CRITIC REVIEWS:

“Fanny Heldy is few collectors’ favourite singer today, but she was one of the most important sopranos in both Paris and Brussels for nearly thirty years, associated with several creations…and many important revivals, starting in 1910….the record collector is tempted to reappraise the aural evidence of this obviously now underrated singer, and indeed some of her records repay careful listening….Malibran has a near complete CD [above] and her MANON – the first commercial recording – is available at Marston Records [OP0282].”

- John Humbley, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 2012



“Heldy sang at the Palais Garnier (l’Opéra), débuting in 1920 and singing many lyrico-spinto rôles. She was an accomplished comedienne, very attractive, and maintained her high standards throughout her career.”

– Richard T. Soper, BELGIAN OPERA HOUSES AND SINGERS, p.222
