About this Item

2 pp. Octavo. Dated Busseto, July 16, 1880. In French (with translation).Verdi thanks Peragallo for depositing 30,000 francs on his behalf; if he should travel to Paris next winter, he would not need to take money with him. He goes on to mention his opera, Aida.". I see in the papers all the Parisian parties and, alas there are too many! . and I wish for everybody that it will all be parties and banners! I'm enchanted by the news you give me for Aida. "Slightly worn, soiled and browned; creased at central fold with minor abrasion and repair; small portion of blank upper left corner lacking, not affecting text. "Between February and early April 1880, Verdi and his wife were in Paris to oversee a production of Aida, which featured Gabrielle Krauss, Rose Bloch, and Victor Maurel. It was a resounding success. After Verdi and his wife returned to Italy, Emmanuele Muzio, the conductor, sent them astonishing box-office figures, which surpassed nearly every record set at the Paris Opéra." Phillips Matz: Verdi, pp. 652-53. Luigi Peragallo handled Verdi's French and Belgian accounts until 1881, when Verdi sued him for fraud. Bookseller Inventory # 24247
