Forgotten Opera Singers
May 21, 2012
Guy Cazenave (Tenor) (Hasparren/Bayonne (Lapurdi) 1883 - Algiers 1937)
He made debut at the Grand Opéra in ‘’Aida’’ (1912). Then he appeared there also in ‘’Samsón and Dalila’’. Three years later at the same theatre he sang in ‘’Henry VIII’’ and ‘’Ascanio’’ of Saint-Saëns and ‘’Hérodiade’’ of Massenet. At the Opera-Comique he performed in ‘’Tosca’’ and ‘’Pagliacci’’ (1928). Also he sang at the theaters of Marseilles, Nice and Lyons. When he retired from the stage, he devoted himself to teaching and to his business in Algiers. Probably he was killed there.
