The girl had her eyes always on the orchestra, and was waiting for the opening of the world that lay behind the drop-curtain.
In these theatres there was a drop-curtain, but little or no scenery.
Under a sky as blue and amid nature poetical as a drop-curtain, one's moral nature dozes.
They had a great map on the drop-curtain and I looked at the markings that were supposed to be on the planet.
My screen and gas are set up in front of the drop-curtain, and the most delicate touches will tell anywhere.
The falling water was like a drop-curtain, swept across the stage of the open tract of sawdust.
I shall have that scene of yesterday everlastingly before my eyes, like a drop-curtain.
Since there was no drop-curtain, actors had some distance to traverse, on entrances and exits, between the doors and the front.
About noon the mist lifted and rolled away like a drop-curtain in a theater.
A shrill-voiced bell tinkled, and the drop-curtain went up, and the household of Father Barbeaud was revealed.
