Wilhelm Ganz in Her Majesty's Theatre - 1851
In the Exhibition year of 1851 performances were given almost every evening at Her Majesty's, while in previous seasons only three performances a week used to be announced, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. One of the new operas performed was Auber's Enfant Prodigue, in which the Parisian prima donna, Madame Ugalde, sang most charmingly, and M. Massol, the French baritone, also took a leading part. The scenery and dresses were magnificent, and, in fact, the opera was sumptuously mounted. I played the little bells in the orchestra, to imitate the bells of the camels in the Desert Scene.
