"Little Tycoon," presented by the author's own company and orchestra will be at the Grand Opera House, Friday evening, May 15. When Willard Spencer conceived his charming nautical Japanese opera, 'The Little Tycoon,' he notonly won his way to fame, but also to fortune. He can truthfully say to-day that he has the prettiest and most popular comic opera in existence. This fact has not only been proven by the plaudits of the people, but by the goodly number of shekels that the author has pocketed from his performances. A very competent judge who has heard all of ├╝ilbert and Sullivan's operas, also the latest one for stage honors, "ThePearl of Pekin," does not hesitate to pronounce Spencer's production the best vet heard. It is the cleanest, neatest and most entertaining composition oL music and drama that has made its appearance in years. Mr. Spencer also has the best organized company in existence, from the fact that any one; or even two, of his cast may quit without notice, and he has some one always ready to fill the vacancy. He now has a most magnificent company of people, every part seeming to be fitted to the player.
