A newspaper reporter for the Los Angeles Illustrated Daily News, Charles Harris (Brick) Garrigues, wrote of the Biltmore Theatre: "Then, too, the operas are being given in the Biltmore theater, which is small enough so that you can sit in the top gallery and toss an egg with unerring accuracy on the stage. There is a sort of Italian atmosphere -- I'm not speaking of garlic. But if somebody wants to shout a brava during an aria, he does it, and if he wants to hiss, he hisses. The Cultured Iowans are in a minority, and the theater between acts has the atmosphere of the green room on first nights."
