Lord Aberdeen et al. in Covent Garden Theatre, London - 3 April, 1810

from Diary of Mary Berry, 3 April 1810, page 413:

Lord Aberdeen, the two ladies, and myself, went to their box at Covent Garden. The play, ‘The Beggars’ Opera,’ not only most execrably sung and acted, but the best parts cut out; but whether from carelessness or propriety I am at a loss to know.
