Marie Rôze, born Marie Hippolyte Ponsin (1846-1926); French soprano.
She studied singing at the Conservatoire National de Paris with Mocker and Auber. In 1865 she made her debut at the Opéra-Comique in Herold’s opera “Marie”.
In 1868 she created the role of Djelma in Auber’s “Le premier jour de bonheur” and in 1870 the role of Jeanne in Von Flotow’s “L’ombre”. For a long period she worked with the Carl Rosa Opera Company and toured the United Kingdom and the United States of America. In 1890 she set up a music school and taught singing in Paris. She made her farewell tour in 1894. Her first marriage was with the opera singer Julius (Julio) Perkins (1845-1875) and her second marriage with opera impresario James Henry Mapleson.

On the photo she is seen as Manon in Massenet's eponymous opera.
