Grammy nominated, Mezzo-Soprano, Marie-Claude Chappuis is well known for the beauty of her voice and dramatic interpretations. Next to the great ambitus of her voice, she also has excellent coloraturas, which allow her to sing repertoires from Monteverdi, Rossini, Mozart, Bellini, to Ravel, Poulenc and Ligeti. She is one of the most sought after mezzo-soprano in the baroque music world and also amazes audiences with her interpretations of Carmen, Charlotte (Massenet), Sesto (Mozart) and Marguerite (Berlioz). Chappuis is frequently performing at the Salzburg Festival and stages such as Theater an der Wien, Berliner Staatsoper and Zurich Opernhaus. She has participated in more than a dozen recordings and DVDs, most recently Clemenza di Tito and Finta Giardiniera with René Jacobs, St Matthew Passion with Riccardo Chailly, Idomeneo with Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Il Matrimonio inaspettato with Riccardo Muti.
