What the press critics say about "The Golden Soldier":
"The Golden Soldier," the operetta that is playing at the
Liberty Theatre, Brownsville, is a Broadway-Yiddish operetta.
"The main thing
in an operetta are the furnishings, the music, the chorus, the
songs, and the voices, and the playing of the actors and
actresses. And in all respects, "The Golden Soldier" is a 'hit.'
The stage is beautifully furnished with beautiful effects.
Olshanetsky's music is sweet and heartfelt, and the first scenes
are lively and cheerful in the happy scenes, and are 'catchy,'
infectious in the naughty scenes. The melody of the song, 'Du
bizt mayn basherter, mayn bagehrter,' which runs through all a
leit-motif, through the entire play. (It is sung by Michalesko,
together with Zina Goldstein, in a wonderful scene.) With such a
melody, Olshanetsky should not be ashamed, in fact, of the most
successful operetta writer on Broadway."
the "Morning Journal":
The operetta, "The Golden Soldier," in the Liberty Theatre, has
everything in a wide scope: the furnishings and sets; rich,
facilitating the most beautiful for which a Yiddish operetta has
been awarded; the music is very successful in its lightness; the
playing is played with excellence. Even the chorus is filled
with young, beautiful girls who are great news for the operetta
stage of ours.
L. Kesner in "Tageblatt":
"The operetta, 'The Golden Soldier,' is really worth it, that
the Brownsville Jews should strip him of his last shirt ... --
Everything was like an operetta. Brilliant, brilliant. A little
sad. A lot happy. A mass of youth throw themselves onto your
eyes. A young, beautiful chorus. among them several excellent
solo dancers, young forces among the actors. And across
everything, the fresh, young music of the young accompanist,
in "The Graphic" (English):
The sets and furnishings of "The Golden Soldier" are wonderfully
beautiful. You will sing the music at least for week after.
Everything is placed on a wide scope. One has not seen this yet
on the Yiddish stage. It is really that Broadway has come to
Big Ben in "Di
"The Golden Soldier" is a very good operetta, finely played and
important news about entire benefits and tickets. Turn to the
