E00703. Hertz, Alfred - Signed 7x9 Photo, Bushnell Studio, Seattle, September 2, 1930, Signed and dedicated to tenor Albert Rappaport.
“In 1903, Hertz conducted PARSIFAL at the New York Met in the first stage production outside Bayreuth, and this invited the wrath of Cosima Wagner and other Wagnerites who had sought to prevent stage productions outside Bayreuth. As a consequence, he was barred from appearing at Bayreuth or at any other major German opera house.”
