Westminster School - scene from 'The Andria' of Terence, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Westminster School - scene from "The Andria" of Terence, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Westminster School - scene from "The Andria" of Terence, 1845. Public school production of an ancient Roman comedy, Act IV, Scene 11: Of the costume...we must speak in the highest terms. All was Greek, and correct. The young Pamphilus wore his chlamys with the grace of an Antinous; while old Simo draped his pallium decorously and classically. The acting was hardly up to the average. We may except the Davus of Mr. Milman, which was roguish and significant enough...the enunciation was as distinct, the parts as perfectly committed to memory as ever...The Epilogue, with its allusions to the railway mania, was taken by the audience in every point...It is curious to see the old fashion of Latin play-acting survive in our own matter-of-fact times, when even the hallowed practice of Latin annotations to editions of the classics has almost disappeared'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Scene from 'Harlequin Crotchet and Quaver', at Covent Garden Theatre, 1844 Featured Print

Scene from "Harlequin Crotchet and Quaver", at Covent Garden Theatre, 1844

Scene from "Harlequin Crotchet and Quaver", at Covent Garden Theatre, 1844. London stage production of a new comic pantomime by Mr. Nelson Lee...called "Harlequin Crotchet and Quaver, or Music for the Million"...which, despite ...feats upon the corde volante...had the fault of being too long. It wants cutting...and there were not many of those jokes and allusions which the public are now accustomed to expect in a piece of this kind. The scenery "hitched" several several times, but this is excusable on a first representation...Mr. T. Blanchard was very good; and Miss Massall is an attractive young lady, with a nice figure, and an excellent dancer. The scenery is beautifully painted; and a mazurka, which must become very popular, composed by M. Jules de Glimes, was played with great spirit and effect by the band'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V
