Dinh Gilly (July 19, 1877 – May 19, 1940) was a French-Algerian operatic baritone and teacher.


He studied in Toulouse, Rome (with Antonio Cotogni), and at the Paris Conservatoire, where he won a premier prix in 1902. That same year he made his debut at the Paris Opera as Silvio in Leoncavallo's Pagliacci. In 1908 he left the Paris Opera and from 1909 to 1914 he performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. He also sang at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and later taught in London. His students there included Dennis Noble.

He made about 40 gramophone recordings which show him to have been a stylish and intelligent singer.[1]
