Manon Lamaison

Soprano

Manon got her piano diploma and bachelor's degree in Musicology from La Sorbonne.  She then undertook vocal studies at the University of Montreal in Canada where she earned a bachelor's degree in lyric singing.  

She continued her studies with Mireille Delunsch at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon. While completing her Master's in singing, she participated in the inaugural edition of the Jaroussky Academy, directed by countertenor Philippe Jaroussky

She participated several years in the Landes Opera Festival. In 2018, she performed as Suzanne in "Le Nozze di Figaro" and in 2020, as Mélisande in "Pelléas et Mélisande". In 2022, she made her debut at the Aix-en-Provence Lyric Festival, where she was cast as the understudy for the role of Beatrice in "Il Viaggio, Dante" conducted by Kent Nagano, composed by Pascal Dusapin. That same year, Marc Minkowsky chose her to portray Barbarina in "Le Nozze di Figaro". In this role, she toured Europe for a year with Les Musiciens du Louvre, performing in Spain, Italy, Israel, and France, including at the Bordeaux and Versailles Operas.

For New Year's 2024, she performed as Cupidon in "Orphée aux Enfers" at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, again with Marc Minkowsky. In 2023, the Montpellier Opera House invited her to sing in "Szenen aus Goehtes Faust" by Schumann and for its opening concert of the 2023/2024 season.  She sang the role of Pamina in "Die Zauberflöte" for performances in Compiègne and Tourcoing with the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées. 

She is passionate about chamber music and the creation of eclectic and personal performances.  She collaborates with different musicians throughout the year to further her artistic goals. In 2019, she founded the ensemble Quatuor Ibai, which explores vocal music from the Renaissance to the present day. The ensemble is currently preparing a show based on the poems of French author Jacques Prévert. In residence with a mezzo and a tubist, she co-created "Dada'Opéra", an improvised show.

In 2022, she performed for the first time across the Atlantic in “Bon Voyage!” at the Marigny Opera House of New Orleans.  The show was a staged concert with local musicians that creatively blended Caribbean and European classical music, contemporary pieces, and traditional Yiddish songs.
