Sadly, Charlotte Povia has died. She was a friend and I had the pleasure of photographing her at the New York City Opera 1967-1968.  I've scanned a few images, live performances and one rehearsal. First CAVALLERIA March 1968, as Mama Lucia.
CRUCIBLE, March 17, 1968, Charlotte as Rebecca Nurse and Robert Hale as Reverend Smith
MARRIAGE OF FIGARO, Feb. 26, 1967  as Marcellina with Malcolm  Smith as Bartolo
the same FIGARO, Act I with Joan Summers in background as Susannah, the Act I duet
In Rehearsal downstairs, TRAVIATA,  March 26, 1967, Patricia Brooks as Violetta and Charlotte as Flora.  RIP dear friend.


There is an online site for CutandStyles in which the New York City Opera reunion images have been taken from my blog and used in an unauthorized and illegal manner.  The attendees are shown, their hair styles described, their names listed.

One: These images are registered copyright. They are not in the public domain.
Two: No company or individual can use a person's likeness  without written permission from the subject.
Three: For the subjects shown by CutandStyles this has been done without  permission. I would not have granted permission.

There is no contact information on this CutandStyles site.  If you read this, CutandStyles, this use must be removed.

The digital tools are so easy for everyone that legal responsibility is often forgotten. Pictures are owned by the photographer.That's the law, Federal law!  Read the alert on right border of my blog site. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.  They are not automatically in public domain. A photographer has to protect the subjects shown.  Being sued for copyright infringement, unauthorized use can be very costly for an infringer.  CutandStyles take note! REMOVE THOSE IMAGES.
