Francis Moore et al. in Paris - 5 November, 1802, at night

from Diary of Mary Berry, 5 November 1802, page 202:

In the evening the Opera. Mr. Moore, Mr. Throckmorton, and Mr. Pigou of our party. The opera ‘Tamerlane.’ The story is Voltaire's ‘Orphelin de la Chine,’ but all French great operas are so exactly alike in their make, that it is never any matter what they are called. This opera was over unusually early. We were waiting nearly half an hour for the carriage.
