Alexander Mackenzie in Covent Garden - 1865

from A Musician's Narrative , page 51:

Opera in English kept fighting gallantly for existence, although in '65 it became acquainted with strange bedfellows: Faust and a pantomime The Lion and the Unicorn; Satanella, alternating with Gounod's Mock Doctor, preceded Cinderella at Her Majesty's.
