MONROSE (1783-1843), French actor, whose real name was Claude Louis Seraphin Barizain, was born in Besancon on the 6th of December 1783, and was already playing children's parts at the time of the Revolution. He was called to the Comedie Fran9aise in 1815, and was received societaire in 1817. A small, active man, with mobile and expressive features and quick, nervous gestures, he was noted as the rascally servant in such plays as Le Barbier de Seville and Les Fourberies de Scapin. His son, Louts MARTIAL BARIZAIN (1809-1883), also called Monrose, was also an actor. He succeeded Samson as professor at the Conservatoire in 1866.
