Comments

An opera in part based on Marmontel's Tale of the Coralie, with music by James Hook (1746-1827). A note on the front free endpaper in a learned bookseller's hand attributes the authorship to Harriet Horncastle Hook, the wife of James Hook. She is the acknowledged anonymous author of two other plays James Hook was involved with, The Double Disguise and the Irish Lad (both 1784).
