THE older Gilbert and Sullivan enthusiasts among our listeners will remember that during the long run of The Gondoliers, the opera which was given at Windsor by Royal Command, an unhappy quarrol separated Gilbert and Sullivan, and broke their partnership for some years. It was during the interim that Sullivan composed Haddon Hall to Sydney Grundy's libretto. When the two old friends composed their differences, it is not too much to say that the peace was hailed with something like national rejoicing. Utopia Limited was the first result of their renewed collaboration. the thirteenth in order of date, of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas. It Was a real success on its production and ran for about ten months. (Soloist, Sorgt. A. BETTINSON> )
Tms, one of the best known and most universallv popular of all the Verdi arias, is sung in the first Act of La Traviata by the heroine Violetta.
Guests have been in her salon, making merry, and Alfred, in whose arms she dies at the end of the opera, after all the obstacles to their wedding have been overcome too late, has sung a merry drinking song. Meditating on the love which he has declared for her, she repeats the melody of his song, and then, suddenly changing, as though doubtful whether so true an affection can come to one like her, she dashes into the brilliant' ever free shall I still hasten madly on from pleasure to pleasure.'
