Review: Dwight's Journal of Music, 11 July 1863, 60.
Not a review of this specific performance but of all the performances.  “Edward Mollenhauer’s tragic opera ‘The Corsican Bride’ [was] performed some three or four times, [note: it was four times] at the close of the season, with tolerable success, the music being light, and wanting in originality, but the whole thing, despite its poor libretto, put together with a certain savoir faire, owing, no doubt, to Mr. Mollenhauer’s experience as a theatrical orchestra leader.”
