Black and white 3½x5¼ photograph shown in costume, signed on verso
Inscribed photograph signed "To Rita Davis-/Cordially,/Johanna Meier" on verso of photo. B/w, 3½x5¼. Meier, born in 1938, is an American soprano. She is probably best known for performing Isolde in Wagner's Tristan und Isolde in 1981 in Bayreuth, Bavaria, Germany. Meier was the first American to perform this role at Bayreuth. Meier first appeared on the stage when she was only five months old as the Baby Jesus; she appeared in a passion play run by her father since 1932, a play she took over when her father retired in 1991. She made her New York City Opera debut in 1969, as the Countess in Strauss' Capriccio. Meier has appeared with the New York Metropolitan Opera 78 times between 1972 and 1989; her official debut at the Metropolitan Opera House was in 1976, as a last-minute replacement for Montserrat Caballé in Strauss' Adriane auf Naxos. She retired in 1994. Lightly toned and creased, otherwise in fine condition.
