Michel Caron (29 April 1929 in Sèvres - 3 September 2001 in Le Mesnil-Simon, Eure-et-Loir) was a French operatic tenor and stage actor. He sang in operettas like The White Horse Inn (1960) and opéra-bouffe La Périchole with Jean Le Poulain and Roger Carel, and Barbe Bleue with Jean Le Poulain and Arlette Didier (1968). From childhood, Michel Caron wanted to become an actor. He entered the René Simon class, then the Conservatoire de Paris where he won three first prizes: opera, comic opera and operetta. Caron's career began at the Théâtre du Châtelet to perform Guy Florès during a revival of The White Horse Inn (1960/1961). He was then at the top of the bill for two plays of opéra-bouffe, performed in 1968, La Périchole with Jean Le Poulain and Roger Carel and Barbe Bleue with Jean Le Poulain and Arlette Didier.
