Elizabeth (Bessy) Moore et al. in Théâtre Feydeau, Paris - 6 February, 1821

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 6 February 1821, page 197:

Dined with the Storys at Véry’s (Bessy of the party) and went to Feydeau to see the opera of “Joseph” by Mehul [sic]. Some operas do not do at this theatre; the French are as unfit for the heroic in music as in poetry; the light, common style is their element in both.
