Autographed 3 x 5 textured and deckled postcard photograph as Isolde.

 

The Swedish dramatic soprano was a member of the Royal Swedish Opera from 1906-1925. She was made a Royal Chamber Singer in 1922 there. She was at La Scala, 1923-1924, singing Isolde. From 1925-27, she sang Italian, French, but mainly German roles at the Metropolitan Opera. She also guested in Berlin, Vienna, Budapest, Hamburg, London, Munich, Amsterdam, Brussels and Copenhagen. From 1927-1931 she was an indispensible dramatic soprano soprano at Bayreuth. A number of people who heard both Larsen-Todsen and Kirsten Flagstad sing favored Larsen-Todsen. Her last appearance was at the Paris Opera in 1937, where she sung her final Isolde.
