Marie Constance Sasse (26 January 1834 8 November 1907) was a Belgian operatic soprano. "Her voice was powerful, flexible, and appealing", and she was one of the leading sopranos at the Paris Opéra from 1860 to 1870. She created the roles of Elisabeth in the Paris premiere of Wagner's Tannhäuser, Sélika in the world premiere of Meyerbeer's L'Africaine, and Elisabeth de Valois in the world premiere of Verdi's Don Carlos. Born Marie Constance Sasse in Oudenaarde, to a father who was a military band-master, she studied music at the Ghent Conservatory with François-Auguste Gevaert and in Milan with Francesco Lamperti, and made her debut in Venice as Gilda in Verdi's Rigoletto in 1852.
