Coloratura soprano Talley (1906-1983) made her operatic debut with New York's Metropolitan in Rigoletto (1926). In the audience were many residents of her home town, Nevada, Missouri, who had traveled east by rail to hear her. At age 19, Talley was the youngest principal female performer in the Met's history. After performing on that stage for four seasons, Talley announced her desire to retire to the farm she owned in Kansas, but drove her Stutz Bearcat to California instead. There she starred in one film, the musical Follow Your Heart (1936). After a divorce and bitter child custody battle, she withdrew from the public eye. Some of her voice recordings have been reissued on the album The Vocal Artistry of Marion Talley. Lightly toned, silvered and bowed. Paper loss on verso. Otherwise in fine condition.
