Virginia Zeani, soprano, signed photograph
This is a photograph of the Romanian soprano Virginia Zeani, signed in blue ink. The photograph measures 18 × 11.5cm, and shows her dressed for action for Donizetti's Maria di Rohan.
Virginia Zeani (b.1925) was known both for her golden voice and her impeccable technique. Maria Callas’s former husband, Giovanni Battista Meneghini, once told Zeani: “Virginia, I have to tell you, you are one of the very few sopranos my wife is frightened of!”
The photo is in very good condition, with just a little creasing to the edges.
