Marie Lenormand


Masterful French mezzo-soprano Marie Lenormand has been praised for her performances on the operatic and concert stage. After completing a dazzling turn in the title role in Ambroise Thomas’ Mignon at l’Opéra comique de Paris, her performance was met with popular and critical accolades. In recognition of her portrayal, the French national press awarded her the honor of “2010 Musical Revelation.” She was the first vocal artist in six years to win the award after a string of renowned conductors and a string quartet.

Engagements for the 2019-2020 season included Testament de la Tante Caroline with the Théâtre Imperial de Compiègne, Les P’tites Michu with l’Opéra de Tours, Marcellina in Le nozze di Figaro with l’Opéra de Lorraine, Meg Page in Falstaff with l’Opéra de Montpellier, Gertrude in Roméo et Juliette in concert with Montpellier and the Théâtre des Champs Elysées, and a reprise of the Petite Balade aux Enfers with l’Opéra Comique. This season sees her as Popotte in Offenbach’s Le Voyage dans la Lune with Opéra de Montpellier and Opéra de Toulon, Jacinthe in Auber’s Le Domino Noir with Opéra de Lausanne, Marguerite in Boieldieu’s La Dame Blanche with Opéra de Limoges, and Bachis in Offenbach’s La Belle Hélène with Paris’s Théâtre des Champs Elysées and with the Orchestre National de Lille.
