Michael Kelly in Drury Lane - April, 1806

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, pages 212-213:

I composed the music to the splendid spectacle of "The Forty Thieves," produced 
at Drury Lane, in April 1806, which had a very great run. Miss Decamp acted,
sang, and danced, in the character of Morgiana, with wonderful effect.
