Mezzo Soprano

Juliette de Banes Gardonne, a French mezzo-soprano of Italian origin, graduated from a soloist Master’s degree with the Haute École de Musique de Genève (Geneva HEM) and holds a Diploma of Advanced Studies from the Haute École de Musique de Lausanne (Lausanne HEMU). She took the master classes of Bernarda Fink, Stéphanie d’Oustrac and Sara Mingardo.

Juliette de Banes Gardonne was granted a scholarship from the SIGG Foundation in 2011 and from the Ernst Göhner Foundation in 2012. She was a resident of the Centre National d’Insertion Professionnelle des Artistes Lyriques (CNIPAL) in 2012-2013. She also won the Migros Culture Percentage in 2013-2014. The color of her voice and her ability to produce beautiful vocalizations naturally led her to the baroque repertoire and to Rossini’s operas. She was a finalist in international contests such as F. Provenzale of the Cappella dei Turchini in Naples in 2013 and the Froville baroque singing competition in 2015.

As an alto soloist, she performed Monteverdi’s Madrigali guerrieri ed amorosi, Carissimi’s Historia di Jephte, Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, Bach’s St John Passion, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and Brahms’ Liebeslieder und neue Liebeslieder. As far as opera is concerned, she performed as the public opinion in Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld (BFM, Genève), as Meg in Verdi’s Falstaff (Sorru Festival), as Lapak in Janacek’s The Cunning Little Vixen (Crochetan theater in Monthey), as Mademoiselle Dangeville in Cilèa’s Adriana Lecouvreur (Opéra de Nice), as Javotte in Massenet’s Manon (Opéra de Lausanne), as Maddalena in Verdi’s Rigoletto (Centre Lyrique Clermont-Auvergne) and, in a concert performance, as the lead in Purcell’s Dido and Eneas (Cappella Genevensis).

She is also intensely working on baroque music and the unprecedented repertoire of the Neapolitan composer Cristofaro Caresana. With the Italian musicians Paola Erdas, Alberto Guerrero and Franco Pavan, she created the “Ensemble Démesure”. Her “Trésors du baroque napolitain” project (Neapolitan baroque treasures) enabled her to be scheduled as a new talent in the Rougemont Folia baroque festival in 2015.

In 2016, she will notably be Marianna in Rossini’s Il Signor Bruschino with the Geneva’s chamber orchestra, and Dulcinée in Massenet’s Don Quichotte at the Théâtre du passage in Neuchâtel. She is also in the process of recording her first album dedicated to Caresana with the Ensemble Démesure.
