Nominated at the 2023 Victoires de la musique classique in the Revelation opera singer category, Marine Chagnon is a French mezzo-soprano with an eclectic career path. After modern-jazz dance, singing and dramatic art, she dedicated her time to opera with a Master's Degree at the Paris Conservatoire in Elene Golgevit's class. She then joined the Paris Opera Academy and won several awards, including the Young Performer's Prize at the Mâcon Competition, the Special Jury Prize at the Canari Competition, and, in 2023, the AROP and the Carpeaux Awards. Fascinated by words, it’s mostly through early music that she first discovered the stage with the role of Euridice (L’Orfeo) at the Dijon Opera, and the title role in La Giuditta at la Grange au Lac, La Chaise Dieu and the Auditorium du Louvre, and the title role in L'incoronazione di Poppea at the Athénée Théâtre Louis-Jouvet and the Opéra / Grand Théâtre in Dijon, with the Paris Opera Academy.

Her beginning career took her to the Opéra national de Bordeaux (Kate Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly), Opéra national de Lorraine (Flora in La Traviata), the Paris Philharmonie (Olympe la Rebelle), Opéra de Vichy (Second Lady in The Magic Flute), Cité des Congrès in Nantes (Closing concert of La Folle Journée de Nantes) and again at the Athénée Théâtre Louis-Jouvet with the Paris Opera Academy (Lucilla in La Scala di seta). Her first album for Mirare, "Ljus", with pianist Joséphine Ambroselli, features Swedish melodies from the first half of the 20th century. Marine Chagnon is a member of the Paris Opera Company for the 2023-2024 season.
