Pierre Deldi (Baritone) (? Toulouse - ?)


For some years he was engaged by the Opera House in Toulouse, whose audience estimated him very much. During the 1930's he appeared as a guest in the famous French opera houses and sang among other things in 1934 at the Grand Opéra in Paris as Germont in ''La Traviata''. From 1947 to 1950 he worked as a director of the Opera House (Théâtre Capitole) in Toulouse, since 1953 as a professor in the conservatoire there. His repertoire included Valentin in  ''Faust'', Albert in ''Werther'', Ourrias in ''Mireille'', Boniface in ''Le Jongleur der Notre Dame'' by Massenet, Hérode in ''Hérodiade'', Lescaut in ''Manon'' of Massenet, Figaro in ''Il Barbiere di Siviglia''.
