Marie Grisier-Montbazon (1889)


French stage and silent film actress and mezzo-soprano operetta singer, the daughter of Hippolyte Livergne, an actor known by the name of Montbazon, and Emilie Hody, also an actress.

She first obtained brilliant success at the Théâtre des Bouffes-Parisiens in December 1880 playing Bettina in the comic opera (in 3 acts) La Mascotte (The Mascot) by Henri Chivot and Alfred Duru, with music composed by Edmond Audran, a student of Ménager and Camille Saint-Saëns. Throughout her career, Madame Montbazon was haunted by this role that she played eight hundred times in Paris, in the provinces and abroad, and was always asked to play, on all these stages, in spite of her specific commitment that she would not play La Mascotte again.

In every scene and role in which she appeared, Madame Montbazon knew how to make herself appreciated. In her role as Gillette, thanks to her well-timed mezzo voice, Mme. Montbazon was particularly acclaimed.

She died in Paris on 18 October 1922, aged 63.
