Richard Edgcumbe in Teatro di San Carlo - at the end of 1784

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 39:

 

 

At length I had the good fortune to hear a thorough good opera at Naples, where the principal singers at the theatre of San Carlo were Pozzi, first woman, Rubinelli, first man, and David, tenor, all excellent in their respective lines; but I shall not enter on their merits here, as I shall have a future opportunity of doing so.
