“After training in France, Grace Moore made her operatic début at the Metropolitan Opera on 7 February, 1928, singing the rôle of Mimì in LA BOHÈME. She débuted at the Opéra-Comique in Paris on 29 September, 1928 in the same rôle, which she also performed in a Royal Command Performance at Covent Garden in London on 6 June, 1935. During her sixteen seasons with the Metropolitan Opera, she sang in several Italian and French operas as well as the title rôles in TOSCA, MANON, and LOUISE. LOUISE was her favorite opera and is widely considered to have been her greatest rôle.”
