AMUSEMENTS.

HIS 'MAJESTY'S THEATRE. There was a very large attendance at His Majesty's Theatre last night, .when Pollard's juvenile Opera Company repeated the comic opera, "Rip Van Winkle.? "Rip" will be staged to-night' and to-morrow afternoon. The doors for the tmatinee'; will be opened at 1.30;. the curtain rises at 2 sharp. To-morrow night we are promised the much-boomed musical-comedy, "The Isle of BongBong." This, merry work has been a leading attraction in America for the last four years; during the present seaI son it is being toured by fourteen companies. The production to-morrow night •will be on the completeness with which all Mr. Pollard's productions are staged. The cast is an exceptionally long one, and calls for the full strength of the company. Mr. Charles Albert will be seen as the bibulous mirth-loving "Sultan," a distinct creation from this young ar-. tist's clever impersonation of ".Rip." Several of the company, who have hitherto been seen only in the chorus, will undertake responsible parts. The plot is laid in the Island of Mindosa— one of the Philippines—which gives ample scope for charming scenery and dressing. The music is said to contain several gems, and is acknowledged as .being the most tuneful heard in this class of piece for the last decade. The box plans for next week are now open. OPERA HOUSE. The World-Wide Picture entertainment at the Opera House was well patronised last night. The einephone items were received with great interest, particularly, '"We all Walked into the Shop," and "Tit Willow." There will be a change of programme to-morrow at the matinee performance. ROYAL ALBERT HALL. Again last night at the Albert there was a good attendance to witness the existing programme, and there was ample evidence that the items were much enjoyed. The programme will be repeated to-night, but at the matinee on Saturday a fresh menu will be presented. TTVOLI THEATRE. There was a large attendance at the Tivoli last night, when the Tivoli Pictures were again exhibited. Master Herbert Carter, who was well received, has already installed himself as a universal favourite. The programme was well filled with well selected items, and the presentation of the various subjects. on the screen left nothing to be desired. The scenic subjects were very good, especially the "Scenes in Japan" and "Winter in Switzerland." There will be a matinee to-morrow afternoon. ROYAL "WELSH MALE OHOIR. At the Choral Hall to-morrow evening (Saturday) the Royal Welsh Male.Choir will give their final performance in Auckland 1 before' their departure for Australia, when a specially strong programme will be given. The box plan is open at Wildman and Arey's.
