French soprano Andréa Guiot died yesterday at the age of 93. She was one of the most outstanding interpreters of Gounod’s Mireille. She also participated as Micaëla in the Carmen with Maria Callas, under the baton of Georges Prêtre. From 1959 onwards, she played major roles at the Paris Opera. She excelled in roles such as Marguerite (Faust) or Liu (Turandot). After an intense professional activity, she ended her career in 1975 in Strasbourg, as Elisabetta in Verdi’s Don Carlos.

Since 1977, she has been a professor at the Paris Conservatoire and subsequently gave highly sought-after individual lessons.
