Richard Edgcumbe in Paris - at the end of 1802

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 87:

On my way home [from Germany], I made a short residence at Paris, where there was then an Italian comic opera, at which Lazzarini was first tenor, and the principal female singers Strinasacchi and Bolla. The former was the favourite, but she did not strike me as particularly good, and seemed a little passee.
