Eugene Ascherberg et al. in Teatro della Pergola - November, 1892

from Memories of a Musician: Reminiscences of Seventy years of Musical Life, pages 238-9:

I am sorry to say that I Rantzau was a failure, notwithstanding the thunderous applause the audience bestowed upon the composer and the singers. Mascagni was recalled twenty or thirty times. Entre nous, I suppose the claque had something to do with it. The ladies in the audience were presented with fans made of fancy straw, each one having a photograph of Mascagni and some roses attached to it.
