Beautiful, rare program for a performance of opera in 1902 at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, celebrating the visit of Prince Henry of Prussia. Large size, 10.5 x 14 inches, in silk. Performers are Milka Ternina, Ernestine Schumann-Heink, Johanna Gadski, Eduard de Reszke, Emma Calve, Antonio Scotti, Emma Eames, Louise Homer, Marcella Sembrich, Lucienne Breval, and other stars!.
Performance included 6 parts, each one being an act from a famous opera - way too much, as we know the prince left after several hours and before part 5 (act I from La Traviata) was going to be performed. For this reason, Marcella Sembrich refused to perform in La Traviata and performance continued with part 6 (Le Cid, opera by Massenet). Some wrinkles, otherwise in excellent condition
