Today -100: March 15, 1911: Of opera & women smoking

Headline and Opera of the Day -100: “KAISER MAY HAVE URGED ‘TWILIGHT’; But Nevin’s One-Act Opera Is Not Likely to be Given at the Metropolitan This Season.” Kaiser Wilhelm was a big fan of the opera about a teenage girl in love with a brooding, shirtless vampire (Enrico Caruso).

There is a furore in Boston over a planned women’s club that will allow... wait for it... smoking.
