Event Comment: [Not performed.] Last Night ththe new English Opera of Eliza was suppressed by an Order from superior Power, by which Means many Persons of Taste were deprived of a very elegant Entertainment, as it was universally acknowledg'd that this musical Performance was very extraordinary Merit, being a sensible Composition, calculated to convey the liveliest Ideas to the Fancy, and to awaken the Passions of very feeling Heart. It is said, that instigated by this Disappointment, Mr Arne will apply to P-t for a Bill to unnaturalize him, that he may then have the Privileges of an Englishman, as well as any Foreigner of them all (Gray's Inn Journal No 37, 8 June)
