Jane Marignan (Soprano)
She studied singing at the Paris Conservatoire under Melchissèdec, Mangin and other teachers. In 1895 she won the Prix of the Paris Conservatoire and made her debut in the same year at the Opéra-Comique of Paris in the title part of the opera ‘’Galathée’’ of Victor Massé. Then she appeared for some time at French provincial opera houses, but in 1899 again came back to the Opéra-Comique. There she appeared as Eurydice in ‘’Orpheus’’ of Gluck, Donna Elvira in ‘’Don Giovanni’’, Alice Ford in ‘’Falstaff’’ of Verdi, Manon in Massenet’s ‘’Manon’’ and Musetta in Puccini’s ‘’La Bohème’’. Then she undertook tours appearing again at the French provincial opera houses and in 1908 engagement she was engaged by the Théâtre Lyrique of Paris. Probably she retired from the stahe in 1910.
