Sign Here: Collecting Signed Opera Magazines December 17 2014
For a long time, opera fans have been turning to opera-related publications
such as programs, librettos, scores and even opera magazines, all for the purpose of getting them autographed by their favorite artists.
Opera magazines offer a good option, since most feature beautiful photographs of opera stars in their covers. A couple of good examples are Opera News, a monthly publication associated with the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and Das Opern Glas, a Hamburg-based publication released every month in German language.
Recollected by a fan for nearly 20 years, we acquired and listed nearly 100 signed magazines from these 2 publications, all from the 1980s, 90s and early 2000s. Each one is signed by a famous opera star, either singer or conductor.
TIME magazine, a famous weekly publication since 1923, has also celebrated the art of opera and classical music. Time has periodically released covers featuring singers and conductors, including an article about the featured artist.
We have listed over a dozen of them, unsigned, with artists such as Lily Pons, Maria Callas,
Rosa Ponselle, Nellie Melba, Kirsten Flagstad, and many others. See them HERE. Separately, we also listed a few of these signed by Luciano Pavarotti, Beverly Sills, Rudolf Bing, etc. Find them by typing the proper keywords.
