Her Majesty's Theatre, then, opened on the 15th of March, with Alboni, now in the height of her popularity, as Cenerentola. The success of this great singer was necessarily triumphant; and the season, in appearance at all events, could not have commenced under happier auspices. The public is a child in many respects— in many respects, too, a spoiled child, a very spoiled child. It cried still for its favourite toy — Jenny Lind. However brilliant the new toy placed before it for its delectation and amusement, it would not take to it as, under other circumstances, it might have done. The favourite image and idol of the last two years was ever in its thoughts. However eminently successful as was the debut of Mademoiselle Alboni at Her Majesty's Theatre, it hardly carried with it that prestige to which it was fairly entitled.
