JAMES EUGENE McCRACKEN

The famous tenor is shown performing in character as “Otello”, signed in black felt tip

Photograph Signed: “ 'Otello' James McCracken” in black felt tip. 8¼x10. James Eugene McCracken (1926-1988, born in Gary, Indiana) was an American tenor who performed at the New York City Metropolitan Opera for 25 years. McCracken began studying opera seriously after serving in the U. S. Navy during World War II. He debuted at the Central City Opera in Denver, Colorado as Rodolfo in Puccini's La Bohème in 1952. McCracken's Met debut was in the same opera a year later as Parpignol and debuted in Europe at the Vienna State Opera in 1957. He became a star in the early 1960's, when the Washington, DC Opera Society gave him the title role in Verdi's Otello. After touring Europe in this role, he returned to the Met in 1963. McCracken left the Met in 1978, but returned for its centennial in 1983. He remained at the Met until his health forced him to retire during the 1987-1988 season, shortly before his death. Corners slightly rounded. Lightly creased. Pencil notations on verso (unknown hand). Signature slightly smeared. Otherwise, fine condition.
