Jeanine De Bique

General Management
Jeanine De Bique has been described as „one of the most exciting sopranos to catch onstage these days. Animated, joyful, and technically flawless, the Trinidadian vocalist with the light, starry voice that soars before landing on audiences’ ears like a musical meteor shower“ (Operawire) and a “sheer endless wealth of colour and nuances[…] a radiant, free-floating timbre.” (Opernwelt)

Highlights in 2022-23 include the return to the Opéra National de Paris as Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro, to the Salzburger Festspiele for the production of Indian Queen under the baton of Teodor Currrentzis, to Theater an der Wien as Nicrotis in a new production of Handel’s Belshazzar by Marie-Eve Signeyrole and give her house and role debut at Opernhaus Zurich as Isabel in George Benjamin’s Lessons in Love and Violence.
In the US, she will perform Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 with the Dallas Symphony, arias by Weber with the New World Symphony, Poulenc’s Stabat Mater with the St Louis Symphony Orchestra and Mozart’s Requiem with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Manfred Honeck. Ms De Bique is also looking forward to returning to the BBC PROMS at the end of the season in Schumann’s Das Paradies und die Peri with Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra.

Mirrors, Ms De Bique’s first solo-CD with Concerto Köln was released by Berlin Classics in 2021 to outstanding reviews. The album received the 2022 Opus Klassik Award for best solo recording Vocal, a Diapason d’Or découverte, the Edison Klassiek award as well as the Editor’s Choice award in Gramophone, Fono Forum and Opera Magazines earlier this year. The programme was presented this year in Europe and further performances follow this season in the US, including Carnegie Hall in New York.
