Website of the Week

by Erica Papillion-Posey

Visit this ‘throw-back’ site and explore the exquisite history of Opera- in pictures!

Metlicovitz_MadamButterflySetThe images you see at historicopera.com are part of a private collection of opera postcards, stereo cards, trade cards, cartes de visite, cabinet cards, and sheet music. There are no modern photographic images in this collection.

The collection began with a single postcard of Geraldine Farrar found at a Kentucky postcard show back in 1979. The bulk of the postcard part of the collection was purchased at postcard shows in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Kentucky and a single overseas visit to London and Paris. Today the collection contains about 4,000 items.
