Autograph Letter Signed (I)

Item #: H9051-GZ259D

Autograph letter in Italian with the letterhead of the Hotel Bristol in Vienna, signed by the composer as 'Giacomo', no date indicated (circa October 1907), and addressed to her close friend Sybill Seligman (1863-1936).

Size is 5.4 x 8.7 inches each page, 3 written pages in two separate sheets, some rust on pages 2 and 3, folds, minor cracks, sold with translation, in overall very good condition.

Puccini lets her know that he wishes she was with him and also comments on the rehearsals for the Vienna premiere of the revised edition of his opera 'Madama Butterfly' in 1907, sharing his mind about the prima donna Selma Kurz 'Selma Kurz is pretty good, not very intelligent but I like her' and other comments on the production.
