Biography

 

After studying with Rachel Yakar, Peggy Bouveret and Margreet Honig, Salomé Haller rapidly distinguished herself on the baroque stage. Since 1995, she has been recording and giving concerts in France and abroad with ensembles such as Le Parlement de Musique, Concerto Köln, Les Talens Lyriques, Le Concert Sprirituel, I Barocchisti and Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin.

 

In 1999, she makes her Berlin Staatsoper debut singing Hasse’s Solimano under the baton of René Jacobs. The following season, she returned to sing Scarlatti’s Griselda and Keiser’s Croesus. With Maestro Jean-Claude Malgoire, she sang Donna Elvira in 2001, and Mistress Ford (Salieri’s Falstaff) in 2002 with the Atelier Lyrique de Tourcoing.

Following seasons, she sang at the Opéra de Nice (Vivaldi’s Rosmira Fedele), Lausanne (Lully’s Roland), Rennes (Agrippina), Rouen (Véronique), Théâtre du Châtelet (Dazzi’s Luthier de Venise) and at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées. She made her debut in Brussels at the Monnaie with the First Lady (Zauberflöte) also touring in New York with that production. She worked with other reputed conductors such as Marc Minkowski at the Opéra de Paris in 2006 singing Diane( Iphigénie en Tauride) and with Emmanuelle Haïm in the Opéra de Lille singing Médée (Lully’s Thésée). She experimented Wagner at the Châtelet with Die Feen, and then appeared as Annio (La Clemenza di Tito) at the Grand Théâtre in Tours, La Folie (Platée) in Opéra du Rhin, Dorothée (Massenet’s Cendrillon) at Comique-Opéra and in Vienna, Bellangère (Ariane et Barbe-Bleue) at the Barcelona Liceu and Diane (Iphigénie en Tauride / Aulide) in Amsterdam Opera. Later, she performed Oenone (Hippolyte et Aricie) in Opéra de Paris, Flora (La Traviata) in Brussels Monnaie, the Mother’s voice (Les Contes d’Hoffmann) at the Liceo, the Forester’s Wife (The Cunning little Vixen) in Lille. Later, she sang the roles of Marcellina (Nozze di Figaro) and Zita (Gianni Schicchi) on tour, Geneviève (Pelléas et Mélisande) with Malgoire, Zweite Magd and Schleppträgerin (Elektra) at the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux.

 

Always eager to learn and discover, she sang in concerts with John Nelson, Peter Oetvös, Armin Jordan, Christoph Eschenbach, Daniel Kawka, Pierre Boulez and l’Ensemble Inter-Contemporain in works such as Haydn’s Isola Disabitata, Messiaen’s Poèmes pour Mi, Berlioz’s Nuits d’été, Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire. She often goes back to her first crush on ancient music, performing with the ensemble La Chapelle Rhénane. In addition to have sung with the Quatuor Ysaÿe and the Quatuor Manfred, Salomé Haller recorded «Das irdische Leben» with her collaborative pianist Nicolas Krüger, winning them both a «diapason découverte».

 

Recently, she performed Marcellina (Le Nozze di Figaro) with the Freiburger Barockorchester, and Ismene (Telemann’s Orpheus) with B’rock Orchestra, both projects under René Jacobs’s baton.
