BOCKEL_0001This cabinet card features Miss Marie Bockel dressed in costume for her performance in "La Vie". She was photographed by celebrity photographer Moreno. Moreno's gallery was located in New York City. To view other photographs by Moreno, click on the category "Photographer: Moreno". A stamp on the reverse of the image states "Russell Brothers, 126 Tremont Street, Boston". Miss Bockel's appearance in La Vie was announced in the New York Times (1884). "La Vie" was H. B. Farnie's adaptation of Offenbach's "La Vie Parisenne". Marie Bockel also appeared in the New York Times (1884) when she appeared with the W. A. Mestayer Company in the performance of "We, Us, and Company of Mud Springs". The show was described as a "wild musical farce" concerning the establishment of a sanitarium. The newspaper's review of the show was favorable and it mentions that Miss Bockel sang the soprano parts in some of the quartets "very well".
