One of the first great international celebrity performers, Italian opera star Enrico Caruso (d.1921) packed theaters across Europe and the Americas for twenty-five years. Thanks to the development of the recording industry, the celebrated tenor's voice was known far and wide and his numerous recordings remain in favor more than a century after their release. Sing a sweet song when you claim this Caruso framed display. Measuring 18x22, this ensemble piece is laid out from top to bottom with: 1.) a 5x7 photo of Caruso in one of his signature roles, as the clown in the opera "Pagliacci"; 2.) a 5-1/4 x 2-1/2" signature cut with a stylish ("7") strength autograph, accompanied by the date inscription "Atlanta, Ga. April 27th 1912"; and 3.) an engraved 6x1 title plate that proclaims "Enrico Caruso The Greatest Opera Singer of Alltime". Caruso is cited as having played the role of the "Duke of Mantua" in the opera "Rigoletto" at the "Auditorium" in Atlanta on 4/27/12 and all elements of this framed piece present in excellent condition.
