Callas, Maria. (1923–1977)
Signed Photograph in Il Pirata
Signed photograph of the legendary diva, who is shown in costume for Bellini's Il Pirata at La Scala in 1958. Callas has inscribed and signed across the image. Photographed by E. Piccagliani for La Scala and stamped by the theatre on the verso, with a further signature on the verso. Rather poor contrast to signature and inscription; overall fine. 4.25 x 5.75 inches (10.5 x 14.8 cm).
