About this Item

1 page. Octavo. In black ink. On stationery with "Théatre National de L'Opéra" and Noté's name and address printed at head. In French (with translation). "Unfortunately on December 8 I sing [Meyerbeer's] L'Africaine in Le Havre. With all my regrets."Slightly worn; creased and torn at fold. Jean Noté, a Belgian baritone, "studied in Ghent, where he made his concert début in 1883. Early operatic work there and in Lille and Antwerp led to an engagement at La Monnaie, Brussels, in 1887. From 1893 his career centred on the Paris Opéra, where he sang for more than 20 years. At Covent Garden in 1897 his roles included Amonasro, Escamillo, Valentin, Nevers (in Les Huguenots), Mercutio and Wolfram; but, despite his ready availability, he had no great success either there or at the Metropolitan in 1908-9. He also appeared in Berlin and Monte Carlo, and was a prolific recording artist, stylistically somewhat rough and uninteresting, but sturdy of tone." J.B. Steane in Grove Music Online.
