] Does any one know how people showed their appreciation of a performance in a smaller, private gathering such as in a person's home at a dinner party? In England, do people give standing ovations? Would they have during the Regency? Would they at a smaller gathering as I mentioned above? Thanks! EL
Applause would be enough, in a small space a standing-O would be looked upon as ostantaeous (sp?). We don't go that far even today.
