Autograph letter signed in full to unidentified correspondent.

1 page of a bifolium. Octavo. N.d. In black ink. In French (with translation).

Stoltz writes concerning her studies and status in Paris.

Slightly soiled and foxed; creased at folds and lower right corner of third page; several small perforations to upper portion of all pages.

In 1837, Stoltz made her Paris Opéra debut as Rachel in Halévy's La Juive. She remained there for ten years, and created a number of roles, including Ascanio in Berlioz's Benvenuto Cellini (1838) and Léonor in Donizetti's La Favorite (1840). Scandal forced her to resign in 1847, but she returned in 1854. She was especially praised for the intensity of her acting, and her vocal color and broad palette of timbres.
