Local lovers of first-class vocal music are looking forward 'with pleasurable anticipation to the appearance in the Theatre Royal to-morrow night of the famous French soprano, Mdlle. Dolores. It ia rarely Ashburton is favoured with the visit of such a renowned singer, and it seems safe to assert there will > not be a vacant seat in the theatre. The programme to be given here includes many new items, and they have been arranged with the artistry and skill that one comes to look forward to> with a Dolores concert. The present tour, too, is an "au revoir"_ onei, for Dolores returns to her native France at its conclusion. The '"Sydney 'MornIng Herald," when Dolores recently appeared there, printed: "Amongst the great artists who have visited Australia none has become so acclimatised or has become as thoroughly at home as Mdlle. Dolores. The French soprano has returned here in great voice, and, as in other days, has brought her numerous audiences completely under the Bway of her regnant charm." The pianist is Mr Harold Smith, a brilliant musician, who, is also heard in solos. Mdlle. Dolores will only give one recital here.
