Born in France but raised in the United States, Yvonne D'Arle began her serious opera career when she was discovered singing in a rooftop cabaret in New York. In addition to performing at the Met, D'Arle engaged in lighter fare, such as the operetta Countess Maritza and a stage version of The Three Musketeers. Florence Vandamm photographed the singer, posing in an extravagant beaded gown and matching headdress, in the November 1926 Vanity Fair.
