The first Italian opera produced on a grand scale in St. Petersburg was Pnisiello'o Barblcre di and in the same year an Englishman named Maddox opened the first theater in Moscow. The Czarina Catharine II., who found her mania for English customs, comforts, and dependents, and for French fashions nrd philosophy, quite compatible with an ahiding love for a and unrelenting despotism, graciously extended her patronage and cave hands me pecuniary support to a company of English actors under tho management ol Mi.
