a London opera audience et al. in London, England - 23 April, 1822

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, pages 345–346:

Left […] early for the Opera. The house splendid; most of the women in their drawing-room dresses, and the general rising to “God save the King” most striking. What a contrast to the canaille-looking audiences of Paris.
