Bio






Héloïse is a French/American soprano based in Glasgow. After graduating from a Masters in French Literature in Paris, she has just graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, with Wilma MacDougall (2018).
Héloïse has performed with various early music ensembles profane and sacred repertoire in France, Estonia, and the Netherlands. She has been Dido, in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas with the Young Baroque Ensemble conducted by Reinut Tepp in Rapla and Tallinn, Estonia (2015). She has been Amore in L’incoronazione di Poppea, by Monteverdi, at the Macintosh Art Center in London, with the ensemble OrQuesta (2017). This summer, she was Susanna in Mozart’s Nozze di Figaro, with the Opera de Castellón.
Being very fond of chamber repertoire, she collaborates with pianist Jose Javier Ucendo, with whom they won the third prize in the Lied-duo competition in 2016 in Tallinn. They will be part of the 2018 academy of the Oxford Lieder Festival.
She is one of the founders, alongside with soprano Jasmine Munns, of the company daïmon, who aims to perform modern and contemporary works as well as more classical repertoire in staged recitals, in English.
She enjoys performing contemporary repertoire and collaborates closely with young composers such as Electra Perivolaris.
She was a member of the chorus for The Fiery Angel by Prokofiev, in collaboration with the Scottish Opera, as well as in The day After by Jonathan Dove, staged by the creative team of the ENO.
She’s looking forward to performing as Lucy England in Menotti’s Telephone next winter in Paisley, UK.
