Review: New-York Daily Tribune, 04 July 1865, 5.

     No mention of the music.  Includes a description of the original French play and a discussion on the art of translation.  “Last evening Miss Kate Reignolds commenced an engagement at this theater, and, in spite of obvious disadvantages and drawbacks, secured a good success.  She appeared in ‘The Angel of Midnight,’ one of the most remarkable and interesting of modern French dramas, but one which has never attracted much attention upon the American stage. . . .”
