This painting is from the estate of Everett Lloyd Bryant.  The stretcher bore no title. Bryant painted a number of such scenes –

at balls, the ballet, costume parties.  Each bore a quite simple name.  As such, we are taking the liberty of naming this painting simply,

 as he might have : “AT THE OPERA”.

We do not know which performance, and should someone be more versed in both opera and operetta,

we would appreciate any information that might help us to tie this down more specifically. 

The backdrop setting seems to represent a Mediterranean grotto.
