Unnamed Japanese spectator in Covent Garden - July, 1905

from Memories of a Musician: Reminiscences of Seventy years of Musical Life, pages 322-3:

Apropos of her (Luisa Tetrazzini's) assumption of the part of Madama Butterfly, when it was first performed at Covent Garden, I heard a Japanese gentleman remark that it was the only truthful presentment of Japanese life on the stage that he had seen since he came to Europe.
