Vintage Opera News - February 2, 1959

Opera News - February 2, 1959
Volume 23, Number 14
Published by the Metropolitan Opera Guild

With a focus on Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann, this February  1959 issue of Opera News features a cover photograph by Louis Melançon showing Hoffmann (Nicolai Gedda) with his first love, Olympia (Mattiwilda Dobbs), whom he sees through rose-colored glasses.

Each of these vintage Opera News magazines measures 7” wide and 10” tall and is roughly 32-36 pages in length. They have been lovingly preserved and each is a fascinating time capsule of what was happening at the Met Opera during its publication. They include interesting opera analysis, multiple black and white photos, and charming advertisements from the era. However, with the gorgeous covers you may just want to frame it and use it as unique opera decor!
