Jean Capiaux

For a first prizewinner, remarkably little is known about Paris born baritone Jean Capiaux. He was 25 years young at the time of his victory in Den Bosch, and studied singing with the famous Swiss baritone Charles Panzera, and by Louis Musy of the Paris Opera Comique. He graduated from the French Conservatory and obtained none less than 4 more diplomas in singing. At the time of the contest, he was married to the French chansonnière Fabienne Lore. On his career post the IVC victory, nothing is know.
