Marie Delna (1875-1932) The French mezzo-soprano, (Marie Ledan), studied
with Calvé's teacher. She may have lacked the passion of an Italian, but her singing
is beautifully smooth, refined and is highly impressive on her Pathé recordings.
She enjoyed considerable success during her career, mainly in Paris (1892-1914).
French contralto Marie Delna (1875-1932) She created no less than nine roles for
the Opéra-Comique where she was a favorite with the audiences.
Contemporains Celebres, was published by Lefrevre-Utile (famed Biscuit producer)
containing portraits...some of Cappiello's finest caricatures of contemporary
celebrities" (Rennert, PAI-XXXVI, 584)
"Published by Lefevre-Utile and Octave Beauchamp, Paris, and distributed
by G. de Malherbe, containing portraits, biographies, signed testimonials and
some of Cappiello's finest caricatures of contemporary celebrities. You might
be asking yourself just what do Sarah Bernhardt, Anatole France, Rejane, Granier,
Massenet, Bartholdi and the Queen of Madagascar have in common? The answer is
quite simple: They all love Lefevre-Utile biscuits, of course" (Rennert,
