Lot 723: Boldly penned ALS in French, one page, 5 x 5.5, June 5, 1898. Letter to "Cher maitre," possibly to the accomplished composer Jules Massenet, as identified at the top in pencil. In part (translated): "Please accept my most sincere thanks for your charming article on my Boheme. Accept this expression of my gratitude." In fine condition. La Boheme, Puccini's fourth opera, was his first major success and arguably his greatest work. It debuted in Turin in February 1896 and was quickly adopted into the international repertory. As Massenet was one of the leading French opera composers of the era, his compliments would have been especially well appreciated.
