Pol Plançon

Pol Plançon (1851–1914) was a great French operatic bass who made his Paris debut in 1883 as Mephistopheles in Gounod's Faust. His American debut was at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1893. He sang at the Met for twelve non-consecutive seasons. Plançon recorded for Victor between 1903 and 1908, when he retired from the stage. He was known for his beautiful tone and near-flawless technique.
