Marguerite Marilly


(also known as Marguerite Claessens) made her New York debut as Siegrune in Walküre on January 5, 1901. During her three Metropolitan seasons, she was listed in the paybooks as a contralto, but most of her roles were associated with the soprano voice. In 1902-03, her last season, Marilly sang the Priestess in Aida, Venus in Tannhäuser, Emilia in Otello, Bertha in Prophète, Micaela in Carmen, Freia in Rheingold, Marguerite in Faust, and a Genie in The Magic Flute. She sang thirty-nine performances of opera and six Sunday-night concerts, and was paid $2,016. Twice on Sunday nights, she sang Juliette's "Valse."
