TREEMONISHA (1975) Theatre window card poster for Scott Joplin adaptation$1,000.00
Scott Joplin (book, music) Washington, D.C., 1975. Vintage original 22 x 14″ (56 x 36 cm.) window card poster, some wear and handling at edges, some light creases, but VERY GOOD or better, with bright colors. Scott Joplin, master of ragtime music, wrote this opera in 1911, a celebration of African-American life and culture set on an Arkansas plantation, in a variety of musical styles. It never got a full performance in his lifetime. In the 1970s the opera began to be rediscovered. This poster is for a Washington tryout of a Houston Grand Opera production, prior to a Broadway run.
