VÉRONIQUE GENS

Having dominated the international baroque scene over the last years, the French soprano Véronique Gens today is also regarded as one of the world’s finest Mozart singers. Since her successful début in 1986 with William Christie’s Les Arts Florissants she established an outstanding reputation especially in baroque music, she regularly performs with top specialists in this field such as Marc Minkowski, Philippe Herreweghe, René Jacobs, Christophe Rousset and William Christie.

She performed at the Barcelona Liceu and in Aix-en-Provence with René Jacobs, sang Haydn’s Orfeo in La Coruña and Honegger’s Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher at the Salzburg Festival, among many other notable performances. Recent appearances include Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni at the Teatro del Liceu in Barcelona, and Vitellia in La clemenza di Tito at the Semper Oper in Dresden. She has also appeared in Così fan tutte and as Donna Elvira at the Madrid Teatro Real, in Pelléas et Mélisande at the Berlin Deutsche Oper, in La finta gardiniera in Salzburg, and in Lully’s Alceste at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées.

In concert she has appeared in concerts and recitals in Amsterdam, Dresden, Copenhagen, Luxemburg, Salzburg, Lisbon, at the Wigmore Hall in London, at the Lincoln Centre in New York and at the Tanglewood Festival. Chosen Singer of the Year 1999 by the French Victoires de la Musique, she has over sixty recordings to her credit, with a repertoire ranging from Purcell, Handel and Scarlatti to Berlioz and to Ravel.
