Ranck was a porter at the Central Market in Paris; only in 1950, he started to take voice lessons. After brief training, he was accepted into the choir of the Opéra-Comique, where in 1953 he was promoted to soloist, singing Turiddu, Canio, Pinkerton, Cavaradossi, Julien (Louise) and Don José. At the Opéra, he made his debut in 1960 as a comprimario.
