mr. Loomis Taylor, stage manager of the Metropolitan Opera. House of New York City, will try the various stage sets, and get everything in smooth working order. Tomorrow evening there will be a rehearsal, open only to those bearing passes. The properties and accessories of the Metropolitan Opera House, which will be used in the production, are being kept in the baseball cage. The larger pieces of scenery, which will come from the Boston Opera House, will arrive today.
The sale of seats has been very large, and comparatively few are left. Orders have come in from all over the country even as far as the Pacific Coast.
