Maurice Sens (Tenor) (1880- ? )

He made his debut at the Opéra-Comique in 1910 and in the same year created the leading tenor role in Samuel-Rousseau’s ‘’Léone’’. More familiar repertoire was at the fore in subsequent seasons, when he sang Don José, Werther, Rodolfo, des Grieux, Turiddu, and Julien (Charpentier’s ’’Louise’’). In 1923, Sens wed his pupil, the considerably younger soprano, Gina Cigna (1900-1999). His recordings are very rare.
