9780722252222: The Romantic World of Music

Germany and A ustria, before coming toN ice to sing in opera. The success of my concerts was unparalleled, and in Berlin, Vienna, and Dresden the enthusiasm of the audiences was so great that I was in danger of being torn to pieces in their frantic endeavors to get on the platform to kiss my hands and my dress! It was exceedingly flattering to me and a little overpowering. In Dresden the Crown Princess of Saxony was present, and expressed a wish to be presented to me, so amidst a scene of the wildest excitement on the part of the audience, who stood up and cheered without ceasing, I had to go to the Princess in the hall among the people, where she spoke to me for a long time and complimented me very warmly on my singing. Since we came toN ice, about three weeks ago, our time has been almost entirely taken up in accepting invitations to lunch and dinners, invitations which pour in daily like the visitors, who come from early in the morning until late at night! Last week I sang Traviata, when I had the most brilliant success imaginable. All my pieces were encored, and I had a perfect ovation at the end of the first act. The house was crammed from ceiling to floor, and the enthusiasm and delight of the audience increased from the beginning till the end until it knew no bounds, and in answer to innumerable recalls I was obliged to appear again and again. My entree in theB arber was another succes fou. This week I sang Lucia and after that Romeo.
