Hermann Klein in Covent Garden - 1894

from Thirty Years of Musical Life in London, 1870-1900, page 400:

“L'Attaque du Moulin” won a more genuine artistic success, even if it did not secure a permanent place in the repertory, and an ineffaceable impression was made by the gifted mezzo-soprano, Mile. Delna, who then appeared here for the first time. Her Marcelline was a superb creation; and Bouvet's embodiment  of the kind-hearted old miller, Pere Merlier was  also extremely fine. The performance, directed by Philippe Flon, was of astonishing excellence. M. Bruneau assured me he found it equal in every respect to that at the Opera-Comique
