Review: New York Post, 22 November 1864.
“At the opera last night Miss Kellogg as Zerlina and Susini as Leporello in “Don Giovanni,” were the leading attractions, singing and acting their respective parts with even greater effect than hitherto. Zucchi, Morensi, Lotti and Bellini were all favorably received by the limited but enthusiastic audience.”

Review: New-York Times, 22 November 1864, 5.
Very short review.  “’Don Giovanni’ was given here last night, with the success that attends the performance of that enduring work.  The principle melodies were encored, and the remained of the opera was listened to attentively, and with an evident show of pleasure.”
