THE programme this evening includes two extracts from Ambroise Thomas ' most popular opera, one of them the Gavotte, which is best known as an orchestral number ; it was composed by Thomas specially for the groat singer Trobelli, who made a tremendous success in London in the part of Frederic, the young nobleman. The part was originally taken by a light tenor, but since Trebelli added so much to the effect of the opera with this Gavotte composed for her, the piece has remained in the score as wo know it now.
The opera is so well known that all that is necessary is to remind listeners that Frederic has come into the boudoir of Filina, the actress, in search of her; the words begin, ' Hero am I in her boudoir.'
