Geraldine Farrar

Geraldine Farrar (1882–1967), a great American operatic soprano, made her Metropolitan Opera debut in 1906 as Cio Cio San in Madama Butterfly. Her voice had a highly individual timbre, which, combined with her beauty, beguiled many who saw her on the stage. Like Enrico Caruso, she possessed a voice that was recorded well by the acoustical process and she recorded copiously for Victor.
