CLAUDIA MUZIO. Photograph inscribed and signed: "For/Isabel/in remembrance/Claudia Muzio/1925" in Italian. Sepia, 7¾x9¾. Italian soprano Claudia Muzio (1889-1936) was known for her impressive stage presence and emotional involvement in all the leading Verdi and Puccini roles, including Tosca, Cio-Cio-San (in Madama Butterfly) and Giorgetta. In addition to being a popular performer at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City for seven seasons (she had made her debut there in Tosca), Muzio was much in demand in the principal South American opera houses. She also performed extensively in Italy, making notable appearances under Toscannini at La Scala in 1926-1927, before singing mostly thereafter in Rome. Muzio's unique voice could also be heard on early (1917-1918) Pathé and Edison (1920-1925) recordings as well as later Columbia recordings (1934-1935). Creased at blank corners and margins. Surface creases and scratches (not at facial image). "Silvered" at hair and background. Lightly soiled at blank margins. Overall, fine condition.
