Verdi pens 16 bars of music from his 1871 tragic opera masterpiece, Aida

Exquisite AMQS from Giuseppe Verdi on an off-white 8.25 x 5.25 sheet, signed below in crisp black ink, “G. Verdi, 15 Agosto 1883,” who pens four lines and a total of 16 bars of music from his classic 1871 tragic opera Aida, the name of which Verdi has added to the upper margin. In fine condition. Aida premiered at Cairo's Khedivial Opera House on December 24, 1871, and has since been performed countless times in opera houses around the world, cementing its status as a cornerstone of the operatic repertoire. A marvelous musical quotation from the Italian master, whose Aida holds a central and significant place in the operatic canon as a quintessential example of Italian grand opera.
