Theodor Uppman on the auction block

Booking ad for Theodor Uppman
We found this 1957 booking ad for Theodor Uppman on EBay and couldn't resist posting it. The ad was placed by Columbia Management. We're not involved with the sale of this item, but we found it to be a wonderful piece of opera memorabilia.

Of course, we love Theodor Uppman, particularly his Billy Budd and we've featured him on this site as one of our "historical hunks."

Here is an audio clip of the great American baritone singing Papageno from Die Zauberflote at the Metropolitan Opera in 1968.
