Event Comment: By Particular Desire of several Ladies of Quality. Positively the last Night. [Intended as satire on the Reverend John Henley's Oratory (eccentric preacher, 1692-1756) and as a puff for The Midwife or Old Woman's Magazine, edited by Christopher Smart and John Newberry, 1751-53. The Old Woman's Oratory written and produced by Smart. See the Gentleman's Magazine, 1752, p. 43; and Horace Walpole's letter to Montagu 12 May 1752, as follows: It appeared the lowest buffoonery in the world, even to me who am used to my uncle Horace. There is a bad oration to ridicule, what is too like, Orator Henley; all the rest is perverted music. There is a man who plays so nimbly on the kettle drums, that he has reduced that noisy instrument to be an object of sight; for if you don't see the tricks with his hands, it is no better than ordinary. Another play on a violin and trumpet together; another mimics a bagpipe with a German flute, and makes it full if disagreeable. There is an admired dulcimer, a favourite saltbox and a really curious Jew's Harp. Two or three men intend to persuade you that they play on a broomstick, which is drolly brought in, carefully shrouded in a case, so as to be mistaken for a bassoon or bass viol, but they succeed in nothing but the action. The last fellow imitates farting and curtseying to a French horn. There are twenty medley overtures, and a man who speaks a prologue and epilogue, in which he counterfeits all the actors and singers upon earth' (The Yale Edition of Horace Walpole's Correspondence, IX, p. 131). [See 3 Dec. 1751.

Afterpiece Title: Joan of Arc

Performance Comment: As17980214, but The Argument-. [The Ballet (principally taken from Historical facts) commences with a Grand Battle before the Town of Orleans, in which the English being victorious, a wounded French Officer (Alenson) solicits shelter in the Inn where Joan of Arc and her sister Blanche reside; this is granted, and they scarcely retire, before the conquering party rush into the Inn, but are prevented from using outrage by the intervention of a young English General (Talbot) of whom the sisters become enamoured. He prefers Blanche; and Joan, from resentment, in conjunction with Alenson, meditate his ruin, in which they fail, and are forced to fly--Joan grown desperate, invokes supernatural aid, and receives a Banner from Lucifer--distinguishes the French King in the midst of his Courtiers, tho' a Nobleman in his habit had been imposed on her for him--demands a consecrated sword and shield at the tomb of Charlemagne--heads the French troops, and being victorious, takes young Talbot and her sister (whom he had espoused) Prisoners. +Edwin (young Talbot's Page), not allowed to attend on his master, by concealing himself in the spoils of his tent is conveyed to the court-yard of his Prison, thro' the grating of which he gives him a sleeping draught, telling him on drinking it that they will suppose him dead, and the English demand his body. He complies, but the request of the English is refused, and he lowered into the Cell where Blanche is confined--She conceives him dead--despairing, is on the point of destroying herself, when he awakes--the Page from the top of the Cell points out the means of escape, which they are accomplishing, when Joan rushes in, but appalled at the ghost-like appearance of Talbot, whom she conceived dead, permits them to glide by, but pursues them--excursions with the enemy--Joan kills Talbot's Father, and forces him to combat-disdaining the threats of a woman, he throws away his sword, acting only on the defensive--disarms her--she rushes on him, when her supernatural power failing, her sword and shield break to pieces-she snatches her banner, which takes fire--grown desperate, seizes a sword and attempts to stab him, is prevented by British soldiers who surround and vanquish her--Young Talbot at the same time killing Alenson--her life is preserved by the intercession of Blanche--the British are victorious, she rushes off, again solicits supernatural aid--is surrounded by Daemons but saved by the interposition of an Aerial Spirit--Blanche and Talbot are rendered happy, and the whole concludes with a Grand Historical Pageant (as17980214)] . .
