Michael Kelly in London - the 1800's

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, page 207:

The "Orazj," or, "Gli Orazj ed i Curiazj," was got up for Grassini with all care 
and attention: the music (the finest serious opera Cimarosa ever produced) was
delightful, and drew crowded houses to the King's Theatre, as it did at Venice,
where it had been originally produced. In my opinion, the acting of Grassini in
this opera was almost as fine as Mrs. Siddons" : higher praise she could not wish for ; the passage, where she exclaimed, "O, Orazio, mio bene," leaning over
her dead husband, was positively heart-rending.
