« 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. »

Online Musik Magazin - Costanza/Riccardo Primo, HÄNDEL

BIOGRAPHY

Young mezzo-soprano with a lush and rare timbre, Marielou Jacquard obtained with success and distinction a Master’s degree in Opera at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler (Berlin) in Christine Schäfer’s class. She studied over-there 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 by interpreting her first role, Flora, in The Turn of the Screw by B. Britten, at the Dijon opera in 2002-2003. After that, she incarnated l’ange in Ursule1.1 by Morgan Jourdain, directed by Benjamin Lazare and conducted by Geoffroy Jourdain at the Quimper Theater.


In 2014, conductor Wolfgang Katschner noticed her because of her musicality and vocal agility. He 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. This is the beginning of an affinity with baroque music which asserts a little more every day. The same year, during a residency under René Jacobs at Royaumont, she played Nerone in the Incoronazione di Poppea by Monteverdi.


As an eclectic artist, Marielou is also deeply involved in contemporary creation. She has been invited to perform at the  Tischlerei of the Deutsche Oper Berlin as well as at the Werkstatt of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden for two world creations - My corporate Identity by Thierry Tidrow and Abstract Pieces by Manos Tsangaris. She is dedicatee of several pieces, notably Le Coeur Crucifié by Héloise Werner.


Over the past few years, she has performed at the Festival d’Aix en Provence Academy, at the Royal Chapel of Versailles, at the Ambronay Festival and at the Musica Sacra Festival in Quito (Ecuador). In Berlin, she has sung at the Tacheles, the Radial System, and the Konzerthaus.


Recently, she played with temperament the young Cherubin in Mozart's Marriage of Figaro in a French tour of Opéra Eclaté, the 3rd camerist in Le Nain by Zemlinsky at the Lille, rennes and Caen operas and Lady MacBeth in a creation by guitarist and composer Marc Ducret at the Lille Opera. She recently embodied the role of Apollo in Coronis by Sebastian Duron with the Poème Harmonique at the Caen Theater and on tour in France, and she sang the role of Garcias in Don Quichotte by Massenet at the Tours Opera. 


Her  « very resonant voice, with a solid anchor, and the prosody of storyteller, souple and well articulated » (Olyrix, Charles Arden), leads her naturally to the art of recital. She participated in the inaugural promotion of the l’académie de Lied et Mélodie Orsay-Royaumont and gave numerous recitals, in particular with the pianist Kunal Lahiry at the Musée d'Orsay, at the auditorium of the Auditorium du Petit Palais -Récital Jeunes Talents- and in the framework of the Concertini at the Monnaie in Bruxelles.


Passionate about acting skills, she has interpreted at the theater the roles of Sascha, Ivanov’s lover, in the eponymous play by Tchekhov, and of Hitler in Germania by Heiner Müller at the Arts Academy of Berlin.

The 2020-2021 season is full of surprises - cancellations but also new inspiring projects - and breathes into the young artist a renewed creativity in the face of the health situation which is having an unprecedented impact on the cultural sector.

 

With the Cris de Paris, she will perform in several festivals : Ambronay, Abbaye en Lorraine and Chaise Dieu which, failing to be able to play in summer, will open their doors in fall to residences and concerts in small formation. In this tour-residence, she will play the role of Juno in Acteon by Charpentier. This tour will conclude with a recording of the opera, directed by Benjamin Lazare. Among the major events of 2021, we can note Cavalli's Egisto at the Royal Opera of Versailles in concert with the Harmonic Poem, as well as a tour of La Fontaine's Fables, whose 400th anniversary is celebrated in 2021, harmonized by Offenbach with the Picardy orchestra. She will also give numerous recitals with the pianist Kunal Lahiry, as well as contemporary music concerts, notably with the collective Art for Art in Germany.

 
« 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. »
