ROSA PONSELLE
Shown on stage in ruffled gown but an unlikely operatic pose, seated and holding a cigarette
Photograph signed: "Sincerely/Rosa Ponselle". B/w, 7¾x10. Ponselle (1897-1981) began her stage career in vaudeville, in a musical act with her sisters. An agent introduced her to Enrico Caruso, who was so impressed with her voice that he secured for her a Metropolitan Opera debut (with Caruso himself in La Forza del Destino). The soprano sang with the Met until 1936, venturing overseas only to London's Covent Gardens and to one performance in Florence (fulfilling a promise to her Italian-born mother.) Ponselle stopped performing after her 1936 marriage. But after her divorce in 1949, she returned to public life as a booster of the Baltimore Civic Opera and a voice coach, tutoring Beverly Sills and Placido Domingo, among others. Although she never returned to the stage, RCA Victor came to her Baltimore home to record many of her songs in 1954. Toned. Adhesive tape at corners. Signature in poor contrast and beaded (lightly legible). Otherwise, fine condition.
