Music: Note

Kahn & Eckstein. Otto Hermann Kahn, prime patron of Manhattan's Metropolitan Opera, visited Louis Eckstein, prime patron of Chicago's summer "opera house in the woods" (Ravinia Park). Together they listened to La Rondine.

Said Patron Kahn: "I travel 2,000 miles a year just to spend an evening at Ravinia. I return to New York refreshed. . ."

Patron Eckstein: "I never dreamed Otto Kahn would come here. . . . He came for the first time nine years ago and never missed a season since."
