Historical Note

François Loup, the Swiss-born bass, actor, teacher, and director, has excelled in many roles throughout his long career. He is, however, best known for more than a half century of opera performance. Born in 1940, Loup overcame an early speech impediment to become a highly accomplished singer and performer who gave more than one hundred performances in prominent roles at the Metropolitan Opera of New York between 1992 and 2002. He has performed worldwide, from Santa Fe to Rio de Janeiro to Rouen. From 1996 to 2011, Loup was an associate professor at the University of Maryland's School of Music.
