ROSE BAMPTON
The American soprano sends her autograph on the verso of a penny postal card.
Autograph Sentiment signed: "Cordially/Rose Bampton/March 1942" on verso of postal card, 5½x3¼. 1-cent imprinted Martha Washington postal card, postmarked New York, New York, March 16, 1942. Addressed in unknown hand to a collector in Ardmore, Oklahoma. Name written (unknown hand) in pencil on signature side. Rose Bampton (1907-2007) was an American operatic contralto who made her debut as Siébel in Gounod's Faust at the Chautaugua Opera in 1929. She sang several times with Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra, bringing her to the attention of New York's Metropolitan Opera. In addition to singing for 18 seasons (1932-1950) with the Met, Bampton appeared with companies in Chicago, San Francisco and Buenos Aires, and she sang regularly with the New York Philharmonic and other orchestras. Bampton, whose repertory included Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, Alceste and several Wagnerian roles, also made a number of recordings. Bampton was married to Wilfrid Pelletier, a Conductor at the Met and the first Music Director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, from 1937 until his death in 1982. Slightly creased and soiled. Light stain at the upper loop of the "C" and postal impressions at the second "l" and the "y" of Cordially. Shaded at lower margin of verso, which has mounting remnants at left margin (no show through). Overall, fine condition.
