Marie Heilbron was the daughter of Dutch Jews. She debuted as a singer when she was eight years old and she was educated in Brussels and in Paris. In 1866 she first performed at the Théâtre-Italien in Paris. In 1868 she was engaged at the Opéra-Comique. From 1869 to 1870 she was employed by the Koninklijke Schouwburg in The Hague.

After several years without an engagement and the birth of a daughter in 1871 she returned to the Théâtre-Italien in 1873. She also performed in London, Russia and the United States. In 1879 the Opéra Garnier in Paris contracted her. In the same year she also appeared at La Scala in Milan and this resulted in the termination of her contract in Paris. In 1881 she married Edmond, vicomte de la Panouse. She left the stage, but returned in 1882 after Edmund lost his fortune. Her husband recognised her daughter although he was not the father. She was only 35 years old when she died in 1886 in Nice of pleurisy.
