Click image to enlarge

CHALIAPIN, FEODOR. (1873-1938). Russian bass, and one of the greatest opera singers of the 20th century. CS. (“Souvenir F. Chaliapin”). 1p. 12mo. N.p., N.d. A large cut signature framed with an original early Russian postcard of Chaliapin in traditional Russian dress including a long kosovorotka shirt.

 

The first internationally known Russian singer, Feodor Chaliapin possessed a technical virtuosity and dramatic force unmatched by any other singer of his time. He made his debut on December 19, 1898 and subsequently performed throughout Europe and the U.S. Chaliapin was renowned for his performance in the starring role of Mussorgsky’s opera Boris Godunov. Initially sympathetic to the 1917 revolution, he remained in Russia for a time but soon found the new regime to be as oppressive as the Romanovs and left his homeland in 1922, forcing the government to strip him of his property and honors. He made his home thereafter in Paris where he exposed western audiences to Russian operas.

 

Very fine; not examined out of the frame.
