Swedish soprano Maria Keohane covers a wide range of music, from the baroque to contemporary compositions including chamber music, opera and oratorios.
She has performed in Peri’s Euridice (as Proserpino and L’Altra Ninfa) and in Monteverdi’s Il Ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria (as Melanto) at the Drottningholm Royal Court Theatre in Stockholm. She has also sung the part of Salome in Stradella’s oratorio San Giovanni Battista as well as the title rôle in Marais’ Alcione.
