PAULINE LUCCA, BARONESS OF RHADEN
The Austrian soprano signs as the Baroness of Rhaden (from her first marriage) while in Berlin, dated 1869
Printed card signed: "Baroness of Rhaden/(Pauline Lucca)/Berlin 30.12.69", in black ink, 5x2¾. Operatic soprano Pauline Lucca (1841-1908) showed a natural skill for singing as a young child, joining the Vienna State Opera in 1856 at age 15. She debuted in 1859 as Elvira in Emani, soon after performing for a number of years in Prague before being picked up for a stay with the Berline State Opera. Lucca was quite popular in her European performances, but due to a feud with fellow soprano Mathilde Mallinger, slowly began falling from favor and was often booed during her performances. She then began touring the United States where she was well received, and finally finished her career again with the Vienna State Opera. The soprano was married twice: first to the Prussian Baron Adolphe Von Rhaden (whom she divorced in the United States), and later to Baron von Wallhoffen. Lightly toned. Corners slightly worn and creased. Faint stains across. Otherwise, fine condition.
