Michael Kelly in Drury Lane - 1791
from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, page 3:
This season, the Abbé Casti's " Grotta di Trofonio" was translated, or rather adapted for the English stage, under the title of "The Cave of Trophonius," by Prince Hoare, and liberally given by the author to Mrs. Crouch for her benefit. Storace furnished the music, chiefly selected from the original composer, Salieri ; but, though skilfully dramatized, and the whole strength of the Drury operatic company in it, it did not meet with the reception which I think it deserved.
