DRAMATIC AND MUSICAL.

At the Boston Theatre, last evening, Her Majesty's Company sang "Les Huguenots." This is the first time this opera has been given in Boston for four years, and the audience was very large. Sig. Ravelli took the part of Raoul and Mlle. Vachot that of Margherita. This evening Bizet's "Carmen" will be given with Sig. Campanini as Don Jose and Mlle. Minnie Hauk as Carmen.

A large audience greeted Mr. Keene at the Park Theatre last evening. This was the gentleman's first appearance in Boston as a star, and the warm applause and numerous calls before the curtain which he received testified to the many friends he has here.

The Kiralfys produced the "Black Crook" at the Globe last evening. There is some very brilliant scenery, and an excellent ballet.

The criticisms of the London press upon Mrs. Langtry's recent performance in "She Stoops to Conquer" are at variance with one another.

It is said that the Prince of Wales was quite delighted with the acting of "the Jersey lily."
