Sophie Augustine Leo in Paris - early 19th Century

from Musical Life in Paris (1817-1848): A Chapter from the Memoirs of Sophie Augustine Leo--Part I, page 267:

...Le petit chaperon rouge and La dame blanche, of which I saw the premieres, were welcomed with enthusiasm by his countless admirers of both sexes. Though he had made some slight concessions to the prevailing fashion by introducing ballad stanzas and peasant rondos, the two operas last mentioned were, on the whole, in the best tradition, containing, as they did, an abundance of delightful ideas, carefully and competently elaborated.
