His voyage to Italy began with a brush with pirates, one of whom was a childhood acquaintance. Kelly also found himself stranded penniless in Venice, spent a night in prison after a fist fight at the theatre, and had a narrow escape from revolutionary France.

He is probably best remembered for creating the roles of Don Basilio and Don Curzio in the first performance, in 1786, of Mozarts Le Nozze di Figaro, of which he describes the rehearsal period and reception. He later joined Londons Theatre Royal as both a performer and composer and opened a music shop, which went bankrupt.

These memoirs, published in 1826, cover an extraordinary life during turbulent times but also provide rich first-hand insights into a key period in theatre history.
