Baroque opera performance times

I have no idea how to go about searching for this... Various combinations of baroque, opera, theater, and performance only give me information on baroque performance techniques and styles and such.

What I'm trying to find is what time of day operas were usually performed during the early 1700's (Italy, if it makes any difference). Were they usually in the evening, after dinner, like they are nowadays? Or were they mostly in the morning, or afternoon, or at whatever time people felt like it?
