IMG Artists is delighted to welcome soprano Claire de Sévigné to its roster for general management. She will be represented by Vice President and Artist Manager Isabella Gage from the company’s London office. She is represented in North America by Dean Artists.
Named one of CBC’s “Top Young Canadian Classical Musicians”, soprano Claire de Sévigné was recently nominated for a Classical Album of the Year JUNO award for her Naxos album of Vivaldi Cantatas with Kevin Mallon and the Aradia Ensemble. Recent successes have come with the Canadian Opera Company, Savonlinna Opera Festival, Opernhaus Zürich and Théâtre des Champs-Élysées as Blonde in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, in which she was hailed for her “sparkling top notes and vocal brilliance, lightness and finesse.”
Recent and forthcoming highlights include singing Cunegonde in Candide for the Grand Théâtre de Genève, La Fée in Massenet’s Cendrillon for the Lucerne Festival and as Adele in Die Fledermaus for Anger Nantes Opéra and Opéra d’Avignon.
Claire said, “I am so thrilled to be working with the talented Isabella Gage and feel honored to be joining this incredible roster of artists. I look forward to the many musical collaborations that the future has in store for us!”
Isabella said, ‘I couldn’t be more delighted to be working with the exceptionally talented Claire de Sévigné. We are privileged to have her with us, and I very much look forward to our collaboration.”
