Sophie Augustine Leo in Paris - 1820

from Musical Life in Paris (1817-1848): A Chapter from the Memoirs of Sophie Augustine Leo--Part I, page 270:

Garcia's Don Giovanni, Fodor's Contessa (in Figaro) were gratifications that may be mentioned in retrospect; to describe them would be impossible. Nor, for that matter, could one do justice to Pasta's classic beauty, to her taste in matters artistic, to her characterization of solemn resignation in Zingarelli's "Ombra adorata."
