A FITTING CLOSE.
Rendition of the "Flying Dutch-
man" Saturday Night,
The May Festival for 1898 is over. It
closed in a blaze of glory Saturday
night, the event being the rendition of
Richard Wagner's "The Flying Dutch-
man." The fact that an opportunity
was presented to hear this famous prb-
duction under conditions as favorable
as are to be found in the West, made
everyone look forward with eager an-
ticipation to the closing concert of the
series. It can be said with truth that
no hopes were disappointed. Althongh
there were no doubt many who could
not appreciate the entire production,
yet no one could help realizing that it
was a masterpiece finely executed. If
the Diitchman's opening recitative and
aria were without meaning to some,
all at least could enjoy the sailors' and
the spinners' choruses.
Mme. Johanna Gadski as Senta and
Mr. David Bisphham as the Dutchman
had the leading parts. Both were en-
thusiastically received. It is seldom
that a selection is heard of such qual-
ity and power as the closing scene
in the third act between Senta and the
Dutchman. Mme. Gadski clearly dem-
onstrated her right as the queen of
Wagner opera. Whether in the softer
and tenderer responses to Eric or in the
passionate scene with the Dutchman,
her voice possessed the flexibility,
sweetness and strength which are to be
found only in those wonderfully en-
dowed. Mr. Bispham caried his role
admirably. When one considers that
the part he sang was one of the most
difficult to be found in any opera, one
realizes the more that his success is
well deserved. Mr. William H. Rieger
orchestra and the grand chorus. His
long and patient work with the chorus
was also the cause of much of their
success. The work of the orchestra
must be commended. It may easily be
imagined that the effect of the opera
without such an accompaniment as that
furnished by the orchestra sould have
been greatly diminished.
Saturday afternoon there was an or-
chestral matinee with Miss Janet
Spencer, William H. Lavin, Miss Elsa
von Grave and Alberto Jonas as artists.
The 'Varsity easily defeated the Mich-
igan Agricultural College team Satur-
day afternoon in an eight-inning game
by a score of 20 to 1. With the excep-
tion of the 'Varsity's i1.)tting there
were no features. The 1 . - of the
'Varsity was somewhat cha.:ed. Mat-
teson played short stop in pic.- of Gil-

Senta were especially well rendered.-Mr. The 'Varsity is now batting in better Cook.
W. A. Howland as Daland easily main-
tained his reputation for operatic in-
terpretation. He put both feeling and
force into his work and on the whole
was most pleasing. Miss Janet Spencer
as Mary did not have such a difficult
role as the others, but was highly suc-
cessfulin msking her part felt when
she did appear.
The chorus' work was fully up to the
standard. The sailors'chorus, the spin-
ners' chorus and the responses of the
maidens and the crew were perhaps the
most popular parts of the whole pro-
duction. If any discrimination can be
made between the chorus work of the
men and that of the ladies, it must
be held that the work of the latter was
somewhat stronger than that of the
men. The ladies sang in perfect uni-
son and with remarkable precision,
which at times the men failed to do.
Much of the success of the production
is due to Prof. A. A. Stanley, who
showed himself to be equal to the diffi-
form than ever before. This will be
the last game before the Western trip
to Chicago and Illinoi.-. The team will
leave Wednesday and meet Chicago
Thursday. They will rest Friday and
play Illinois Saturday.
