About this Item

2 pp. of a bifolium. 8vo. Dated Wednesday morning, year and date unknown. On ivory paper. In French (with translation).Stoltz has scored a triumph singing Rossini's Otello: "Yesterday, Tuesday, Otello [was] a great, grand succes. [there was] recall applause after every act, and four rounds of applause after the performance of Saule." She has copied the contents of a missive from "The Director" (presumably, of the Paris Opéra), praising her performance: "The impression you have produced is as immense [and] profound as your wonderful talent! " She mentions a performance of Donizetti's La Favorite and her salon, which is "full of people who compliment her." Occasional light offsetting, staining, and foxing, especially at lower margin; creased at folds, with two short tears at central fold. In 1837, Stoltz made her Paris Opéra debut as Rachel in Halévy's La Juive. She remained there for ten years, and created a number of roles, including Ascanio in Berlioz's Benvenuto Cellini (1838) and Léonor in Donizetti's La Favorite (1840). She was particularly noted for her role as Desdemona in Otello which she first performed on September 2, 1844.Scandal forced her to resign in 1847, but she returned in 1854. She was especially praised for the intensity of her acting, and her vocal color and broad palette of timbres.
