“Belgian soprano Elise Caluwaerts impressed with her supple sense of line and strength, displaying a soaring, pure-toned top register and richly colored lower register. “(The Australian)
We are happy to invite Belgian talent Soprano Elise Caluwaerts, thanks to her versatility and engaging personality, grew into a much sought-after soloist at home and abroad. She started her singing career as a baroque singer and expanded her repertoire to romantic and contemporary music. Her love for challenging repertoire – from opera to multidisciplinary projects – led to numerous creations and special collaborations with internationally renowned composers and ensembles. Her remarkable rendition of Lei in Pascal Dusapin’s room opera Passion during the Sydney Festival 2016 was praised by the press. Elise also released a CD at the end of 2016 with spectacular coloratura repertoire at the invitation of the St-Petersburg Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Walter Proost. This recording was a springboard for new international projects such as Mozart’s Don Giovanni (Donna Elvira) with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra conducted by David Stern and the creation of Enjott Schneider’s opera Marco Polo directed by Kasper Holten in Guanghzou Opera (China) in May 2018 Elise also looks forward to her residency at the Center for Contemporary Opera in New York during the 2018-2019 season.
