Helen Keller "Listens" to the Singing of Caruso (1916)

Singer: Enrico Caruso

The blind and deaf Helen Keller "listens" to Enrico Caruso on April 24, 1916 in Atlanta, Georgia as the great tenor sings the opening third act aria from the Saint-Saens opera Samson et Deliilah, "Vois ma misere, helas" (See my misery, alas), where the Biblical Samson, blinded and imprisoned by enemies, laments his fate.

The lead image shows the front page of the Thursday, April 27, 1916 edition of the Philadelphia Evening Ledger. The photograph of Keller and Caruso appears to have been reversed (at least I've never seen it this way before).

Italian tenor Enrico Caruso (1873-1921) / Vois ma misere, helas (See my misery, alas) / Samson et Delilah (Saint-Saens) / with the Metropolitan Opera Chorus / Joseph Pasternack - conductor / Recorded: December 7, 1916 --
