Description
 
The item is a notice to the public by the Theatre d'Orleans for the performance of "The Daughter of the Regiment", a opera comique by Gaetano Donizetti. In the notice it states that "M'lle Poinsot is too unwell to appear this evening... [she] is suffering from such a severe indisposition that it will be impossible for her to fulfil [sic] her professional duties... M'lle Piccolomini, anxious that the public should not be put to any inconvenience, has most obligingly offered her services, and without necessary rehearsal." Anne Poinsot and Marietta Piccolomini were both European soprano opera singers on tour in America in 1858-1859. Poinsot had just recently finished her stint as the Prima Donna from the Grand Opera House in Paris, while Piccolomini was most famous for her role as Violetta in the opera La Traviata. One-sided sheet. Measures 9 1/2" x 5 3/4".
