ENRICO CARUSO
Enrico Caruso handwrote, dated and signed this postcard to a Miss Carmen Hesse from Bremen in 1908, complaining of "a very disagreeable trip" and the city's weather.
Autograph note signed: "Enrico Caruso", 5½x3½. Bremen, Germany, 1908 October 9. Color illustration, possibly a hand-colored photo, on verso of a statue to Kaiser Wilhelm. Addressed to "Miss Carmen Hesse". In Italian, translated. In full: "Here I am in Bremen after a very long and very disagreeable trip. The city is full of fog and I cannot wait for the time to leave. To papa and to your grandmother also your brother and little sister and to you all my sincere wishes". Enrico Caruso (1873-1921), who began his singing career in 1894 (L' Amico Francesco, Naples), made his Milan La Scala debut in 1900, his London Covent Garden debut in 1902 and his New York Metropolitan Opera debut in 1903 (marking the company's grand opening). During his 17 years with the Met, Caruso sang 36 different roles in 607 performances (public favorites included Rigoletto, Carmen and Aida). Caruso was the first leading performer to record. Lightly toned, otherwise, fine condition.
