Title: Signed Program.
Signed: Signed by Author(s)
New York City's famed Juilliard School was the breeding ground for this unusual opera troupe of under-30 singers that sprung up in the 1940s, the brainchild of David Otto. Signed Program, small 4to (6¼" X 9½"), 4pp, n.p., n.y. Very good. Mild edgewear and folds; faint age toning. Attractive program on buff stock for the Nine O'Clock Opera Company's appearance at the "Community Concert Association" performing "The Marriage of Figaro: A Comic Opera in Two Acts." The entire cast of seven listed on the front wrapper have each signed boldly in pencil: David Otto, John Tyers (1914-07), Helen Van Loon, Vera Weikel (1911-61), John McRae, Allen Stewart and Gertrude Gibson, along with pianist Max Walmer. Inside pages give a plot summary of "The Marriage of Figaro" (page 2) and the history of this upstart opera company (page 3), noting "the oldest member of the company is now thirty." Interesting and unusual!. Bookseller Inventory # 40760
