On this page I am constantly compiling a list of actresses who have played and understudied the role of Madame Giry in worldwide Andrew Lloyd Webber Phantom productions. Much credit must be given to the webmistress of Madame Giry's Conservetoire, however, as she runs the original online Mme Giry list with biographies for many of the actressess listed here on her wonderful site.

I have tried to gather the names, production citys/tours, and countries that each actress has portrayed the role in, (as well as biographies when available!) and am always looking for more names and biographies! If you have any information that could contribute to this list, please contact me!

Introducing, the Appendix, an addition to the International Giry pages, with bits and pieces of info about Madame Giry's in other theatrical productions, movies, and media.
