THEODOR UPPMAN
Smiling image of the Met baritone, in tie and jacket.
Inscribed photograph signed: "For Joseph Shapiro/- all good wishes/from/Theodor Uppman". B/w, 8x10. American baritone Theodor Uppman (1920-2005) debuted with the Northern California Symphony Orchestra in 1941 and won accolades for his 1947 performance of Debussy's Pelléas et Mélisande with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Fearing that his music career was not taking off, Uppman become an oil field worker, but was persuaded to return to opera to create the title role in Benjamin Britten's Billy Budd, which debuted to 17 curtain calls at Covent Garden, London in 1951; his muscular physique and tanned appearance from his oil working days were perfect for the role. In all, Uppman appeared in almost 400 performances between 1953 and 1977 at the New York Metropolitan Opera, especially known for his Mozart roles. He also owned the role of Paquillo in Offenbach's La Perichole, the only Met cast member to perform it (54 times) between 1956 and 1971. Corners slightly creased. Lightly toned around edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
