"The wife of the famous Belgian author and 1 dramatist has been of great assistance to her husband in his stage work, for, as Georgette Leblanc, she has earned world-wide fame as an opera singer and actress. She has played leading parts in many of her husband's plays, and has the greatest admiration for his brilliant work. She it was who, at the old abbey of St. Wandrille, Normandy, the home of the Maeterlincks, produced realistic performances of "Macbeth" to a select and distinguished audience, who moved from room to room as the scenes were enacted, just as they might have been at Macbeth's castle. She has also added to the charm of that delightful play which has captivated London, " The Blue Bird," by arranging an entirely new scene for it which shows the " Land of Happiness." In addition, she invented an original method of rendering her husband's poems. Dressed in scarlet, she sits in an old, high-backed chair in front of a large mirror, while the audience listen to her weird songs and watch her reflection in the glass.
