THEATRE ROYAL. – Mr. D'Oyly Carte's Opera Company entertained a numerous audience on Monday evening with a representation of Messrs. Gilbert and Sullivan's charming opera "Patience."

The company has lost several of its leading members since it last visited Exeter, but in no case has the rendering of the opera suffered by the change. It was received with as much enthusiasm as on its first production, the encores were frequent, and a recall followed the close of each act.

Miss Marion Grahame still impersonates the ingenuous dairy maid, and received fresh proofs of the favour in which she is held in Exeter. Mr. A. James impersonated the "fleshly poet" Bunthorne, and Mr. A. Morris the "idyllic poet" Archibald Grosvenor. Colonel Calverley was admirably represented by Mr. A. Christian, Messrs Clowes and Lucas being his subordinates. Miss Madge Inglis successfully rendered the character of Lady Jane, the love-sick maidens being Miss Kate Cohen (Lady Angela), Miss James (Lady Saphir), and Miss Agnes Taylor (Lady Ella).

The opera will be repeated each evening this week, preceded by a one act Vaudeville entitled "Mock Turtles."
