Chopin in London - June, 1848

from Selected Correspondance of Fryderyck Chopin, pages 318-319:

I have seen Mme Viardot again very charming here in London. She was so gracious as to sing my Mazurkas at a concert held in her theatre [Covent Garden] without my asking. So far she has only sung in Sonnambula they are now going to put on the Barber and I Capuleti [ed I Monteahi].
