Gilbert Duprez (6 December 1806 вЂ“ 23 September 1896) was a French tenor, singing teacher and minor composer who famously pioneered the delivery of the operatic high C from the chest. He also created the role of Edgardo in the popular bel canto-era opera Lucia di Lammermoor in 1835.
Biography,Gilbert-Louis Duprez, to give his full name, was born in Paris. He studied singing, music theory, and composition with Alexandre-Etienne Choron and made his operatic debut at the Odeon in 1825 as Count Almaviva in Rossinis Il barbiere di Siviglia. He worked in that theatre without much success until 1828, when he decided to try his luck in Italy. There, the operatic scene was more active and developed. As a result, Duprez was able to immerse himself in work, beginning principally with tenore contraltino roles such as Idreno in Semiramide and Rodrigo in Otello, both by Rossini. He appeared, too, as Gualtiero in Bellinis Il pirata. The latter role proved to be his first undisputed stage success, probably because it was free of elaborate coloratura passages, which were not considered to be his strong suit as a vocalist.In 1831, in Lucca, Duprez took part in the premiere Italian performance of Guglielmo Tell, singing for the first time (in an opera theatre) a high C sung not in the so-called falsettone register, as other tenors of that time were accustomed to do, but with a full voice, often described as coming from the chest. His Italian career then proceeded on a highly successful course. It embraced, among other things, two premieres of operas by Donizetti, namely, Parisina (in the role of Ugo) at Florence in 1832, and, more significantly, Lucia di Lammermoor (in the role of Edgardo) at Naples San Carlo in 1835.File:Gilbert Duprez & Rosine Stoltz in Donizettis La Favorite.jpgWith Rosine Stoltz in La favoriteHis Italian reputation strongly established, Duprez returned to Paris in 1837 and scored an immediate success at the Opera with his exciting new style of vocal delivery as exemplified in William Tell. Consequently, he obtained equal billing with Adolphe Nourrit as principal tenor of the theatre. Nourrit responded by leaving for Italy in emulation of his competitor, but unlike Duprez, he failed to master the new singing style during studies with Donizetti and committed suicide.Duprez maintained his leading position at the Opera until 1849, singing the title role in the premiere of Berliozs Benvenuto Cellini in 1838, and taking part in several further Donizetti premieres, including those of La favorite (as Fernand) and Les Martyrs (as Poliuto), both in 1840, and Dom Sebastien (in the title role), in 1843. Ironically the role of Poliuto, which Donizetti had written expressly for Nourrit in order to help him to maintain his exalted position, was to become associated in the publics mind with Duprez.As Gaston in the premiere performance of Giuseppe Verdis Jerusalem.After singing in London at the Drury Lane theatre in the years 1843-1844, Duprez began to cut back on his stage performances, with a notable exception being the lead role in Giuseppe Verdis Jerusalem. His last public appearance was in 1851 in Lucia di Lammermoor at the Theatre des Italiens. He then devoted himself to teaching, first at Pariss Conservatoire (where he had been appointed to a professorship as far back as 1842), and afterwards privately. His students included the celebrated French virtuoso bass Pol Plancon (1851–1914), whose voice is preserved on gramophone recordings made in 1902-1908. Duprez also devised a system of written exercises for singers and composed a few less than successful operettas.In his 1880 book Souvenir dun chanteur, Duprez, a close friend of Donizettis, related in deeply felt terms the bitter setbacks and obstructions which the Bergamo composer had suffered in the theatrical world.Duprez died at Poissy, near Paris, in 1896.
