762 x 508 mm. Rolled.
From the collection of the distinguished American mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne (b. 1934).
Rossini's L'Italiana in Algeri was first performed in Venice at the Teatro San Benedetto on May 22, 1813. Marilyn Horne has sung role of Isabella throughout her career, always to great acclaim.
"Horne had a voice of extraordinary range, rich and tangy in timbre, with a stentorian chest register and an exciting top... In concert she once achieved the feat of singing in a single programme Rossini arias and Brünnhilde's Immolation Scene, proof of her exceptional versatility. Throughout her lengthy career she was an admired recitalist, singing lieder, mélodies, and Spanish and American songs with equal aplomb." Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online.
