THE Castle Square Opera Company, now in its third century of performances, will add a new opera to its repertoire next week, Sir Julius Benedict's "The Lily of Killarney." This is a musical version of the drama, "The Colleen Bawn," whose thrilling story is adapted admirably to lyrical expression. The heiress, Ann Chute, has a rival in Eily O'Connor, the Colleen Bawn. Myles na Coppaleen, the peasant lover of Eily, is devoted to her although knowing her to be the wife of another, Hardress Cregan. The latter would desert her and wed Ann Chute in order to raise the mortgage on his estate. The only solution of his difficulty is to get the Colleen Bawn out of the way. The idea is repulsive to him, but Donny Mann, the devoted hireling of Cregan, expresses his readiness to act if Cregan will but send his glove as a token secretly understood between them that the Colleen is to disappear. The glove is sent by a misunderstanding and Donny Mann acts. Eily is led by him to enter his boat under the pretense that her husband has sent for her. He rows her to a solitary cave, which chances to be the secret haunt of Myles. The latter shoots Donny Mann, whom he mistakes for another in the dim light, and saves the Colleen Bawn by a "header" into the water. Cregan is arrested for murder on confession of Donny Mann, who is wounded, but not dead. At the moment of Cregan's marriage with the heiress, Myles produces the living Eily O'Connor, Hardress' lawful wife, and Mrs. Cregan absolves her son of even intentional guilt by confessing that she alone procured the glove that was to convey to Donny Mann the order to execute his wicked design.
The cast follows: Eily O'Connor, the Colleen Bawn, Miss Clara Lane; Mrs. Cregan, Miss Kate Davis; Sheelah, Miss Cora Deane; Miss Ann Chute, the heiress, Miss Edith Mason; Hardress Cregan, Mr. Thomas H. Persse; Myles na Coppaleen, Mr. J. K. Murray; Mr. Corrigan, Mr. John Read; Father Tom, Mr. Arthur Wooley; Donny Mann, Mr. William Wolff.
This opera is practically new to Boston theatre goers. Its plot is romantic and fascinating. The picturesqueness of the Irish peasantry, whose love story it is, furnishes a delightful charm. The company has been rehearsing the opera for two weeks, a longer period than usual, and an exceedingly fine production is promised. It goes without saying that nothing will be lacking in the matters of costumes and scenery.
