Patrice Munsel (1925-2016) was an operatic soprano who, at age 18, was the youngest singer (and, by extension, the youngest soprano) accepted at the Metropolitan Opera of New York. By the age of 27, she had starred in more than 12 roles with the Metropolitan Opera. Affectionately known as "Princess Pat", she was admired for her many talents, which include singing, ballet, tap-dancing and even rhythmic whistling. She eventually married Robert Schuler and the couple had four children. The gifted singer also made a foray into acting: She appeared as Nellie Melba in 1953's film version of Melba and with Alfred Drake in Naughty Marietta (1955). She and her husband went on to write a book about their shared experiences: The Diva and I. Lightly creased. Stray ink mark at bottom blank area. Otherwise, fine condition.
