Nay, upon the sudden announcement of an inopportune "indisposition" on the part of Madame Grisi, only a few minutes before the commencement of the opera, and actually after the doors were opened, she rendered good service to the management by undertaking the part of Norma at so short a notice. The audience assembled on the occasion testified its sense of her good will by an unexpected reception and lavish plaudits throughout the whole evening; and Madame Rossi Caccia, although not to be cited as a thoroughly successful artist, retired from the boards of Her Majesty's Theatre, after a performance honoured by sufficiently flattering applause.
