“Tenor Léon Campagnola was originally a baritone who converted to tenor while undertaking further studies in Paris, called by the critics of his time 'The French Caruso'. Campagnola made his début at Versailles in 1903 as Vincent in MIREILLE by Gounod. He spent the next five years in Belgium, moving to France in 1908 where he débuted at l’Opéra in 1910 as Roméo. He remained at that house (singing David in DIE MEISTERSINGER, the Duke in RIGOLETTO, Armel in Chabrier’s GWENDOLINE, and Faust) until 1913 in which year he sang Gennaro in the French première of Wolf-Ferrari’s I GIOIELLI DELLA MADONNA. He then appeared in several French provincial houses, then in Chicago, Boston and Los Angeles where he sang with Mary Garden in Charpentier’s JULIEN.”
