Thomas Salignac


(1867-1945), French tenor from Generac, sang at the Opéra-Comique before coming to New York, where his debut role was Don José, December 11, 1896, opposite the Carmen of Calvé. In 1902-03, the last of his six Met seasons, Salignac appeared again in Carmen, and also as Almaviva in Barbiere, Tonio in Fille du Régiment (he had been in the opera's Met premiere in 1902), Faust, Tamino, and Don Ottavio. He also appeared as Philémon in two special performances of Gounod's Philémon et Baucis with Marcel Journet and Camille Seygard, and on Sunday nights he sang in the Rossini Stabat Mater and the Verdi Requiem. For twenty-eight performances of opera, eight Sunday-night concerts, and one outside engagement, in a season lasting from November 26, 1902, until April 28, 1903, Salignac was paid $11,535.30. He also had a lengthy career as a teacher of singing, as an impresario, and as editor of a musical journal.
