MISS DOROTHEA SPINNEY

TO-MORROW NIGHT'S RECITAL

Miss Dorothea Spinney, the great tragedienne will appear at the Oddfellows' Hall to-morrow evening in "Poses from Greek Vases to Music." "The Travelling Man," and the Pierrot play "A Maker of Dreams.".

The Christchurch "Press says of Miss Spinney's recital: —

"Dorothea Spinney's recitals have been unique and memorable They have brought to light for some who had no idea of their nobleness the glories of one of the greatest literatures of the| world. Miss Spinney has clone something more than interpret great drama with beauty and passion. She has demonstrated the possibilities of the speakingvoice. Her visit to Christchurch will long be remembered as a period of mental refreshment to those whose minds are oppressed by the war, and who at the same time are unable to join in the banal joys of musical comedies and the picture shows."

It is to be hoped that everyone in this district will avail themselves of the opportunity of hearing so great an artist as Miss Spinney, who in these times of war is an undoubted rarity even in the cities.
