About this Item

Original large lithographic poster in colours by Pal, signed in the stone and with the mark of the Pal studio to lower left. 129 x 98 cms. (51.5" x 39"). Laid down to board; slightly worn at edges. In very good condition overall. "In Sapho Massenet made his first attempt at an opera in a modern setting. Dramatically too, with its basis in Daudet's novel, it recalls La traviata. Massenet handles the vicissitudes of love with enormous skill and imagination, and the solo scene for Fanny in the last act may be compared with Charlotte's great monologue in Werther. Sapho is certainly one of Massenet's finest works." Hugh Macdonald et al in Grove Music Online. The poster depicts the singer Emma Calvé in the lead role of Fanny Legrand in the premiere of the opera in Paris at the Opéra Comique on November 27, 1897. Reproduced in Schneider: Massenet, p. 209. Not in Broido. Bookseller Inventory # 21306
