CARDIFF EMPIRE. Fun will be provided next week at the Cardiff Empire by Cruikshank, the clown, who appears to great advantage in his musical speciality act, which is interspersed with a number of good stories and a lot of amusing business. He is an accomplished musician and vocalist, while his patter is quaint and original. He is a splendid one-man show, and is quite a genial personage in private life. Cruikshank comes of a very old circus family, and has practically been before the public since ha left the cradle. He is the son of the celebrated clown of the same name. A pleasing ballad vocalist will be found in Miss Helen Ford. She is the famous Scottish contralto, the holder of numerous medals and certificates. Music is further represented by Eugen Joly, a clever performer on the cornet, and by the Wolkowsky troupe of Russian singers and dancers. The troupe com- prises eleven members, a combination of singers and instumentalists and dancers. They have re- cently returned from America, where they fulfilled a nine months' engagement, and came straight from the London Coliseum. Mr A. Wolkowsky, the founder and director of the troupe, was the first to introduce to a British audience a complete Balalayker Orchestra of National Rqssian instru- ments, and naturally he is prbtjl of this achieve- ment. Th§ itificess 6$the Wolkowsky Troupe in all*parts Of the world has led to the formation of a second company, and is now touring America. Both the troupes are booked till 1907. La Berat, the mystic fire maiden, will give a marvellous dis- play. There are beautiful lighting and scenic effects the dancer, enveloped in flying draperies, flutters across the stage like a huge butterfly. Aided by very artistically displayed lights, pro- jected from various parts of the stage, Mdlle La Berat gives some variations of the old serpentine dance. Her fire dance is, perhaps the most effec- tive, and there she seems to be dancing in living flames. The scenic changes, mysteriously made, are another interesting feature of the turn. Another well-conceived and finely executed exhibition is given by the ten Genis, who perform Risley" acts in a Spanish amphitheatre. Another acrobatic feat will be given by the Sisters Klos, while Alf Chester, the singing comedian, is sure to please.
