Visits from the Seguin Opera Company were a delight to me. The performances were up to a very creditable standard, the singing being in English of course. The list included most of the operas by Balfe, Wallace, Donizetti, Bellini, Auber, Adam, and Boieldieu; such as Masaniello, Fra Diavolo, Crown Diamonds, La Bayadere, La Sonnambula, The Stranger, Norma, The Pirate, I Puritani, Lucrezia, Lucia, The Daughter of the Regiment, and La Dame Blanche. The only operas with a comic admixture were The Barber and the Elixir of Love.

[...]

Mrs. Seguin, the leading soprano, was a genuine musician, a worthy sample of the good all-round artist that comes only from England.
