Jobin, Raoul

(b Quebec, 8 April 1906; d Quebec, 13 Jan 1974). Canadian tenor. He studied first in Quebec, then in Paris. There Busser engaged him for the Opéra, where he made his début as Gounod’s Tybalt in 1930 and sang minor roles for two years. After two seasons in Bordeaux, he returned to the Opéra in 1935; there he sang Romeo, Faust, Raoul and Lohengrin, and created Fabrice in Sauguet’s Chartreuse de Parme (1939). At the Opéra-Comique he sang Don José, Julien, Werther, Hoffmann, Massenet’s Des Grieux and Cavaradossi. He left France in 1939 and made his Metropolitan début in 1940 as Des Grieux, later singing Tonio (La fille du régiment), Faust, Don José, Romeo, Pelléas and Canio. He also sang Gérald (Lakmé) in San Francisco (1940) and Don José in Chicago (1941). He returned to the Opéra, where his roles (1949–52) included Mârouf, Walther, Radames and Boito’s Faust. On retirement he opened a singing school in Montreal. His firm, bright-toned voice and enthusiastic style can be heard to advantage in a number of recordings, notably as Don José, Romeo, Hoffmann and Tonio, and as Admetus (opposite Flagstad) in Gluck’s Alceste.
