To an unnamed friend, offering him a box at the Paris Opera for the debut of her husband, the baritone, composer and art collector Jean-Baptiste Faure, which the recipient had promised to attend: "C’est vendredi prochain que mon mari début à l’Opéra. Vous nous avez promis d’assister à cette première représentation et j’espère que vous voudrez bien accepter une loge, peut-être un peu modeste, mais la meilleure que nous ayons pu obtenir [...]".

Constance-Caroline Levebvre and her equally famous stage partner Jean-Baptiste Faure (1830-1914) had married in 1859. Jean-Baptiste celebrated his successful debut at the Paris Opera with Józef Michal Poniatowski’s "Pierre de Médicis" in October 1861.

Traces of folds and former mounting. With a minor tear and insignificant foxing.
