The Grand "Pas des Elemens" at Her Majesty's Theatre. Hand-colored steel engraving by Smyth of Grisi, Rosati, and Cerito.

[London]: 1847. Image size ca. 155 x 222 mm, sheet size 206 x 264 mm. From The Illustrated London News, July 10, 1847.

The three dancers are depicted full length, en pointe. With identification and titling printed beneath image.

From the collection of the distinguished American mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne (b. 1934).

Slightly creased, browned, and soiled.

Carlotta Grisi (1819-1899), Carolina Rosati (1826-1905), and Fanny Cerrito (1817-1909) were three of the leading Italian dancers of the 19th century.

"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, Spanish and American songs with equal aplomb." Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online. Item #31922
