Léon Rothier, born in Rheims on 26th December 1874, began his career as an orchestral violinist in his home city before taking up singing seriously and studying at the Paris Conservatoire. He made his début at the Opéra-Comique in 1899 as Jupiter in Gounod’s Philémon et Baucis and the following year took part in the première of Louise. He left the Opéra-Comique in 1907 and sang in various French theatres before starting his thirty years at the Met. As late as 1949 he gave a recital at Town Hall, New York. He died in that city on 6th December 1951. Among his recordings are two scenes from Un ballo in maschera with Caruso.
