'I presume that there are some competent stage carpenters to be found. I never happen to have met with one, but I am ready to believe anything - even this. The only thing wrong about the first performance of Mr. Alfred Thompson's latest production [Yolande], at the Alhambra [Leicester Square], was the bungling of the carpenters [i.e. stage hands], and their voices were the only voices heard through the whole piece - a fact which might probably have been accounted for by the new production being a ballet. It is a very good ballet, very prettily dressed, and very well danced, and out to be seen at once.
