Alfred Piccaver (February 5, 1884 -  September 23, 1958, in Vienna), British-American operatic tenor, vintage 3.5 x 5.5 silver print postcard.

He was particularly noted for his performances as Rodolfo in Giacomo Puccini's 'La bohème' and other popular mainstream operatic roles. His studies led to a three-year contract with the Deutsches Landes-Theater in Prague where he made his debut on 9 September 1907 in Otto Nicolai's 'The Merry Wives of Windsor.' In the following three years, he sang in operas by Flotow, Verdi,Wagner, Mozart, Puccini and Gounod. This variety stood him in good stead, because in 1910, he was invited to appear as a guest in Mattia Battistini’s touring company that was performing in Prague. He must have impressed Battistini because Piccaver was persuaded to travel with the company to their next venue in Vienna where the Vienna Hofoper showed an interest in him. However, he continued to sing with the Prague company for the remainder of his contract and it was not until 6 September 1912 that he gave his first performance with the Vienna State Opera as a permanent member.

Verso bears original printed postcard graphics, else blank and clean. In very good condition.
