Alcina (saison 21/22)

For her Paris Opera debut, Jeanine de Bique sings the character of Alcina in Handel's opera of the same name, directed by Robert Carsen. The soprano discusses the complex feelings and emotions that run through the female characters and which reinforce the work's relevance today. The role of the enchantress Alcina is a great source of inspiration for Jeanine de Bique, who underlines the score's dissonances and harmonic abundance.
