William Beatty-Kingston in Berlin - the 1860's

from Music and manners; personal reminiscences and sketches of character, page 61:

Again, when [Frau] Mallinger made her appearance on the stage [of the Berlin Hofoper], she would be saluted with a storm of hisses and whistlings by a packed house of [Frau Pauline] Lucca enthusiasts, every man Jack of whom was so fired by the conviction that his idol was the most fascinating, soul-subduing songstress and actress in creation that he found himself unable to tolerate the presence of any other prima donna upon the Hofoper boards
