Caricature by Alfred Bryan, The Entr’acte, 8 June 1895.  Adelina Patti had not sung in opera at Covent Garden for ten years when Harris invited her to sing in his 1895 season.  These were her farewell performances on the operatic stage. She sang La Traviata, Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Don Giovanni with two performances of each opera.
