Ca. 253 x 203 mm. Several light ink stains and pencil annotation to verso. American soprano Anna Moffo made her début in 1955 at Spoleto as Norina. "In 1956 she sang Zerlina at Aix-en-Provence and appeared throughout Italy, making her American début the following year as Mimì in Chicago. She joined the Metropolitan Opera in 1959, making her début as Violetta; she appeared regularly in New York during the 1960s and early 1970s in such roles as Pamina, Norina, Gilda, Luisa Miller, the four heroines of Les contes d'Hoffmann, Juliet, Gounod's Marguerite, Manon, Mélisande and the title role in La Périchole. She sang Gilda at Covent Garden (1964), and appeared in Vienna, Salzburg, Berlin and elsewhere. A lyric soprano of warm, full, radiant tone, she also undertook coloratura parts. Her later roles included Thaïs, Adriana Lecouvreur, and Kate in Giannini's The Taming of the Shrew (1979, Vienna, Virginia). Among her many recordings are Nannetta (in Karajan's first Falstaff), Lucia, Luisa Miller and, on film, Violetta in La traviata." Harold Rosenthal and Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online.
