Thomas Moore in Paris - 3 May, 1821, at night

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, page 227:

Dined […] at the Café Français, and went to the French Opera in the evening. Saw a new allegorical opera, got up in honour of the occasion,[*] called “Blanche de Provence;” the music (by Cherubini, Paer, and two others) very pretty, and the dancing delightful.


[*The celebrations for the Duc de Bordeaux’s christening]
