French opera singer, the leading high coloratura soprano of her generation in France, sometimes heralded as the successor to Mado Robin. Raymonde Blanc-Daurat was her teacher.

Mesplé made her professional debut in Liège in January 1953, as Lakmé, a role with which she remained closely associated throughout her career, singing it an estimated 145 times.

Mesplé also enjoyed a successful career abroad, appearing at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, the Royal Opera House in London, La Scala in Milan, the Metropolitan Opera in New York and Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires.

In the mid-1990s, Mesplé began suffering from Parkinson's Disease, leading her to work closely with the "Association France Parkinson" and to write a book, La Voix du Corps, about her career and the development of her illness. She died on 30 May 2020 at age 89 in her native town of Toulouse.
