    This is a guess but I believe this is Manuel Salazar (not Saluzar), a tenor who made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera on January 1, 1912:

    The photographer is C. Mishkin, aka Herman Miskin (1871-1948, New York) immigrated to the United States in 1885 from Minsk, Russia. He was a well-known New York photographer of the early 1900s and a pre-emminent photographer of opera stars.
