Faculty Members and
Students Present Comic
Opera in Assembly
Four illustrious opera singers
of whom the Met knows nothing
sang a comic opera, “The Grass
hopper and the Turkey Gobbler,”
for St. Mary’s assembly program
on Thursday, November 9. The
cast consisted of two members of
the Junior Class and two distin
guished members of the faculty.
Anne Cooper, known in operatic
circles as Livania Cadman, and
Anne Sykes, famous as Rosanna
Scarlotti, ably interpreted the fe
male roles melodiously aeeom-
panied by Mr. Bulley as Giovanni
Kichner, and Mr. Roberts as Leon
The opera that they performed
was a delightfully eomic piece
that told the story of a gay and
gallant grasshopper who was
rudely eaten by a villainous tur
key gobbler while the inseet re
posed on a sweet potato vine. The
young grasshopper was mourned
by all his greed.v relatives in a
tone “suggesting divvy” and by
Miss Sykes, the lovely grasshop-
peress to whom he was betrothed.
Miss Sykes also rendered the eul
ogy delivered by the Reverend
Miss Cooper sang the part of
the maiden aunt with a distinct
nasal twang, and Mr. Bulley por
trayed the breathless herald who
announeed the death to a group
of eharacters “onl.v assembled on
the stage of the Italian opera for
The infamous Mr. Roberts was
well east as the villainous turkey;
he was also the narrator. The en
tire cast wept copiousl.v.
Miss Cate lent tuneful accom
paniment to the group while
Laura Walters masterfully turned
pages for her.
