     Mostly about 04/04/66 evening performance of Lucrezia Borgia.

     “Academy of Music.—‘Lucrezia Borgia’ was given here last night to a poor house—the result probably of the fine attendance which was drawn to the Academy in the morning, when ‘Crispino è la Comare’ was performed.”

Review: New York Post, 05 April 1866.

Brief. “Academy of Music.

     The experiment of a Wednesday matinée at the Academy was entirely successful, the house being nearly as much crowded as at the usual Saturday matinées.

     This may have been partly due to the fact that many of the ladies preferred going in the afternoon rather than in the evening, so as to save themselves for the grand Bal d’Opera last night.”
