Amelita Galli-Curci

In 1916, Amelita Galli-Curci, an Italian born opera singer, arrived in the United States as a virtual unknown. Galli-Curci had made a small name for herself singing and traveling in Europe and now looked to tackle the American stage. Very quickly Galli-Curci met with great acclaim and rose through the ranks performing at renowned theatres around the country. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FruX_F4Z7g
