POL PLANÇON
Rare signature from the French operatic bass, dated 1907 in New York, shortly before his retirement
Signature: "Pol Plaçon/New York 18 Fevrier 1907", 3¾x2. French operatic bass Pol Plançon (1851-1914) was one of the most celebrated and popular vocalists of the late 1800's and early 1900's, singing during what was referred to as the "Golden Age of Opera". Plançon trained under the French tenor Gilbert Duprez, making his debut in Lyon in 1877 as Saint-Bris in Les Huguenots. In 1883, he was invited to sing at the Paris Opera, and would remain there for a 10 year long engagement. After performing in his home country for several years, Plançon traveled to perform, being praised for his performances at the Covent Garden in London and the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Most notable of his roles include Sarastro in The Magic Flute, Rocco in Fidelio, and Méphistophélès in Faust. The bass retired from the stage in 1908 at the age of 57, and spent the rest of his life giving private voice lessons. Toned. Light ink marks across signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
