Margaret Mercer Elphinstone et al. in Paris - 17 January, 1820, at night

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 17 January 1820, page 99:

In the evening Madame de Flahault called to take me to the Opera (theatres being an exception to my vow against going out). The opera “Tarare;” the dancing scene in it quite beautiful.
