About Alain Fondary:

Alain Fondary (born 9 October 1932 in Bagnolet) is a French baritone.

Before embarking on his lyrical career, Alain Fondary followed the family tradition of glass blower, like his parents, in Paris, Boulevard Voltaire. He attended glass school and went to opera with his parents and José Luccioni, a friend of the family. Passionate about judo, he nevertheless worked on singing at the age of thirty, first with André Baugé, then with Georges Jouatte and André Hauth, then with Yvonne Pons, Alice Monfort and Gaetano Abrani.

He made his debut in Cherbourg in Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo, performing the role of Tonio in 1968 and the following year sang Ourrias in Mireille by Charles Gounod in Toulouse. He created Les Boréades by Jean-Philippe Rameau, under the direction of Gardiner in London in 1980. His career accelerated in Bercy in 1984, when he replaced Piero Cappuccilli in Aida by Verdi, where he played Amonasro; he was then offered the biggest stages. The following year he sang at the Chorégies d'Orange, at Covent Garden, and La Scala. In 1987, he made his American debut in San Francisco in the role of Scarpia of Tosca by Giacomo Puccini and the following year at the MET in Cavalleria rusticana by Pietro Mascagni and Aida; in Munich, he sang in Les Contes d'Hoffmann. In Paris, he sang in Thaïs by Jules Massenet and Rigoletto by Verdi. He appeared for the first time at the Easter festival of Salzburg in 1989 in Tosca alongside Luciano Pavarotti and under the direction of Karajan, and in Carmen in Paris. The following year he was asked to play at the Wiener Staatsoper; in 1992 he played Falstaff in Buenos Aires.
