Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Wm. Temple/Feldmannm/Cordially/Boris Christoff/1956". B/w, 5x7. Photo: Walton Bird. A choir boy in his native Bulgaria, Christoff (1914-1993) left a successful career as a lawyer to study opera in Italy, where he reached stardom in the late 1940s. Until 1956, Christoff was denied entry into the US because his homeland had a communist regime, even while Bulgaria was refusing him permission to return home. A powerful performer on stage, Christoff carried on some well publicized disputes with other opera figures, including Maria Callas and Herbert von Karajan. Corners lightly worn and creased. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
