The Harold Rosenthal Collection of Press Notices


Donated in memory of opera critic Harold Rosenthal by his widow, Phyllis Rosenthal, this collection contains reviews of performances at the Royal Opera House from 1847 to 1937, and of opera performances at other major London theatres between 1865 and 1937. There are some reviews of regional and overseas performances as well as biographies, obituaries and illustrations of singers and composers. Cuttings relating to the Royal Opera House have been conserved through the generosity of The Friends of Covent Garden.
