Michael Kelly in London - May, 1803

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, page 188:

Mrs. Billington was engaged this year as prima donna at the Opera House. She made 
her first appearance in the serious opera of "Ferdinand in Mexico," by Nassolini,
a charming composer ; and in the month of May, Winter composed, expressly for her,
the opera of " Calypso," the music of which she sang delightfully, and looked the
character divinely.
