Notes
Caricature of a scene from Onorati's ballet Alonso e Cora, premiered at the King's Opera House, Haymarket, on April 2, 1796.
Charles Didelot dances between two women, both lightly clad in quasi-classical costumes. He wears a feathered hat, cloak, striped doublet and breeches, and looks toward Mme. Parisot (r.); she is in attitude, her right breast bared. Mme. Rose (l.), Didelot's first wife, also in attitude, her sharp-featured profile turned austerely toward her husband.
