The company for the three following seasons was throughout respectable, though without any very prominent talent among the male performers. Among them however may be distinguished the first tenor Curioni, who has a very sweet and pleasing voice, and is an agreeable though not a great singer; and Zucchelli, who possesses the most soft, mellow, and flexible bass voice I almost ever heard. But it was headed by two excellent first women, Ronzi de Begnis, and Camporese. The former, with a pretty face and pleasing countenance, has a voice of great sweetness and flexibility, which she manages with considerable skill and taste, is a good singer, and a good actress, both in serious and comic parts. But she decidedly excels most in the latter.
