Elizabeth (Bessy) Moore et al. in Paris - 21 November, 1820, at night

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 21 November 1820, page 171:

Came back for Bessy at five, and both went to dine with the Villamils, who had taken a box for the new opera of Rossini in the evening. The Spanish Consul (to London) and his wife at dinner. The opera wretched (“Torvaldo and Dorliska,” I believe it is called); all bits and scraps out of the rest of this rather over-rated author’s works.
