Henri Saint-Cricq (Tenor) (Bretagne, France 1901 - Bercq, France 1973)


He studied singing at the Conservatoire de Paris. Since about 1930 he sang in both big opera houses in Paris, at the Grand Opéra (1932-1936, debut as Lohengrin) and at the Opéra-Comique. He reached his most significant achievements here appearing in dramatic roles: as Samson in ''Samson et Dalila'' by Saint-Saëns, Radames in ''Aida'',  Otello of Verdi, as Sigurd in the opera of the same name by Reyer, as Faust in ''La damnation de Faust'' of Berlioz and as José in ''Carmen''. He made guest appearances at the French province, however, has not appeared apparently abroad. In 1955 he retired from the stage and worked since then as a vocal pedagogue.
