Quo of the beat houses of the season greeted the second performance of ‘ Faust,’ which took place at the Princess’s Theatre last evening Considering the heavy responsibility that this company assumed in attempting grand opera the work went fairly well, and the principal airs were rendered in sufficiently good style to gain hearty applause. The ‘ Soldiers’ march and chorus’ was given with great spirit and effect, and was about the best appreciated feature of the performance. This evening • Jf.M.S. Pinafore ’ is to be played, and this highly popular work of Gilbert and Sullivan should draw a large audience, especially as it should come well within the scope of the company’s capabilities.
