Soprano of Elegance and Passion.
Born into a Belgian-German Family of Mozart enthusiasts in Heidelberg, Eleonore Marguerre studied singing at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. In addition she studied Labour law, economics, and history at the Technical University in Darmstadt.
To arouse enthusiasm for classical music in other people is her greatest wish – which is why she launched the first opera guide podcast “Leonore &Fidelio” (in German mostly) in 2017 and is very involved in the field of music education.
Having won prizes in competitions such as the Leyla Gencer Voice Competition or the Boris Christoff competition Mrs. Marguerre went on to appear on the major stages of Europe including Teatro alla Scala in Milan (Venus in Ascanio in Alba), La Fenice in Venice (Juliette) and the Vienna State Opera.
