Union Operas To Eliminate
Jazz From Musical Numbers,




That the next Union opera is to
have as little jazz music as posslible;
anilthat the troulble with current pop-
ular musical rendition in general is
that it runs everything into the same
mould-are the statements of E. 1.
Shuter, Union opera director.
Believing that the large majority of
musical comedies are too largely
characterized by jazz music and that
a musical comedy does not necessar-
ily have to depend upon the rythm of'
jazz for success, Mr. Shuter has be-
gun the production of the next opera
with a view to having its music origin-!
al and cl'aracteristically American.
"There is no such thing as jazz music
perse," says Mr. Shuter.
To illustrate what he means by pro-
per music for the musical comedy, Mr.

Shuter point to the music of "Sitting
IPretty." This kind of music will live,
he thinks, and will be a real factor in
the success of Union operas.
Mr. Shuter attributes the popularity
of jazz music to the competitive spirit
of jazz bands and orchestras and to
those personally who play in them.
"Today the premium and high salary,
gontto the best music, but to the
one who can perforI the most starti-
ing individual stunts or who can most
violently distort the original score.
"There is already some evidence of
the return to a purer, more original,
saner form of popular music, or more
precisely, the way in which it is com-
ing to be rendered, and the time may
soon come when it wil be no credit
to a show to say that it jazzes its
music after a distorted fashion."
