About this Item

Slightly worn and soiled. Czech soprano Jarmila Novotná "made her début in Prague as Ma?enka in The Bartered Bride in June 1925. In 1928 she sang Gilda at the Verona Arena, and in 1931 the title role in Offenbach's La Belle Hélčne at Berlin. From 1933 to 1938 sang at the Vienna Staatsoper. In Vienna she created the title role in Lehár's Giuditta (1934) opposite Richard Tauber; the performance was broadcast by 120 radio stations. Her American début was as Butterfly at San Francisco in 1939, and she was a valued member of the Metropolitan Opera from 1940 to 1956 where her repertory included Donna Elvira, Pamina, Octavian, Violetta, Freia and Mélisande. She returned to Europe after World War II. She also appeared in a film of The Bartered Bride directed by Max Ophüls in 1932 that continues to be regarded as one of the most successful translations of opera to the medium of film." Harold Rosenthal and Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online. Bookseller Inventory # 24053
