Bust-length role portrait postcard photograph as Oscar in Verdi's Un ballo in maschera, signed in full
by SCIUTTI, Graziella 1927-2001
"Sciutti made her Covent Garden début as Oscar in 1956 and returned to sing Nannetta, Susanna and Despina. She made her American début at San Francisco in 1961 as Susanna. She sang regularly at Salzburg and in Vienna and also appeared in Paris in Sacha Guitry and Reynaldo Hahn's Mozart and as Polly (Die Dreigroschenoper). In 1970 she returned to Glyndebourne as Fiorilla and in 1977 she sang in her own production of La voix humaine there. Her vivacity, pointed phrasing and clear diction made her an outstanding soubrette singer. Among her recordings are her Mozart roles, Marzelline (in Maazel's Fidelio) and French song. In the 1980s she worked as a director in New York and Chicago." Harold Rosenthal and Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online.. From the studio of Fayer in Vienna. Ca. 139 x 89 mm.
