Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Sr. Dante Pilara/yours in music/Sincerely/Astrid Varnay/1946". B/w, 6¾x9. Astrid Varnay (1918-2006), born in Sweden to Hungarian parents who were themselves opera singers, performed mostly in Germany and the United States. She made her professional debut at the Met on December 6, 1941, and last performed there in 1995, forty-five years later! A dramatic soprano, Varnay excelled in heroic Wagnerian roles. She performed for 17 years at the Bayreuth Festival. Later in her career, she shifted to mezzo-soprano character roles. Heavy show through from mounting on verso. Lightly worn at corners and edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
