“‘Il Trovatore’ was the opera given last night at the Winter Garden. The work still retains its interest to a large proportion of the musical community. For the critic it offers nothing new. The performance was a good one, and satisfied a fine and fashionable audience.”

Review: Courrier des √Čtats-Unis, 17 December 1866.

“The success in Trovatore, Friday evening, belonged without dispute to Mme Natali Testa, who is the most beautiful Azucena who was ever produced in New York. Mlle Poch also had some beautiful moments, as did M. Bellini. The scene of the Miserere, as always, was very effective.”
