A Theatrical Rivalry

Charles Williams. Theatrical jealousy, or, the rival queens of Covent Garden. Print, 1816

Sarah Siddons (1755–1831) officially retired in 1812, but in June 1816, she returned briefly as Lady Macbeth at the request of Princess Charlotte. Siddons did not compare well with Covent Garden’s new leading lady, Eliza O’Neill (1791–1872), as this caricature makes clear. 35.
