Donatienne Michel-Dansac, Soprano
Donatienne Michel-Dansac began her musical studies at the age of seven in violin and piano at the National Conservatoire of the Nantes Region. When she was 11, she entered the choir school of the Nantes Opera and participated in various stage productions over eight seasons, often as soloist. In 1985, by unanimous vote of the jury, she was accepted at the Paris Conservatoire where she was awarded her ‘voice’ diploma in 1990.
In 1988, she performed Berio's „Laborynthus II” with the Ensemble Intercontemporain under the direction of Pierre Boulez. Since then, she has been guest soloist with several prestigious groups and at Festivals in France and abroad.
Not wishing to specialise in a particular music era, Donatienne Michel-Dansac performs French, Italian and German baroque music (with les Arts Florissants, for example), as well as Romantic and Classical repertoire in recital with Vincent Leterme. She has appeared on Radio-France, during the „Midis Musicaux" at the Théâtre du Châtelet, at the Opera-Bastille and Cité de la Musique in Paris, as well as the Academy of Fine Arts in Münich. Donatienne Michel-Dansac works in collaboration with the Centre de Documentation Pedagogique for television broadcasts and musical recordings.
