Autograph musical quotation from Otello signed "G. Verdi."
by VERDI, Giuseppe 1813-1901
Otello was first performed at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan on February 5, 1887. "Though it has never reached the level of popularity of the middle-period masterpieces - something hardly surprising considering the severe vocal and orchestral demands made by the score - Otello remains one of the most universally respected of Verdi's operas, often admired even by those who find almost all his earlier works unappealing." Roger Parker in Grove Music Online.. Octavo. Dated Milan, November, 22,1890.3 bars from an Act II aria of Otello's, with text underlay "Ora e per sempre addio sante memorie et c[e]t." ("Now and forever farewell to noble memories, etc.").Slightly worn; creased, especially at folds and corners; minor remnants of former mount to upper and lower edges of verso.
