Une Chatte Métamorphosée En Femme - Offenbach Arias
La Mort de Socrate + mélodies
Over the last few years the young Swiss Soprano Sarah Pagin has developed an acclaimed reputation for her work as a lyric soprano in both the opera houses and recital halls across Europe. Most recently Sarah appeared in the lead role of the critically revered production of “Phi-Phi” by Henri Christiné. Produced by the Lausanne Opera House, Sarah’s performance was hailed as “remarkable in vocal and stage presence”.
Born in to a highly musical family, Sarah completed her formative education and training at the Conservatoire Supérieur de Musique in Geneva and has since developed an ongoing and close relationship with teacher Magali Schwartz.
In recent seasons performance highlights have included consecutive appearances at the Radio France Festival, Mozart arias conducted by Eliahou Inbal in Florence’s Teatro Verdi, Grieg’s Peer Gynt and Beethoven’s Egmont conducted by Yoel Levi at the Salle Pleyel in Paris and Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang at the Victoria Hall in Geneva.
Sarah has been a frequent guest artist with the Orchestre National de Montpellier Languedoc-Roussillon in both an operatic and concert setting with repertoire that included “Gontran” in Chabrier’s “Education manquée” and the worldwide première of Gérard Calvi’s “ La Cantatrice Chauve”.
Sarah’s wide repertoire includes an active interest in contemporary and 20th Century music and has seen her perform works by Frank Martin, Kurt Weill, Claude Debussy, Francis Poulenc, Gérard Calvi and Benjamin Ellin. In 2012 Sarah also performed at the Commemoration of the Holocaust Day at the United Nations.
