“Sangalli, of ‘Black Crook’ renown, and whose portrait is given on our first page, is the reigning favorite with the frequenters of Niblo’s. She has supplanted Bonfanti and all othe premier dancers of the Parisian troupe, and is nightly encored in one of her most difficult Terpsichorean displays; to demand a repetition of this extraordinary effort is cruel, to say the least; we think that the lady’s acknowledgment of the applause by a curtsey should be sufficient.”
