About The Artist

In the premiere of a new production of La clemenza di Tito by Peter Sellars at the Salzburg Festival summarized as “a Mozartian apotheosis” by the Financial Times, soprano Jeanine De Bique earned standout praise for “the evening’s most heart-stopping moments of sheer vocal beauty” in the role of Annio. A finalist in the 2011 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, the native of Trinidad has cultivated a diverse repertoire with recent performances including Musetta in Puccini’s La bohème, Micaëla in Bizet’s Carmen, Sister Rose in Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking, and Clara in Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, as well as solos in Handel’s Messiah and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. De Bique will bring her “nuance and great expressivity” (Opera News) to Ravinia’s intimate stage for her Chicago debut.

Check out these clips of Jeanine De Bique singing Handel arias at the 2017 BBC Proms: “Da tempeste il legno infranto” from Giulio Cesare and “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion” from Messiah.
