Photograph signed: "Best Wishes/Marta Eggerth/1957". B/w, 3½x5½, mounted to 5x7½ on plain cardboard. Marta Eggerth, born in Budapest (1912-2013), is a star of opera, operetta, and films in 4 languages: German, Italian, French, and 2 films in English (For Me and My Gal, 1942; Presenting Lily Mars, 1943). She performed in her first operetta at age 11, and performed Die Fledermaus at age 17, already able to sing the most difficult parts. In 1936 she married Polish tenor Jan Kiepura, and the couple often performed together to great acclaim until his untimely death 30 years later. They were especially noted for their over 200 joint performances of The Merry Widow. Eggerth has continued giving concert performances into the new century, and recorded a 2-volume retrospective CD, My Life My Song (2003). A staunch advocate of operetta, Eggerth has said, "In opera everybody dies; in operetta everybody is flirtatious." Severe creases. Soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
