Review: Courrier des √Čtats-Unis, 07 November 1864, 1.
“The day before yesterday, the matinée was one of the most brilliant. Mme. Carozzi-Zucchi was applauded excessively by this special audience, which, had not yet heard her. It is impossible to be more dramatic, more touching and more genuine. The public could only regret having been deprived of hearing her for a week.”

Brief review.  “Mr. Maretzek’s season terminated on Saturday. . . . There was a large and fashionable attendance, and the performance gave general satisfaction.”

Review: Dwight's Journal of Music, 12 November 1864, 344.
[Part of a longer review of multiple Maretzek performances:] “As Lucrezia and Leonora, Mme. Zucchi was less effective with the public, because more self-concentrated in her expression of these characters; still she showed herself a hinking, as well as a gifted artist.
