Singer of the Day: George Thill, 1897-1984

It seems only natural to follow Ninon Vallin with George Thill, who is considered by many to be the greatest French tenor of the twentieth century. He was singing at the same time as Vallin in France. Thill began his studies in Paris and later went to Naples for further training. He returned to Paris and made his Paris Opéra debut in 1924. He would dominate the scene for the next two decades singing over fifty leading roles.
