We dined very well at Portici... and finished the evening by going to the Teatro Nuovo for the 2nd time to hear Paisiello’s opera, where it pleased me full as much now as before and in the same places. The overture is full of comic and original passages, the airs are very pleasing and far from common. If he has any fault ‘tis in repeating passages too often even to 5 and 6 times, which is like driving a nail into a plaistered wall – the 1st 2 or 3 strokes fix it better than more - for after that number it either grows loose or recoils – this an energy is often given by reiterated strokes on the tympanum, but too often repeated they cease to make an impression and seem to obliterate those already given.
