Elegant pose of the soprano who sang with the Metropolitan Opera for 18 seasons.

Photograph by Bruno of Hollywood/New York City (imprint at lower right corner and stamped on verso. Additional stamp management agency stamp on verso, which also has pencil notes (unknown hand). 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. Lightly creased at blank margins and corners. Minor surface creases and smudges (not evident head on). Verso is lightly soiled. Overall, fine and lovely.
