“Landouzy was a stalwart of the Opéra-Comique where she made her début as Rosina in IL BARBIÈRE DI SIVIGLIA (11 November 1889). She also appeared in various French provincial houses, notably Royan, Nice, and Aix-les-Bains. Outside France, she frequently appeared at the Monnaie and Monte Carlo. Landouzy created the role of Marie d’Angleterre in Messager’s LA BASOCHE (30 May 1890, Opéra-Comique) and Clorinde in Pierné’s LA FILLE DE TABARIN. She also participated in the French premiere of Verdi’s FALSTAFF (Nanette) in the presence of the composer at the Opéra-Comique on 18 April 1894. Her recording legacy is particularly important. There is no difficulty in reconciling her recorded voice with her solid reputation.”
