Wilhelm Ganz in Rome - at the end of 1892
One evening I went to the Constanza Theatre, when a new opera by a to me unknown composer was given, through the influence of Signor Tamagno, who played the leading tenor role. Notwithstanding the efforts of this great singer, it did not meet with much success. In Italy no end of new operas are given during the season, but the greater number of them are failures, and never reach other countries.
