Emile Scaramberg (Tenor) (Besancon, France 1863 - Besancon, France 1938)




He studied singing at the Paris Sainte-Marie Institute in and later with the tenor E. Perrin. He completed his vocal training with Charles Nicot and made his debut in 1893 at the Paris Opera-Comique in ‘’Richard Coeur-de-Lion’’of Gretry. He remained two years at the Opera-Comique and then sang at the opera houses of Nantes, Nice, Marseille, Bordeaux and Vichy. Guest performances followed in London (Covent Garden. 1897) and Monte Carlo. In the 1896-97 season he performed at the opera house of Nice as a partner of Nellie Melba. In 1897 Scaramberg was in Antwerp where he sang in Wagner’s ‘’Tannhauser’’. In the 1898-99 season he appeared at the Theatre de la Monnaie in Brussels. Recruited by Pedro Gailhard, director of the Opera, who heard him in Bordeaux, Scaramberg made his Palais Garnier debut as Lohengrin in 1903. From 1903 to 1907 he was a member of the Grand Opera in Paris (beginning role: Lohengrin). Here he appeared among other things in 1905 in an important performance of Gluck’s ‘’Armide’’. In 1907 he suddenly lost his voice and had to give up his career and lived then as a pedagogue in Besancon.
