Odette Turba-Rabier (Soprano)

Born: January 21, 1910 - France
Died: 2000

The French soprano, Odette Turba-Rabier, made her debut in 1936, then undertook coloratura soprano roles at both the Opéra Comique and the Grand Opéra in Paris (where her first appearance in 1945 was as Gilda in Rigoletto). Her career was almost exclusively in the French capital; she made only rare guest appearances in the provinces. Among her major roles were the Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte, the title roles in Lakmé and Mireille, Marzellina in Fidelio and both Konstanze and Blonde in Die Entführung aus dem Serail. In 1942 she took part in the première of the opera Ginevra by M.Delannoy at the Opéra Comique, and in 1944 in the première of La gageure imprévue by Henri Saiguet.

Odette Turba-Rabier had already recorded for HMV before World War II; after the war her recordings appeared on HMV (works by Arthur Honegger) and on Columbia (including two roles in a complete recording of Ravel's L'Enfant et les sortilèges).
