About this Item: 1906. senza rilegatura. Condition: ottimo. prima edizione. Autografo.CARUSO Enrico. 1873-1921. L'insuperato tenore, i suoi trionfi hanno segnato un'epoca. Corrispondenza autografa firmata diretta all'amico Giovanni Mascia e compresa tra il 27 Novembre ed il 13 Dicembre 1906. Quattro lettere in 8vo (cm.23x15 ciascuna) per complessive dieci facciate su carta intestata Hotel Savoy New York, una con busta e bolli passati per la posta. Soggiornava Caruso nel famoso hotel di fronte al Central Park in attesa del debutto al Metropolitan con la Boheme, debutto che poi avvenne il 28 Novembre 1906, e nei momenti di pausa tra le prove era solito passeggiare nel Parco fino al Monkey House. Qui, vicino la gabbia delle scimmie, fu accusato dal tal Mrs. Graham di palpeggiamenti al fondo schiena. Immediatamente arrestato dall'agente Caine, Caruso fu trattenuto nella prigione del 67mo distretto. Da qui fu liberato dall'amico Conried che pagò la cauzione. Al sommario e farraginoso processo ".la Polizia la quale si è costituita parte civile contro di me in mancanza della donna accusatrice. Adesso tutto è andato bene e fra otto giorni sarò certamente assolto dalla condanna di 50 franchi avuta." scrive nella lettera del 27 Novembre. Il giorno successivo alla prima della Boheme Caruso si presentò di spalle al pubblico, ma al Metropolitan vi fu un'ovazione straordinaria al suo apparire. Ne fu contento tanto che il 4 Dicembre in una risposta a Mascia ".il mio debutto fu splendido e felice. anche se. sono un poco nervoso perchè questa. di voce mia ne fa di tutti i colori". Dopo una settimana di trionfali rappresentazioni Caruso il 13 Dicembre confida le sue preoccupazioni ".la mia voce non è come dovrebbe essere.". Ma il suo scherzoso carattere non si lascia abbattere ne' da problemi di salute ne' da problemi giudiziari: a Mascia risentito per un ruolo poco gratificante il 29 Dicembre risponde ".da oggi ti darò il titolo che ti spetta Presidente Fondatore.". Sbollita la rabbia e l'ansia della disavventura allo zoo più pacatamente comunica ".intanto me lo ànno (sic) messo in corridoio anche in Appello avendo confermato la sentenza dei 10 dollari.". Fu forse la violenta campagna contro l'eccessiva immigrazione italiana la causa di questo sensazionale avvenimento: il poliziotto Caine fu radiato ed il Commissario Mathot allontanato dal distretto. Ma per Enrico Caruso fu un esperienza traumatica, egli ricordò per sempre questo incidente. Autografato dall'autore. Seller Inventory # 5374
