The Song Birds

The music written by Victor Herbert is charming, and the finale at Brighton on Tuesday evening had to be repeated several times, the audience obliging three curtain calls in a vain attempt to hear it once more.
The Song Birds needs no extended comment. It is enjoyable from the rise to the fall of the curtain. A production better suited to vaudeville has yet to be placed on a stage, and although the story is local, centering in the rivalry of the grand opera impresarios, the comedy can scarce fail anywhere.
