MARIO ANCONA
Autograph Quotation signed in Boston in February 1914: "Critic is easy to do, but singing well is rather difficult."
Autograph Quotation signed: "Critic is easy to do/but singing well is rather/difficult/Mario Ancona/Boston 26/2/1914", 3x1½ card. Italian operatic baritone Mario Ancona (1860-1931) made his professional debut in 1889, performing two operas of Massenet. He was the first to perform the role of Silvio in Leoncavallo's Pagliacci in 1892. Ever popular at Covent Garden, where his physical resemblance to King Edward VII was noted, Ancona sang at the Metropolitan and at its rival, the Manhattan Opera Company, in the 1890s. He retired from the stage in 1916, devoting himself to teaching. Several of his recordings of the French and Italian repertoire have survived from 1907-1908, and are now available on CD. Lightly toned. Otherwise fine condition.
