Adelina Patti


A carte-de-visite portrait of the great soprano dressed as the eponymous heroine of Dinorah, an 1859 French opéra comique in three acts with music by Giacomo Meyerbeer and a libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré. The story takes place near the rural town of Ploërmel and is based on two Breton tales by Émile Souvestre.

Photographed by Camille Silvy.
