Jean Buysson (Tenor) (?1875 - 1912?)


Restored by me

Probably for the first time he appeared in 1900 at the opera house of Lüttich. In 1906, after a successful guest performance, he was engaged by the court opera of Munich. In this opera house he remained till 1909. He sang in Munich in several premières; thus he sang in 1908 the role of Pelléas in the Munich première of ‘’Pelléas et Mélisande’’, in 1908 the role of Don César in ‘’Donna Diana’’ of E. N. Reznicek, in 1909 the Cavaradossi in ‘’Tosca’’. After a guest performance as José in ‘’Carmen’’ he was engaged in the 1909-10 season by  the court opera of Vienna, however, returned in 1910 again Munich. In 1913 he left Germany and guested among other things in 1913 at the Covent Garden, London. The career of the singer seems to have been soon finished afterwards, in any case, no more other appearances can be ascertained. During his appearances at  the court operas of Berlin (1910) and Dresden (1910) and in other theaters. Married to soprano Mme Buysson-Torres.
