Michael Kelly in Drury Lane - 25 November, 1813

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, page 275:

On the 25th November, 1813, was produced at Drury Lane, a musical piece, written 
by Mr. Arnold, called "Illusion." The subject was taken from the popular tale of
"Nourjahad," written by Mr. Sheridan's mother, the authoress of "Sidney Biddulph,"
&c. I composed the music; it was received with great applause.
