« Marielou Jacquard embodies Costanza with a supple voice that highlights the character’s profound sensitivity. Her musicality and extremely well-done piani allow her to express Costanza’s deep suffering. »

BIOGRAPHY

Marielou Jacquard is a young french mezzo-soprano with a rare, lush timbre. She recently finished her Master’s degree in Opera at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler (Berlin) in Christine Schäfer’s class. Among others, she also studied with KS Julia Varady, Wolfram Rieger for Lied and Peter Berne for Bel Canto.

 

At a very early age, as she was a member of the Maitrise de Radio France, Marielou discovered her passion for music and stage acting. In 2002-2003, she interpreted her first role, Flora, in The Turn of the Screw by B. Britten, at the Dijon opera.

 

In 2014, conductor Wolfgang Katschner noticed her and chose her to play the part of Costanza in Händel’s Riccardo Primo at the Händelfestpiele Halle and the Ludwigsburger Festspiele in a Lautten Compagney production. That same year, during a residency under René Jacobs at Royaumont, she played Nerone in the Incoronazione di Poppea by Monteverdi.

 

Over the past few years, she has performed at the Royal Chapel of Versailles, the Ambronay Festival, and the Musica Sacra Festival in Quito (Ecuador). She took part in the prestigious Academy at the Festival d’Aix en Provence. In Berlin, she has sung at the Tacheles, the Radial System, and the Konzerthaus. She recently sang the role of the 3. Chambermaid in Der Zwerg by Zemlinsky at the Opera de Lille, Theatre de Caen, and Opera de Renne.

 

Marielou is an artist with eclectic tastes and is committed to contemporary creation. She made her debut at the Deutsche Oper Berlin (Tischlerei) and Staatsoper Unter den Linden (Wekstatt) for two World Premieres: My Corporate Identity by Thierry Tidrow and Abstract Pieces by Manos Tsangaris . She works also in close collaboration with the Opera Lab collective, an ensemble specialised in contemporary music. 

 

Appreciated for her playfullness on stage, she has enjoyed a great success as « a vibrant Cherubino, full of desire » (la dépêche du midi) in a French tour with the Opéra Éclaté company. Her interest for acting goes beyond music to pure theater. She has interpreted Sascha, Ivanov’s lover, in the eponymous play by Tchekhov, and Hitler in Germania by Heiner Müller  at the Arts Academy of Berlin. 

 

With her « very resonant voice, with a solid anchor, and the prosody of storyteller, souple and well articulated » (Olyrix, Charles Arden), Marielou developed a close affinity to chamber music.  She has appeared in recital at the Opera de Lille, La Monnaie in Bruxelles, Petit Palais, and Musée d’Orsay in Paris, to name a few. She was selected, along with pianist Kunal Lahiry, as one of four duos for the first academy of melody and lieder at the Royaumont Abbey and Musée D’Orsay, a year-long residency culminating in a live album recording with B Records.

Among her 2019-2020 commitments are a French tour with the Poeme Harmonique as Apollo in Duron’s baroque Zarzuela Coronis; she will later sing Garcias in Don Quichotte by Massenet at the Opera de Tour and also take part in the contemporary music festival Rainy Days. Aside from these engagements, she will appear regularly in recital at prestigious venues across Europe, including the Wigmore Hall in London.

 
« The duet with the Marielou Jacquard's Apollo is very precise, their two voices marrying wonderfully. The latter, arched legs, asserts a comic presence which is found in the theatricality of her phrasing and the brilliance of her voice. »
