Adolf von Sonnenthal: hand-written letter (card) with ten lines and signature Sonnenthal.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Adolf von Sonnenthal (1834-1909), Austrian actor, was born of Jewish parentage in Budapest.

He made his first appearance at Temesvar in 1851, and after engagements at Hermannstadt and Graz came in the winter of 1855-1856 to Koenigsberg in Prussia. His first performance was so successful that he was engaged by Heinrich Laube for the Burgtheater in Vienna, making his first appearance as Mortimer in Schiller’s Maria Stuart.

Under Laube’s careful tuition he developed within three years into an actor of the first order, excelling both in tragedy and comedy; and in 1882, after twenty-five years of brilliant service at the Court Theatre, he was given a patent of nobility.

In 1884 he became manager-in-chief of the theatre; and in 1887-1888 acted as artistic advisor. He visited the United States in 1885, and again in 1899 and 1902, achieving great success.

His chief parts were Nathan in Lessing’s Nathan der Weise, Wallenstein, and Der Meister von Palmyra.

8,2 x 11,6 inches. Fine condition.

Marcel Horace Frydmann, Ritter von Prawy (born December 29, 1911 in Vienna – February 23, 2003 in Vienna) was an Austrian dramaturg, opera connoisseur and opera critic.

Prawy was born into a Jewish Austro-Hungarian noble family.

As secretary of the tenor Jan Kiepura, he emigrated to the USA when persecution of the Austrian Jews became unbearable in the late 1930s. With the help of his confidante Mártha Eggerth he became acquainted with American musicals and music in general. After the end of the Second World War, Prawy returned to Vienna and brought with him the musical Kiss Me, Kate. It was received by the Viennese with great reservation as they feared the arrival of the American-style musical would spell the end of the traditional Viennese operetta. Nonetheless, Prawy succeeded and was considered henceforth as the one who made German language musicals acceptable and popular.
