Figure CLAUDE GOTTHELF HUBBARD — GOTTHELF OPERALOGUES Management, GERTRUDE F. COWEN 1451 Broadway, New York Figure HAVRAH W. L. HUBBARD The Hubbard-Gotthelf Operalogues bring grand opera simply, clearly, easily and sanely to the American public. They are not lectures about grand opera. They are presentations of grand opera, and in such form that the musically uninstructed can understand and enjoy just as well as can the musically schooled. They present a grand opera in from forty to a hundred minutes, giving all the important text , the dramatic action, impersonation of each of the characters, and all the valuable music. They are strongly dramatic as well as abundantly musical. They are complete performances — not discussions, descriptions or analyses. The hearer feels that he is actually seeing and hearing the opera itself. OVER 950 Operalogues have been given during the last five seasons before Music Clubs, Women's Clubs, Colleges, Universities, Normal Schools, Men's Clubs and Y. M. C. A. They have been presented in California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Idaho, Washington, Kansas, Iowa, South Dakota, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine, and have yet to discover a place or audience where they have not met unqualified favor and commendation. They are universal in their appeal because they first of all are entertaining, and furthermore are intelligible, simple, and sane. If you wish to know a grand opera, and judge for yourself as to its qualities, hear a Hubbard-Gotthelf Operalogue. The HUBBARD-GOTTHELF OPERALOGUES include the following operas with others in preparation: Tannhaeuser Wagner Lohengrin Wagner Die Meistersinger von Nuernberg Wagner Siegfried Wagner Parsifal Wagner Monna Vanna Maeterlinck-Fevrier The Love of the Three Kings Montemezzi Mme. Butterfly Puccini La Boheme Puccini Jewels of the Madonna Wolf-Ferrari The Secret of Suzanne Wolf-Ferrari The Tales of Hoffman Offenbach Haensel and Gretel Humperdinck Otello Verdi Falstaff Verdi Prince Igor Borodin Pagliacci Leoncavallo Andre Chenier Giordano Carmen Bizet Cavalleria Rusticana Mascagni MR. GOTTHELF'S piano solos given in connection with the Operalogues, are selected from the most important works in both the classic and the modern repertories, and in themselves form a musical offering of the highest artistic worth and interest. The Mason and Hamlin Piano Used HAVRAH W. L. HUBBARD comes as one who speaks with authority, for he was for many years Musical Editor of the Chicago Tribune and is Editor in Chief of the American Encyclopedia and History of Music, which is the most important work of its kind since Grove's Musical Dictionary. He was for three years Official Lecturer for the Boston Opera House, and is entering upon his third season as Official Lecturer for the National Opera Club of America, an organization of 2,000 members which meets twice monthly in the Waldorf-Astoria, New York. The Hubbard-Gotthelf Operalogues were for three seasons officially endorsed by the Massachusetts Federation of Women's Clubs. CLAUDE GOTTHELF, the brilliant young Concert Pianist is the Music Interpreter for the Operalogues. Mr. Gotthelf who studied with Rafael Joseffy and Josef Lhevinne, has concertized with pronounced success in Europe and throughout the United States. Critical estimate as well as public regard places him among the most gifted of the younger generation of piano players, his technical equipment as well as his interpretative powers being of the exceptional. Mr. Gotthelf will be not only the Music Interpreter for the Operalogues but is also available for a recital preceding a presentation of the grand opera.
