The season of 1824 produced an unusually large compnayt of singers [...] The finest of these was [Madame Colbrun Rosini, was] long esteemed the finest in Italy, both as singer and actress. She is now married to Rossini, with whom she came hither, both being engaged on high terms, she to sing, and he to compose; but both disappointed expectation. She is entirely passée, and her powers are so diminished that she is unable to produce any effect on the stage, where she gave little satisfaction: but her taste was acknowledged to be excellent, and she was much admired in private concerts. She appeared in her husband’s opera of Zelmira, which was not liked. It contains, as I was told, some of his noisiest pieces, of which I subsequently heard one at a concert; it was stunning.
