Peter Hawker in London, England - 7 May, 1835
from Journal entry, 7 May 1835, page 72:
The best performed opera I ever saw. We were taken to the box of Grisi, whose acting surpassed even Pasta. The opera was ‘Otello,’ and her Desdemona was perfect. Rubini, Tamburini, Lablache, and Ivanhof were never greater than this night; nor did I ever hear the orchestra go to such true perfection. I seldom notice town spectacles, but this was one in a thousand.
