Camille Seygard


, French soprano, made her Metropolitan Opera debut as Grimgerde in Walküre on January 13, 1902, and remained with the company for three seasons. (She had appeared at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1898 with the Damrosch-Ellis Opera, singing Urbain in Huguenots and Eva in Meistersinger. ) During 1902-03, her most important season with the company, Seygard sang four Carmens, the Shepherd in Tannhäuser, Desdemona, Musetta, Urbain, Helmwige, the Forest Bird in Siegfried, Nedda, Woglinde, the First Lady in The Magic Flute, and Marguerite. Of her four Marguerites, three were in New York, as replacement of the indisposed Emma Eames. In the fall 1901 tour, Seygard had substituted fourteen times for either Eames, Calvé, Scheff, or Sibyl Sanderson (once in the middle of Manon ). For the season of thirty-seven performances and two concerts, she received $3,324.50.
