Tenor Yann Beuron Announces Retirement

By Francisco Salazar

Tenor Yann Beuron has announced his retirement from the opera stage.

The French tenor, 51, announced via social media that “I have decided to end my job as a singer (without of course giving up my activity as part of the Masterclasses, which I love to share) and enjoy life differently. At almost 52 years old, I feel it’s time for a change.  The world premiere of “Soulier de Satin” at the Paris Bastille Opera next season will be my last participation in a stage production, Don Pelagius, my last role.”

He continued, “I started this profession in 1989. I was singing as a singer at the Rennes Opera. It has been a great privilege for me to perform and serve our music around the world, an ever-renewed joy.”

Beuron studied at the Conservatoire de Paris where he won first prize in singing and graduated in 1996.

He made his debut in 1995 at the Opéra national du Rhin; his Paris Opera debut would follow in 1996. He went on to become recognized for his interpretations of Mozart’s works and the French repertory. He went on to perform with all the major French companies including Lyon, Dijon, Lille, and Bordeaux.
