She Stoops to Conquer, or the Mistakes of a Night

Evidence

‘In all my travels and visits I saw little of the theatre or concert room, and some of the candid confessions of Mrs Oliphant might stand for my own. I had read so many plays before I saw one that the unreality of much of the acted drama impressed me unfavourably ... As Mrs Oliphant did not identify the “nobody in white tights” who rendered from “Twelfth Night” the lovely lines beginning “That strain again: it had a dying fall” with the Orsino she had imagined when reading the play, so I, who knew “She Stoops to Conquer” almost by heart, was disappointed when I saw it on the stage.’
