Frances iieralta, Soprano, Will Have
Title Role in Production of
'La Gioconda"
Closing the thirty-second annual May
Festival series under the auspices of
the University School of Music, two1
concerts will be presented at 2:30
o'clock this afternoon and 8 o'clock
tonight in Hill auditorium. The so-
loist for the afternoon performance
will be Mischa Elman, widely known
concert violinist, who is making his
first appearance with orchestra at
these concerts.
Ponchielli's four-act opera "La Gio-
conda" with Frances Peralta, soprano,
in the title role, will comprise to-
night's - program. Other members of
the cast for this production are Au-
gusta Lenska, Kathryn Meisle, Mario
Chamlee, Vincente Ballester, and i
Henri Scott, assisted by the ChicagoI
Symphony orchestra and the Uni-
versity Choral Union.
The afternoon program consists of
Bach's D major, No. 3, Suite, Beeth-
oven's Fifth Symphony, and Tschai-
kovsky's Concerto for Violin and
Orchestra, D major, Opus 35.
Of the C minor Symphony the Fes-1
tival libretto says, "No composer has
ever equalled Beethoven in his power
of suggesting that which can never be k
expressed absolutely, and nowhere in
his compositions do we find a work in
which all the noblest attributes of an
art so exalted as his more happily
combine.... Possibly, were music so
definite that interpretations of abso-
lute music were obvious, we should
lose one of its greatest charms, for
music, indefinite to the mass, becomes
definite to the individual when it is
allowed to possess the soul and given,
freedom of suggestion."
Perhaps the most brilliant array of!
artists in any one concert on theI
Festival program will be heard at the
final performance this evening, when
a cast of six major operatic stars will
present "La Gioconda," in four acts
and five suenes. On this opera the lii
