About this Item

Ca. 259 x 203. With handstamp of the Metropolitan Musical Bureau, Inc. to verso. Slightly worn and creased. Lily Pons made her Metropolitan Opera début in 1931 as Lucia. "She caused a sensation and thereafter remained with the company for 28 seasons. She had success as Gilda, Amina, Marie (La fille du régiment), Philine (Mignon), Olympia and, above all, Lakmé. In 1935 she sang Rosina at Covent Garden and Gilda and Lucia at the Paris Opéra. She sang in South America, San Francisco (where her roles included the Queen of Shemakha and Violetta), Monte Carlo and Chicago, and made several films. Married to André Kostelanetz from 1938 to 1958, she made her stage farewell at the Metropolitan in 1958 as Lucia. Pons possessed a pure, agile, high coloratura voice, as can be heard on her many recordings." Dennis K. McIntire and Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online. Bookseller Inventory # 23917
