MOID. VICAR OF BISTRE'S MARRIAGE.—On Tuesday at the parish church were solemnized the nuptials of the Rev. O. D. Williams, vicar of Bistre, formerly curate of Mold, and Miss Agnes E. Musgrave, third daughter of the late Mr. Francis Musgrave and Mrs. Musgrave, Mont Alto. PERFORMANCE OF "FAUST.On Tues- day evening, at tire Mold Town Hall Assembly Room, Madame Douglas-Adams gave her 23rd annual operatic perfoimance held under the dis- tinguished patronage of the Duke of Westmin- st2r. the Due, ess of Westminster, Mr. Samuel Smith, M P. Mr J. Herbert Lewis M.P., and others, Madame Adams this }ear seated Gounod's charming opera of 'Faust'' for^ro- duction. The performance was desenbed as her "last representation" of the opera, and ominous rumours have reached us that it is also destined to be the finale to a brilliant series ot operatic pro- ductions for which Madame Douglas-Adams has been responsible. If this intelligence be worthy of creden, e so much the worse for the musical development of "pretty Mold." The characters were assumed as follow:—Faust, Mr. Kelson Trueman; Mephistopheles, Mr. William Llewellyn; Valentine. Mr. Ernest Trowbridge; Wagner. Mr. Thomas S. Adams; Siebel. Madame Violet Monk; Martha, Miss E. F. E. uohnson Margarita, Miss E Stuart Douglas. The "French Dance" (by special request) and the celebrated waltz in the 2nd act were danced by Miss Gladys Lewis. Miss Stuart Douglas proved to be an ideal Margarita, and her conception of the role was irresistibly pleasing The impersonation of this most interestng character created a p-cofound im- p"e=sion. and among other numbers her singing of tho "Jewel Song" earned a richly-merited re- call. Madame Violet Monk made her debut in Mold as the devoted Siebel, a part in whioh she was admirably suited Her rendering of "When all was young'* in the church scene was enthusi- astically encored In this number the 'cello obligate was exquisitely played by Mr. F. E. Richardson. Miss Johnson was sine marly happy as the vivacious widow Martha, and her efforts received well-merited approbation. It is some- what late in the day to eulogise Mr. Trueman in his favourite role of Faust. H;s impersonation was as highly artistic as ever. The delicacy and refinement, he imparts into the character, the tendernrss which characterises his love scenes, are things to be remembered. This was the first visit to Mold of Mr. Ernest Trowbridge, the possessor of a pleas ng baritone voice, who in the attractive part of Valentine reatsd a very favourable im- pression. Mr. Trowbridge is a finished actor, and he acquitted himself well. particularly in the ex- acting death scene. Mr. T S. Adams imper- sonated the old Corporal Wagner in a creditable manner. Mr. Wilham Llewellyn, an old favourite in Mold, was again admirable as Mephistopheles. Throughout the opera he fairly revelled in his favourite character His magnificent voice. was bpa d to great advantage. The dances of Miss Gladys Lewis were enthusiastically encored. The whole opera was produced' under the direction of Madame Donsrlas-Adams, who also wielded the baton. A bijou orchestra. led by Mr. Horace Hasrdden. played admirably, and the chorus of Mold and Chester amateurs proved thoroughly efficient,. Mr. Fred Lewis was quite au fait in the arduous role of stacre manager. In conclusion, the opera was magnificently mounted and cos- tumed, and it is hoped that the unqualified success which marked the performance of Tuesday even- ing will stimulate Madame Douglas-Adams to a I U continuance of her good work. A successful matinee performance took place on V. ednesday.
