complaining. Too many remember
last year's uproarious junket with
"Lace It Up."
"It was one long party," Op-
era veterans reminisced. The
trip was brought to a happy cli-
max in Buffalo with a big alum-
ni reception and other after-
This year's Buffalo stand will
probably involve more hard work
than fun. The performance is sla-
ted for the Lake Erie port's Er-
langer Theatre April 9, and the
next night the Opera is scheduled
to play in the Palace Theatre in
That means the sets must be
torn down double quick, loaded
in a van and carted back to Mi-
chigan in less than a day.
Adding to the difficulty are Ca-
nadian customs regulations, which
prevent use of the short route
across Ontario. Nevertheless Op-
era officials expect that with pre-
cision timing and feverish work
they can get to Flint on schedule.
Transportation won't be much
of a problem from then on. From
Flint the show will take the short
jaunt to Toledo for a one night
stay at the RivoliTheatre April
11. After, that the Opera will go to
Detroit, ending the tour with two
performances April 12 and 13 in
the Music Hall.

The most successful road tour
was in 1923 when "Cotton Stock-
ings" made even New' York's
staid Metropolitan Opera House
quiver with laughter. Netting
$8,500 while at the Met, "Cot-
ton Stockings" set a record for
Another outstanding tour was
made in 1925 when "Tambourine"
visited the nation's capital. A spe-
cial performance was held in the
White House, and it reportedly
drew roars from the usually silent
In 1929 "The Merry Widow"
traveled to 11 cities, but flopped
financially. It was the last Opera
to go on tour until 1950, when
"Lace It Up" was taken to Detroit,
Toledo and Buffalo.
Now, with the draft threaten-
ing, Opera members expect that
the 1951 road trip may mark
another end to the Opera's tra-
vels, if not to the Opera itself.
