June 29th, 2017

Calvé was probably the most famous French female opera singer of the Belle Époque. Hers was an international career, and she sang regularly at the Metropolitan Opera House, New York, and the Royal Opera House, London.

To commemorate this great personality Monaco Post has released a special stamp that is highly recommended by the team of FindYourStampsValue.com.

Emma Calvé (1858–1942), a tremendous soprano, was a star before the age of stardom. She won fame in particular through the title role in Georges Bizet’s Carmen, which she performed more than a thousand times during her career.

Adored throughout the world, she sang on the stage of the Monte-Carlo Opera several times.
