Sale Price $252.00
5x7 image of the Argentine tenor in costume
Photograph inscribed (in Spanish) and signed: "A Natalio Pignataro/cordialimente/P. Mirassou/1939". B/w, 5x7. Argentine opera star Pedro Mirassou (1889-1963) was originally a baritone singer, but was persuaded by Caruso that he would be even better in tenor parts. Mirassou debuted at the Teatro Colon in 1924 as Canio in Pagliacci. He followed 5 seasons in Buenos Aires with five more at Milan's La Scala. Mirassou was associated with the Italian repertoire, including performances as Radames in Aida. A surprising performance was his London debut in Napoleon: the Hundred Days (1932), an opera co-written by Mussolini! Lightly worn at corners and edges. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
