Gustavus III et al. in Rome - 29 December, 1783, at night
from Diary of Mary Berry, 29 December 1783, page 65:
In the evening, the Opera Aliberti. Theatre much ornamented, and cleaner than most Italian theatres; the scenery excellent. Had I not before known that no women are admitted upon the stage in Rome, I should not perhaps have found it out; the men who act there are so well dressed, and made up with red and white, and are so much less awkward than might be expected; the danseuses detestable. King of Sweden sat above half an hour in our box.
