It is seldom that such a large and magnificent company as Willard Spenser's "Little Tycoon" visits Ann Arbor. In order to , pay expenses here the house must be filled from top to bottom. It is under the personal direction of the author and carries the best musicians on the stage. The well trained and prettily costumed choruses, the pungent sayings, the breezy atmosphere of the ship's deck with its panoramic background, and the clean, sparkling element of comedy which vivifies the entire opera, combine to makea most complete production. Mr. Spenser has infused into his harmonious work an emphatic Americanism that adds much to the pleasure of opera-goers who have been surfeited with the metrical eulogy of other nations.
