Madame Butterfly Poster

The price theory rather vaguely says that since we differ in a value, we agree on a price. Soprano Leyla Gencer's poster of her Madame Butterfly performance in the City Opera (1950s) is an example. Just a few years prior to her departure to Italy, Gencer took stage in Puccini's renowned opera, directed by G. Singer.

It was again Madame Butterfly, this time in San Carlo Opera, that helped her achieve worldwide recognition. From San Francisco to La Scala Milan, she continued to increase the number of her admirers including me.

And the price theory. Look at the price tag and try guessing how much I value her. Do you think we will agree on the price? You bet we will!

Dimensions: 135x100 cm.
Estimated value: $ 200
