Franca Duval

Franca Duval was born in 1925 in New York of Italian parents. Following her début in San Francisco, she appeared at La Scala, Milan, in 1950 in Sutermeister’s Raskolnikoff. She continued to sing at La Scala for several years: her parts there included Zerlina in Don Giovanni and Blonde in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, and she substituted for both Callas and Tebaldi as Violetta in La traviata. From 1957 her career was focused upon France, with appearances in Lille, Nice, Rouen, and Vichy, as well as in Algiers (1957–58), and at the Opéra-Comique in Paris (1959–60). She appeared as Tosca opposite Franco Corelli in an Italian Television film of the opera made in 1956. Her later years were devoted to Broadway appearances and to teaching.
