that time been the home of an English stage. Under the name
of the Gayety Theatre it is at the present time the home of Eng
lish vaudeville.

The German drama therefore had to seek a new home. Be
ginning with the season 1903-1904 the Odeon, an auditorium
seating two thousand, centrally located at Grand and Finney
Avenues, became the home of German drama. With the excep
tion of the season 1904-1905, when Heinemann and Welb utilized
the Olympic Theatre on Sunday evenings for their stage, the
Odeon continued to be the regular home of the German drama
till the opening in 1913 of the present Victoria Theater.

The joint directorship of Heineman and Welb of the Ger
man stage in St. Louis continued till Heinemann s death, Febru
ary 2, 1908. Welb, who had been stage manager while Heine
mann assumed charge of the business phases of the directorship,
then continued as sole director till his death, October 2, 1910.

mise and under her directorship brought the season of 1910-1911
to a conclusion. Since 1911 Hans Loebel, the present director
of the Victoria Theater, has been in charge of the German stage
in St. Louis.

The history of the German stage under the directorship of
Heinemann and Welb after the termination of the Germania
Theater and during the seasons of 1910-11 and 1911-12 was one
of even tenor. Performances were given regularly on Sunday
evenings from October till April or May. Attendance was fair.
The season of 1905-1906 ended with a small deficit. But usually
the theatre was a financial success without the aid of subsidy or
guarantee. In several instances it became necessary to forestall
an impending deficit by exhortation to better attendance in the col
umns of the press and in speeches before the curtain in the the
atre. In such instances the public responded promptly. Through
out these years an unusually cordial relation existed between the
directorship and the members of the ensemble and the public, as
reflected in press comment from time to time. The press always
granted liberal space to a review of the plays which, as far as
the dramatic presentation was concerned, \vere almost universally
complimentary, though it took several years after the introduc
tion of the realistic drama before the reviewer began to comment
upon them in a conciliatory tone.

V. 1911-1914.

THE PRESENT DIRECTORSHIP. THE VICTORIA THEATER.

When the Germania Theater was permanently closed to the
German drama in 1903, those most interested in the continuance
of the German stage at once began to formulate plans for the
building of a new theatre. The plans slowly materialized. In
the course of time the Deutscher Theaterbau-Gesellschaft was or
ganized. In order to interest as many Germans as possible in the
theatre it was planned not to allow a few men to build and own
the new theatre and therefore to control its destiny, but to issue
stock at ten dollars per share to as many individuals as possible.



German Drama on the St. Louis Stage 73

Initially the capital stock of the Theaterbau-Gesellschaft was
fixed at $75,000. On the first of April, 1907, one-half of this
total was called in. Immediately a building site was purchased
on which to erect the proposed theatre. But it soon became mani
fest that a larger capital stock would be needed in order to insure
a theatre of any consequence. The venture then dragged until
the spring of 1912, when the directorate of the building associa
tion again brought the project before the public. The association
voted to increase its capital stock and commenced building
operations at once. The building, located on the north
side of Delmar Boulevard, west of Grand Avenue, was
completed at a cost of about $150,000, owned by between 500
and 600 stockholders. At the time the building was opened the
Board of Directors was made up of the following men of promi
nence: Leo Rassieur, President; Edward Westen, Vice-Presi-
dent; J. A. Valentin Schmidt, Secretary; Henry Heil, Treas
urer; Edward L. Preetorius, John R. Payten, Hans Loebel,
Frank W. Feuerbacher, Jacob D. Goldman, Hans Hackel, Frank
Tombridge, Fred Widman and Henry Walk.

The new theatre the Victoria Theatre was formally
opened March i, 1913, under the artistic directorship of Hans
Loebel, who had opened the season October 6, 1912, in the Odeon,
where, as pointed out above, he had also directed the German
stage in 1911-1912. At this opening performance Goethe s
Faust was given. Mile. Kate Herbst, leading lady of the Papst
Theater in Milwaukee, and C. G. Ackermann, of the Deutsches
Theater in New York, appeared in the roles of Gretchen and
Mephistopheles, respectively, assisted in the other parts by mem
bers of the local stock company.

The Victoria Theater under Loebel s direction has been an
artistic success. The season 1912-1913, concluding April 24,
ended with a small deficit. The season 1913-1914 (October 5
till May 10) ended with a deficit of approximately $12,000.
These deficits were readily made up by subscription among the
more enthusiastic supporters of the German stage. As the defi
cits indicate, the German theatre does not receive support from



74 German Drama on the St. Louis Stage

the German element at large in St. Louis in the measure it de
serves. But the relative smallness of the deficits, compared with
those of New Work, Milwaukee, and other places, speaks well
for the extent of interest in the German drama that still does
exist in the city. At present German performances continue to
be given in the Victoria Theatre once weekly on Sunday evenings
throughout the season from October till May. In addition to
these performances a half dozen mid-week performances have
for several seasons past been given in other auditoriums under
the auspices of the "Kunstbienen," an organization of German
women interested in the furtherance of German art and culture.
These mid-week performances have been devoted principally to
the modern realistic drama. 45

APPENDIX.

STATISTICAL SURVEY OF THE SEVERAL STAGES.
For comparative purposes the statistical survey of the sev
eral stages for the various periods in the history of the German
drama on the St. Louis stage is arranged in tabulated form. Un
der Table A I, A II, etc., are recorded the relative number of
authenticated performances for different types of plays and the
percentage of plays of a given type performed on a particular
stage compared to the total number of plays performed on that
stage. In order to indicate the relative literary value of the sev
eral stages the plays of the authors who receive recognition in
the annals of German literary history are tabulated separately in
Table B I, B II, etc.

I. 1842-1859.

THE BEGINNINGS.

In the instance of the Volkstheater a number of stages
during the period in the history of the German drama on the St.
Louis stage ending with the establishment of the St. Louis
Opernhaus at times announced performances without giving the
title of plays to be staged. Moreover, as protests in the news
paper columns indicate, in some instances titles of plays were
changed ad libitum, making it impossible, inasmuch as the casts
of characters were not printed, to identify such plays. In sev
eral instances extant records present slight gaps (cf. Preface}
and therefore do not permit reconstruction of the repertory of
the contemporary theatres with completeness. Statistical in
formation contained in the tables for this period is therefore
based upon repertories which are representative, but cannot rep
resent scientific accuracy.

THE ST. LOUIS OPERNHAUS.

Extant records for the performances from April 21 to Oc
tober 19, 1860, are incomplete (cf. Preface). The reconstructed
repertory for the Opernhaus is, however, practically complete,
for fifteen of the theatrical performances for the period between
April 21 and October 19 are accounted for, and it was during
this period that the performances of the Colson and the New
Orleans opera companies, of the Siegrist-Zamfretta corps de
ballet and of the concert company of Anna Bishop alternated
with the German theatrical performances.



*Lessing s Minna von Barnhelm was performed on February 18, 1857, at
a "klassischer Buhnen-Abend," arranged by Bornstein to celebrate the organ
ization of the "Detttsches Institut fur Wissenschaft, Kunst und Gewerbe."
The program, carried out by an ensemble made up of the best talent on
Wolff s stage and former members of the Philodramatische Gesellschaft, was
made up of the Overture to Weber s Freischiitz, a prologue composed and
spoken by Bornstein, Beethoven s Overture to Egmtmt, a scene from Egmont,
the Overture to Mozart s Zauberflote, a scene from Kabale und Liebe, We
ber s Overture to Oberon, and Minna von Barnhelm.

**Usually given in Holbein s version, Die bezahmte Widerspenstige.
