Marie-Claire op ten Noort studied at the Conservatoire of Utrecht in the Netherlands from 2008-2011. She started singing as a lyric/jugendlich dramatic soprano with the American tenor James McCray in 2011 where she developed a warm middle voice with a soaring top taking on varied repertoire that suits her voice.

She has worked with various coaches and conductors such as Richard Hetherington, Wiebke Göetjes, Jonathan Santagada, David Harper, Nicoletta Conti, Andrea Cappelleri and followed masterclasses with Eva-Maria Westbroek and Montserrat Caballé.

Coming winter/spring she'll be singing Sesto and Emilia with Kent Opera in Deal and London.
This will be followed throughout 2017 with performances of Mme Lidoine, der Komponist and Hänsel with Hojotoho Opera Studio at various locations in the Netherlands and Octavian in the future with Kent Opera in the UK.
In 2016 Marie-Claire sang Puccini's Mimì in La Bohème in the Nassaukerk, Amsterdam and Annio at various locations in London. Marie-Claire was a regular guest soloist in 2015 at the Dutch Church, Austin Friars, London, at which in April 2015 she had the honour of singing for Princess Beatrix, the former Queen of the Netherlands.
In July 2015 she sang with Handmade Opera scenes of Le nozze di Figaro as Countess Almaviva at various locations in Italy. She sang at the ARCH charity fundraising concert at Dunsborough Park, Ripley in April 2015. With Hojotoho Opera Studio she has progressed from small roles to main roles performing at various locations throughout the Netherlands. Whilst progressing through to the 2nd round of Boito's Mefistofele competition at Opera Krakow, 2014, she studied the roles and performed the arias of Margherita and Elena. During September 2013 she competed in the Montserrat Caballé
competition in Zaragoza, Spain and was an active participant in the masterclasses following the competition. Other performances have included recitals for the Diplomatic Women's Society, The Hague, chamber opera performances with Salone dell'Opera, and concerts throughout the summer academy of the Peter de Grote Festival, Groningen.
At the Conservatoire she sang in several Oratorio and Lieder concerts, with various ensembles.
Opera performances at the Conservatoire include roles of Romeo, Annio and Cherubino.
During her studies in Utrecht she was generously supported by the Ridderschap van Utrecht.
