I just acquired a puzzle version of Rigoletto.  It's acoustical, on English
Columbia D-16346 through  D-16362, 33 sides.  The final side is one from
L-1168, "Have You News of My Boy Jack?" sung by Thorpe Bates.

 

The Rigoletto matrix numbers are in the no prefix 17467--74780 range- I've
not checked them all yet.

 

None of the sides bear any data in the dead wax.  It is in Italian.  The
performers are identified only by their roles in the opera, not by personal
name.

 

The complete acoustical Columbia Ferraris/Taccani/Formichi version is 32
sides and is on English Columbia  D-17732-17747.  I do not know the matrix
numbers.

 

Can anyone identify the performers on this set?
