Opera Singer. A contralto, she is remembered for her long career at Paris' Opera-Comique. The child of a middle class family, she took to music early, entered the Paris Conservatory in 1806, and in 1811 bowed at the Opera-Comique where she was usually billed as 'Mme. Boulanger'. Over her time with the company Marie was part of at least five world premieres, three of them of works by Daniel Auber; she was Lady Pamela in "Fra Diavolo" on January 28, 1830, Madame Barneck in "L'ambassadrice" on December 21, 1936, and Jacinthe in "Le domino noir" on December 2, 1837. In addition, she was Gertrude from Ferdinando Paer's "Le Maitre de chapelle" on March 29, 1821 and the Marquise of Birkenfeld of Donizetti's comedy "La fille du Regiment" on February 11, 1840. All of the pieces she helped to introduce have over the years received occasional performances and partial recordings, but only "Fille", an opening night flop, has remained, due to its status as a tenor and coloratura show-off vehicle, a part of the standard repertoire. Gradually experiencing vocal decline, she reduced her schedule after 1835, left the stage in 1845, and remained a respected teacher. For a time married to cellist Frederic Boulanger, she was the mother of composer Ernest Boulanger and the grandmother of composers Nadia and Lili Boulanger. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
