“Agustarello Affre held his own with Escalaïs, de Reszke, Van Dyck, Alvarez, Saléza, Scaramberg, Muratore and Franz in a career that lasted two decades. Affre made his début at the Paris Opéra in 1890 as Edgardo in LUCIA with Nellie Melba. At the Opéra, he created rôles in operas by Massenet and Saint-Saëns and also sang Canio and Belmonte for the first time. Affre never sang at the Opéra-Comique, but during his career he made guest appearances in Lyon, Marseille, Brussels, London, New Orleans, Havana and San Francisco.”
