Breiting, Hermann - Large Collection of Playbills 1830s, 40s and 50s

Item #: M3133-G10


Famous German tenor (1804-1860), a protegé of Spontini, Breiting sang at the most important theaters in Germany in his time, and in London, Prague and in France, eventually developing symptoms of a mental disease that ended his career and his life early. 

Extraordinary, unique collection of 23 original, vintage playbills from the 1830s, 40s and 50s - all opera performances listing his name in the cast. Of the total of 23, most (16 of them) are 9 x 14 inches or so, 4 playbills are large, poster-like size (up to 18 x 24 inches) and 3 are smaller size (5 x 8 inches approx.). In good to very good condition, all have folds, some rust stains, minor losses, but overall very good, with the exception of the large Covent Garden playbill 1842 that is in poor condition.

Many rare playbills, including a few very early performances of some operas, such as Tannhauser.

Also included are 18 newspapers or magazines from the same time period, mentioning him. See scans. Full magazines or newspapers (except one).

A total of  41 items, all are scanned.
