The Casino Company began the production of "The Grand Duchess" at the Globe Theatre Monday night. The opera is in the main heavy and uninteresting. The music is not new, and what is worse not bright and tuneful. There are one or two good numbers, notably the Sabre Song at the end of the first act, and the duet, for the
Duchess and Prince Paul in the second act. The choruses are the best part of the opera, and as rendered by Mr. Aronson's carefully drilled company do much to redeem the opera from absolute mediocrity. The feature of the performance is the work of Miss Darville, who has shown during this engagement that she is possessed of exceptional abilities.
