Genevive Moizan entered the Conservatoire de Paris in 1942, and upon graduation in 1946 she won first prize in the Saint Sulpice competition. She dbuted at the Paris Opra in 1949 as Margurite in FAUST (with Nor and Andr Pernet), moving on to a vast repertoire. She often appeared in Monte Carlo, Geneva, Strasbourg, Brussels, Algiers, etc. It was, however, her collaboration with the ORTF which gained her the essential part of her national popularity for almost twenty-five years.

With its clear timbre, her lyric soprano was equally acclaimed in both dramatic and mezzo-soprano roles: Werther, Sapho, Le Roi d'Ys, Mignon, Il Trovatore, etc.
