Review: New-York Times, 17 December 1866, 4.

“There was a fair attendance at Saturday’s matinée at the Winter Garden, when ‘Fra Diavolo’ was given under the direction of Mr. Carl Bergmann. The performance was unusually spirited and passed off to the entire satisfaction of those present. Signor Ronconi’s Englishman is a study, tempered by good-will, and colored by an irresistible feeling for caricature. It keeps the house in a roar.”

Review: Courrier des États-Unis, 17 December 1866.

“Saturday, at the matinee, we found Mme Natali Testa again, always charming, in a role quite different from the one she had played the previous evening. Mlle Kellogg, as Zerlina in Fra Diavolo, displays the exact qualities for which we know her.”
