Marie Rôze was sent to England to be educated when she was twelve years old. After her return to France she studied with Mocker and Auber at the Conservatory in Paris. In 1865 she won the first prize in singing. She debuted at the Opéra-Comique in the same year. Her succesful performances earned her an engagement at the Opera of Paris. Bizet intended her for his opera "Carmen" but she refused the part.

From 1876 she worked in the UK with the Carl Rosa Opera company for ten years. On 8 January 1878 she made her American debut in Philadelphia as Leonora in Donizetti's "La favorita". From 1883 to 1889 she toured in the USA with the Carl Rosa Opera Company. In 1889 she started a singing school in Paris.

Her first husband was the opera singer Julius E. Perkins. Their son Raymond was a conductor and composer. Her second husband was a son of the impresario James Henry Mapleson (1830-1901). She died in 1926 in Paris.
