“Andrés de Segurola was born on 27 March 1874 and was a member of Metropolitan Opera Company between 1901 and 1920, later appearing in many films. At the MET he sang in the premieres of the operas LA FANCIULLA DEL WEST (10. 12. 1910), GIANNI SCHICCHI (14. 12. 1918), MADELEINE of Victor Herbert (24. 1. 1914), MADAME SANS-GÊNE of Giordano (25. 1. 1915) as well as in 1912 in the American première of Wolf-Ferrari’s LE DONNE CURIOSE, in 1913 in BORIS GODUNOV (as Warlaam), in 1918 in the American première of Mascagni’s LODOLETTA and in 1917 in MAROUF of Henri Rabaud. Towards the end of his career at the Metropolitan Opera, de Segurola also became an impresario. In 1916 he presented a four-week opera season at the Grand National Theatre in Havana, where his company included Geraldine Farrar and Pasquale Amato. After his retirement from the stage, he taught singing."
