Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Signed 8 x 10 inch early promotional photograph of the American soprano, whose career was mostly in Europe and included some 500 performances as Carmen in such venues as La Scala, Glyndebourne Opera House and Covent Garden, not to say a bullring in Seville, Spain. Â AtÂ La Scala, she earned ovations from opera-goers and jealousy from the wives of male co-stars and the occasional female singer ("Fedora Barbieri told people that when I sang Carmen, I didn't wear any underwear"). A San Francisco critic once described her Carmen as "very animal, very unscrupulous, but fascinating; her feline grace made her the most believable Carmen that our stage has ever seen."Â This example with some in-painting to the image, heavy crazing to the surface, and rather faded inscription and signature.Â (Inventory #: 13752)
