MADO ROBIN

Mado Robin (1918-1960) was born in Yzeuressur- Creuse in the Touraine. She won the Paris Concours des sopranos in 1937, but the outbreak of the Second Word War delayed the launch of her operatic career. She made her debut at the Paris Opéra in 1945 as Gilda, and gave her first performance as Lakmé, which was to become her most famous rôle, during the following year at the Opéra-Comique. She enjoyed enormous popularity in France, where she was also a frequent broadcaster, her exceptional vocal range enabling her to sing a wide repertoire. In 1954 she appeared at San Francisco as Gilda and Lucia, and she toured the USSR in 1959. She died in Paris in 1960 from cancer, a few days before the 1,500th performance of Lakmé at the Opéra-Comique, arranged for her birthday.
