Seguin, Anne Childe



English soprano, who sang with her husband, Arthur Edward S. Seguin, in all his British concerts from 1828 and was on the operatic stage from 1837. After singing for three seasons at the King's Theatre as second prima donna she appeared at Drury Lane in 1837 at Donna Anna in Don Giovanni. The same year she went with her husband to America, where she appeared with him in the first English operatic performance that was ever given in that country; this being in 1837, when she sang the role of Zerlina in Fra Diavolo at Boston. She also sang in New York in Rocke's Amilie, and appeared with her husband's troupe in many other cities of the United States. After her husband's death, Mrs. Seguin retired from the stage and taught music in New York. She died in that city in 1888.
