No Song, No Supper
The piece was first given as a part of a benefit evening for Michael Kelly. He took the role of Frederick, with Nancy Storace taking the role of Margaretta, a role which she was also to sing at her farewell performance in 1808. The flimsy plot involves Margaretta, disguised as a ballad singer, revealing the machinations of a wicked lawyer, whose exposure and departure allows the reunion of two pairs of lovers.
