Hermann Klein in Opera-Comique, Paris - 1886

from Thirty Years of Musical Life in London, 1870-1900, page 260:

Autres temps , autres moeurs! During the "eighties" a distinct change of attitude began to manifest itself in Paris toward "Romeo et Juliette."  I recollect a performance at the Opera-Comique  in 1886, with Talazac and Adele Isaac, that delighted not only myself but a crowded and demonstrative house.
