Bunny came from the Haymarket Opera, and supped with me comfortably. They have Farinelli, Merighi, with no sound in her voice, but thundering action — a beauty with no other merit ; and one Chimenti, a tolerable good woman with a pretty voice, and Montagnana, who roars as usual! With this band of singers, and dull Italian operas, such as you almost fall asleep at, they presume to rival Handel — who has Strada, that sings better than ever she did; Gizziello, who is much improved since last year; and Annibali who has the best part of Senesino's voice and Caristini's, with a prodigious fine taste and good action ! We have had Alcina, and Atalanta, which is acted tonight for the last night with the fireworks, and I go to it with Mrs. Wingfield. Next Wednesday is Ponis and Annibali sings Senesino's part. Mr. Handel has two new operas ready — Erminius and Justino. He was here two or three mornings ago and played to me both the overtures, which are charming.
