Caricature signed: "Enrico Caruso/Joliet/1908", 6x9¼. Legendary operatic tenor Enrico Caruso (1873-1921) often appeared in performances at the Royal Opera House in Berlin. Caruso, 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. When Caruso, who was known for his warmth as for his voice, was not singing, enjoyed sketching caricatures of himself and his acquaintances. Slightly creased. Folds, light horizontal fold at the "ar" of Caruso and the "i" of Joliet. Upper left and right blank corners missing. 2 stray ink marks at blank areas. Collector's address in ink on verso (no show through).
