Lady Frances Warren et al. in Naples - 18 January, 1784

from Diary of Mary Berry, 18 January 1784, page 76:

Came home after dinner and put on our bahuts, and went with Lady Warren to Princess Belmonte's box at the Florentine theatre, where an opera buffa is represented. The house is small, but gay and light, almost every box having candles in it. The opera: most pleasing music of the lively sort.
