POLLARD'S OPERA COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 6 February 1899
POLLARD'S OPERA COMPANY. We need hardly remind our readers that this ever popular . combination , will inaugurate a farewell season of nine nights at the Opera House tonight. &lt;A Gaiety Girl,' with which the season will be started, has been in rehearsal for some time, and as the dates were available Air Pollard has decided on producing it here for the first time. A feature of the production will be that everything used has been made in Auckland, so that it can almost be looked upon as a local production. 'A Gaiety Girl' is a merry, mixture of charming ballads, graceful, ballets, screamingly funny complications, and an exceptionally good plot. The story rests on the jealousy of a French servant, who places in the pocket of a cloak belonging to Alma Somerset ('a gaiety girl') a diamond comb, which causes her to be suspected of theft, and consequently socially ostracised. The first act- takes pine* in the Cavalry Barracks at Wlnbridge, and the second in the 'Riviera' during c...
