She subsequently reveals that she was once an operatic favorite, had been cast aside when her voice gave out, and had lately been restored to the appearance of youth by a surgeon so that she might return to society and again bask in its acclaim. Bobby tells Elizabeth of his love, while Lady Sylvia finds solace in the arms of her ...
