Thomas Moore in Siena - 24 October, 1819, at night

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 24 October 1819, page 45:

At half-past eight left Schneider’s: arrived at Sienna [sic] about five: after dinner went to the Opera; one of Rossini’s, who appears to me full of trickery in his music; the singers detestable.
