Harriett St John-Mildmay et al. in Paris - between 8 July, 1822 and 9 July, 1822
from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, page 361:
8th. […] [W]ent to see an act of “Ferdinand Cortez” at the Opera. Found a note on my return from Lady Mildmay, saying that the “Tancredi” is to be to-morrow, and reminding me that I was to dine and go with them.
9th. Not the “Tancredi,” but resolved to go. Dined with the Mildmays: opera, “Romeo.” They may talk of the profanation of turning Shakspeare’s [sic] stories into operas, but Pasta’s Romeo and Desdemona are to me as touching as the poet’s.
