In the evening went to the Opera; in a box au premier, containing six places, for which we paid the enormous price of 57 livres. […]

 

This theatre, built in the Rue Richelieu, is new and handsome. It has three rows of boxes, and some near the stage, for the people of the theatre. The ornaments are all in pale browns, and bronze, and gold, not very gay. The lustre or circle of Argand lamps by which it is lighted, in perfect taste. The pieces given were ‘Anacréon’ with a long dance introduced; and, at the end, ‘Télémaque.’ Laÿs, the first man of the opera, who was Anacreon, has a very fine voice, and the music very pretty, and they were all perfectly well dressed à I’antique. The head of Anacreon was perfect: but a French opera is always a dull thing.
