Tenor Michel Sénéchal has passed away at the age of 91 on April 1, 2018.

The international singer who hailed from France was known for his work in the French and Italian repertoire, ranging from Baroque to contemporary works. Sénéchal maintained a stable career in Paris and Brussels and also appeared in Salzburg and Glyndebourne. He also made debuts at the Aix-en-Provence Festival and at the Vienna State Opera.

Among the operas he performed included “La Dame Blanche,” “Les Indes Galantes,” “Il Matrimonio Segreto,” “Il Barbiere di Siviglia,” “Le Comte Ory,” and “Les Contes d’Hoffmann.” He also performed in numerous operettas including “Orphée aux Enfers,” “La Vie Parisienne,” and “La Périchole.”

After retiring from singing, he went on to teach at the “L’École d’art lyrique” of the Paris Opéra in 1979, and was eventually named director of the school.

He made several recordings and can be heard on “La Dame Blanche,” “Mireille,” and “Thaïs,” made in the early 1960s.
