D'Oyly Carte Actors Continue at Colonial; Trudi Schoop Here With Her Ballet

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

An an antidote to the extra full measure of Wagner to which Boston has been subjected during the past fortnight, the superlative D'Oyly Carte Company of the Savey theatre, London, is presenting Gilbert and Sullivan operation at the Colonial. The engagement, which opened on Monday evening, in to continue for four weeks, and the repertoire offered includes almost all the works when the famous par collaborated on--a collaboration which resulted in great artistic successes but also in a good deal of friction to the parties involved. After seeing so many worthy but undeniably amateurish Gilbert and Sullivan performances by buxom church choirs and struggling women's club members, it is a relief to find a company which acts and sings with both finesse and spontaneity.

Trudi Schoop, the one-of-akind dance comedian, is to appear with her comic ballet at Symphony Hall this Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. Often called the "Charlie Chaplin of the Dance", she has made this type of humor a real art and quite in a class by itself. The program has eight different scenes which include the Meyer Home. At the Hairdresser's. At Rehearsal, etc.

Boston Symphony Concerts

The twenty-second pair of concerts by the Boston Symphony this season will take place this week-end. The Eights Symphony of Anton Bruckner, late nineteenth century Austrian composer, which is rarely played, will be revived, and Mozart's interesting Serenade for 13 Wind Instruments will also be heard. Mabel Daniels, Boston composer, is to have her orchestral prelude, "Deep Forest", performed.

The Federal Music Project has quietly but also effectively been presenting several interesting series of concerts which, although not always of high technical standards, show a good deal of ingenuity and discrimination. Recently, Sunday evening concerts in the unfortunate Majestic theatre have presented the Beethoven symphonies, and a Composers' Forum Laboratory has been held weekly on Thursdays. This evening at 25 Huntington Avenue, Harry Seaver '33 will discuss some of his works at this Laboratory as well as hear them played. The experiment has interesting possibilities, and merits attention.
