About Constance Nantier-Didiée

Constance Nantier-Didiée was a French mezzo-soprano. According to commentators of her time, she was described as a true mezzo-soprano rather than a contralto. She had a wide range of comic, dramatic and travesty roles in her theatrical career developed in Paris, London, Moscow and Madrid. She is also remembered for creating the role of Preziosilla for the world premiere of Verdi's La forza del destino.

There is a novel based on her life Christophe Delhoume: Constance Nantier-Didiée, une femme moderne sous le second empire
