William Wolff and Co.

The play had been performed at the Grand Opera House during the days of the Castle Square Opera Company’s reign. Wolff was director of the opera company at the big theatre just around the corner from the Liberty, and there were probably many of his old friends in the audiences which gave him a warm welcome this week. However, this version must have disappointed former patrons of the Grand Opera House.
The condensed version of “Chimes of Normandy” left Wolff in misfit surrounding. His portrayal of “Gaspard,” the miser, (one of his very best roles) was hardly an imitation. He still retains his lovely voice and ability as a character actor, but cannot do himself justice. Moreover, his support is only fair.
