TITO GOBBI
6¼x4½ photograph of a somewhat deranged looking Tito Gobbi in Elizabethan costume and makeup, signed "with my best" in blue ink in 1956
Inscribed photograph signed "To Mr Fucter/with my best/Tito Gobbi/1956" in blue ink. B/w, 6¼x4½, printed on cardstock.Best known for his interpretations of Verdi and Puccini (especially Scarpa in Puccini's Tosca), respected Italian baritone Gobbi (1915-1984) was an excellent actor with an intelligent and flexible singing voice... not to mention a huge repertory of over 100 roles, including roles from relatively obscure composers like Lualdi, Napoli and Ghedini. Gobbi debuted in 1935 as Count Rodolfo in Bellini's La Sonnambula, but didn't find fame until 1942, when he performed the title role in the first Italian performance of Wozzeck. His career exploded in the post war years, with appearances in Covent Garden, the Metropolitan Opera and the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Stockholm and San Francisco, among others. Gobbi also appeared in over 20 movies between 1937 and 1955, mostly in film adaptations of operas. He retired in 1979. Lightly toned and creased. Signature has low contrast but is legible. Light dents at top and bottom edges. Worn corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
