HENRI LEGAY

Parisian-born Henri Legay (1920–1992) won first prize at the conservatoire in 1947 but began his career singing in musical shows before making his operatic début in Brussels in 1950. He made his first major Parisian appearance as Gérald (Lakmé) in April 1952. His career was predominately a French-based one and centred at the opéra-comique and the provincial theatres, where he sang a wide range of rôles including Nadir (Les pêcheurs de perles), Julien (Louise), Wilhelm Meister (Mignon), Alfredo (La traviata), and the title parts in Werther, Gounod’s Faust, and Les contes d’Hoffmann. As a composer he is credited with over three hundred songs. His recordings include Le Roi d’Ys, Les pêcheurs de perles and Maurouf. He retired during the 1970s.
