About Charles Burles:

Charles Burles (born 21 June 1936) is a French lyric tenor, primarily associated with the French repertory, both opera and operetta.

Burles was born in Marseille, France,where he studied voice with Léon Cazauran. He made his stage debut in 1958, in Toulon. The following year he appeared at the Opéra de Marseille, as Almaviva in Il barbiere di Siviglia.

In the ensuing years, he sang mainly in Marseille expanding his repertory, with a few guest appearances in Lyon, Turin, and Venice. He made his debut at the Opéra-Comique in 1970, and at the Paris Opéra in 1971. His roles at these two houses included: Lindoro, Nemorino, Ernesto, George Brown, Chapelou, Vincent, Nadir, Gérard, Tonio, Arturo, etc. He also sang in several Jacques Offenbach operettas, and appeared in Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, and Israel.

A stylish singer, with a light and attractive voice, he can be heard on several recordings of French opera and operetta released by EMI France, often partnering Mady Mesplé, the most famous being Lakmé, under Alain Lombard, in 1970, in which he sings the role of Gérald. He also recorded the small role of Hadji in the same opera, opposite Natalie Dessay in 1998.

Burles is still active today teaching and performing.
