AMELITA GALLI-CURCI
Short ALS on a postcard
Autograph Letter signed: "Amelita Galli-Curci", 5½x3¼ postcard. Postmarked Rancho Santa Fe, Arizona, and dated by her 1960 September 28. Addressed on verso (unknown hand). To "Dear Robert Lloyd", in full: "I thank you for your very kind card and send to you my very best wishes. Sincerely".Amelita Galli-Curci (1882-1963), a coloratura soprano, made here operatic debut in her native Italy in 1906, in Verdi's Rigoletto. From 1908 to 1920 she was married to the Marchese Luigi Curci, adding his name to hers. Galli-Curci visited the US for the first time in 1916, intending a brief stay. She proved so popular that she joined the company of the Chicago Opera (1916-1921) and then the Metropolitan until 1929, making her permanent home in the US. Convinced that opera was a dying art form, she quit opera stages in 1930 to focus on concerts and recordings. Signature and letter light with mailing stamps throughout (still legible). toned with edges lightly creased. Pencil note (unknown hand) and mailing stamps on verso.
