Claudine Boons (Soprano) (Liège 1894 - Brussels 1945)

She had a large dramatique voice and was verry convincing in her dramatic portrayals. She sang at the Monnaie from 1937 untill 1944. She sang at the liberation of Belgium the French national anthem on 30 september 1944, as the other anthems of allies in WWII were performed.
