Beautifully penned AMQS on an off-white 11.25 x 7.75 sheet, signed at the conclusion in black ink, "G. Verdi," and dated at London, May 24, 1875. Verdi pens eight bars of music and lyrics from his three-act opera 'La traviata.' In fine condition, with some very light stains and tiny binding holes along the top edge. Based on La Dame aux Camelias, a play adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas, fils, 'La traviata' premiered at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice on March 6, 1853. At the time of signing, Verdi was busy performing his new requiem 'Liber scriptus,' which was first heard in its new and final version on May 15, 1875, at London's Royal Albert Hall.
