MISS TEIFY DAYIES'S "CARMEN" AT THE "GRAND." Another rich musical treat was afforded those of the Swansea public who comprised the audience at the th-and Theatre on Monday evening, ^ve opera selected was "Carmen," and Miss Te\fy Pa vies again sustained the role, and P1 t»erfect style. A better and more virile impersonation of the voluptuous, fiery-willed gipsy not been seen on local boards, and her pl% of alternate coquetry and passion was a Jtrioniç achievement rarely found in combination with finished vocalism. For Miss Davieev, voice is a beautiful one. It's rich contralto i.¡ attuned to all the varying for- tunes of her ro\ and the warm applause of the auditors was richly merited. As "Don Jose" Mr. Charles (aiter gave a careful in- terpretation of the rt, improving as the acts passed, and displaying no little skill in the situations. As the n-.entle "Michaela," whose every effort is dev to averting the fate which, with true WOanly perception, she can .see requiting her brother's infatua- tion, Miss Grace Nicoll gav an exquisite performance. She was the part to the life, and her pure soprano was heard to perfect advantage. The "Escamillo" of M*. Walter Barrett, and the other minor parts "Were all in good hands, and the c.horus wa.s agai0 ad- mirable. Evidence of true artistic trailing ¡ and an intelligent application of the Pi- bilities of the themes was apparent in this in the other productions of the company, and it is a thorough pleasure for any sincere •music lover to sit down to the Moody-Man- ftera' iatea^retatiofl -0* their- repertoir^
