Gaston de Poumayrac (Tenor) (Toulouse, France 1877 - ?)




His real name was Gaston de Poumayrac de Masredon. From 1897 to 1899 he studied singing at the Toulouse Conservatory and won the first prizes. Under Paul Lhérie, Numa Auguez, and Théophile-Adolphe Manoury he continued his education at the Paris Conservatory (1900-1904). He made his debut at Paris Opéra-Comique on 9 October 1904 as Vincent in C. Gounod’s ‘’Mireille’’. He remained there until 1912, appearing mostly as Comprimario. In 1908 he made guest appearances at the Paris Gaîté Lyrique, performing in ‘’La fille du régiment’’ and ‘’Les dragons de Villars’’. Since 1912 he was the principal tenor of the Paris Folies-Dramatiques. He was an exclusive Pathé Company artist (1910-1912).
