from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, page 305:
Macleod dined with me, solus cum solo; and he and Lord Dunsany accompanied me to Madame Courtin’s benefit at the Opera: “Don Juan,” from the Italians, and “Psyche.” Bigottini beautiful in “L' Amour.”

|Listening Environment||in the company of others, indoors, in public|
It is not possible to identify the music precisely from Moore's account. Madame Courtin may have been a ballerina (as was Bigottini), in which case all of the works mentioned here could have been ballets.
