Richard Edgcumbe in Prague - in the beginning of the 1780's

from Musical Reminiscences: Containing an Account of Italian Opera in England, From 1773. The Fourth Edition, Continued to the Present Time, and Including The Festival in Westminster Abbey., page 31:

In passing through Prague, I heard an opera performed by singers almost below mediocrity, but the opera itself was so delightful that it could not but give pleasure. It was Le Nozze di Dorina; or, Frà due litigani il terzo gode, the chef-d’oeuvre of Sarti in the buffo, as Giulio Sabino is in the serious style.
