Emma Eames (1865-1952)
Born in Shanghai, Emma Eames was an American soprano. After studying in Boston and Paris, she debuted at the Paris Opera in 1889 as a brilliant Juliet in Gounod's opera. Eames created the character of Colombe in Saint-Saen's "Ascanio" in 1890. In 1891 the singer made her Covent Garden and Metropolitan debuts. Eames continued at the Metropolitan until 1909, singing leading roles in Mozart, Gounod, Wagner, Verdi, and the role of Tosca. The soprano's technique was universally admired and her voice was full and powerful. She poses here for an unidentified photographer, wearing a fur coat, muff, and plumed hat, carrying a dog.
