Very Good. Octavo in dust jacket, frontispiece photo, xxvi, 342 pp., b/w illustrations, chronology, concert reertoire, discography, notes, bibliography, index. From the flap copy, "Born Raitza Burchstein in the Polish ghetto of Bialystok, she fled the 1906 pogroms and settled in Italy, where she studied under Barbara Marchisio at the conservatory of Naples. After her operatic debut in 1913 as Leonora in 'Oberto' during the Verdi celebrations at Parma, she immediately joined Cleofonte Campagnini's Chicago Opera and, renamed Rosa Raisa, achieved instant acclaim."
Fair. 1555535046 Marked as 'acceptable' mainly because this is an ex-library copy with the usual stamps, markings and stickers. Hardcover, with dust jacket and library mylar cover, 342 pages, Northeastern University Press publishers, 2001 copyright, ISBN: 1555535046. Title: Rosa Raisa: A Biography of a Diva with Selections from Her Memoirs author: Charles Mintzer. Usually ships with delivery confirmation. Where available, a photo of the actual cover has been provided instead of a stock photo. Condition description: an ex-library copy with mylar covers, usual stamps, circulation sticker has been torn off the right side of the end paper, leaving a rough strip of paper behind, appears to be a very lightly used copy otherwise inside the book. From the end flap: In this first biography of Raisa, Charles Mintzer provides a captivating and revealing portrait of a warm-hearted, generous artist whose career and complex personality were shaped by a life that crossed Jewish, Italian, and American cultural boundaries. Mintzer masterfully blends his narrative with selections from Raisa's unpublished memoir and excerpts from contemporary critical reviews to present a well-rounded picture of this extraordinary woman and to trace her incredible journey to operatic fame.
