About Liliane Berton:

Liliane Berton (11 July 1924, Bully-les-Mines, Pas-de-Calais - Paris, 22 April 2009) was a French soprano, known principally on the opera stage, but also active in radio recordings and as a teacher.

Although considering a dramatic career, after vocal studies at the Conservatoire de Lille and the Conservatoire de Paris she made her debut at the Opéra de Marseille as Blondine in Die Entführung aus dem Serail.

Berton was taken on by the RTLN, and made her Paris debut at the Opéra as Siebel in Faust on 8 September 1952, before appearing in the premiere of Dolorès by Michel-Maurice Lévy at the Opéra-Comique on 7 November 1952.

Her career encompassed many lighter soprano roles in the repertoire: l’Amour, Fatime (Les Indes galantes), Sophie (Werther), Poussette (Manon), Xenia (Boris Godunov), Rosina (The Barber of Seville, in French), Eurydice (Orphée), Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier) and Chérubin and Susanna (The marriage of Figaro).

In 1957 she created the role of Soeur Constance in the French premiere of Dialogues des Carmélites by Francis Poulenc.

As well as Paris, she sang frequently in the French provincial houses, as well as at the Festivals of Aix-en-Provence, Edinburgh, Glyndebourne and the Netherlands, and in Rio de Janeiro, Buenos-Aires, Lisbon and London.

Around 1966 her career moved from performing to teaching, at the Paris Conservatoire, with Gabriel Bacquier, while still occasionally singing lighter repertoire and opérettes.
