With Paul-Emile Deiber, the Comédie Française lost one of its most emblematic honorary members. Trained very young on the stage, a man of the theatre, he distinguished himself in all registers, from comedy to tragedy.
Actor and director, throughout his career, he revisited the
repertoire of the greatest classics, from Molière to Henry de Montherlant , from
Corneille to Eugène Labiche, with a freedom that belonged only to him.
Other scenes will regret where he brought his vision so personal that this
Odéon, the Paris Opera where he served as director of the
direction, or the Boulogne-Billancourt theatre.
We will keep the memory of his voice: ...a beautiful low voice
as Pierre Dux said when he handed her the French
Legion of Honour.
