“For music lovers under sixty, Andre Mallabrera was little more than a name, performing minor roles alongside Nicolai Gedda and Victoria de Los Angeles: it is he who sings the role of Nathanael in the Cluytens versions of LES CONTES D’HOFFMANN and of Schmidt in WERTHER.

Mallabrera made his debut at the Opera-Comique in December 1958 in Almaviva in BARBIERE after which he played many roles in the house. In 1962, he was heard for the first time at the Paris Opera, as Hylas in LES TROYENS with Regine Crespin and Guy Chauvet. Andre Mallabrera was also very popular in operetta.”
