PC Consignment. Thérèse Carolina Johanne Alexandra Tietjens (17 July 1831, Hamburg - 3 October 1877, London) was a leading opera and oratorio soprano. She made her career chiefly in London during the 1860s and 1870s, but her sequence of musical triumphs in the British capital was terminated by cancer. During her prime, her powerful yet agile voice was said to span seamlessly a range of three octaves. Many opera historians consider her to have been the finest dramatic soprano of the second half of the 19th century. [Wikipedia] George K. Warren, 1824-1884, Warren became a significant celebrity photographer after moving his studio to Boston in 1870. He opened a general portrait studio in Boston located at 145 Tremont Street, supervised by Sumner B. Heald (1835-1900). Heald oversaw the performing arts portraiture that appeared under the Warren brand. [broadway.cas.sc.edu]. FP New Rockville Stock. (Inventory #: 15-480-1313713)
