Biography

Mezzo-soprano Lise Nougier’s musical life started out with piano lessons in her native Ardèche. She discovered singing with Marina Venant at the Valence Conservatoire. Already fascinated by drama, she combined her singing studies with a Joint Degree in Modern Literature and Drama.

Another key factor in her musical development was her encounter with Nicole Corti, whose Jeune Choeur Symphonique she joined in 2011. She then joined the professional Spirito ensemble, with performances at the Lyon Auditorium, Notre-Dame de la Salette during the Messiaen Festival, and La Côté Saint-André for the Berlioz Festival. These projects enriched her vocal technique, homogeneity of timbre and musical style, and were a chance for her to sing under such distinguished conductors as François-Xavier Roth, Léonard Slatkin and Emmanuel Krivin.

In 2016, aged 21, she gained a place in Chantal Mathias’ singing class at the Paris Conservatoire (Conservatoire Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris). Favourites amongst the roles she has studied are Rosina (Il Barbiere di Siviglia), Siebel (Faust), Cherubino (Le Nozze di Figaro) and Conception (L’Heure espagnole). In 2019 she appeared as Ernesto in Il Mondo della Luna, directed by Tito Checcherini, with staging by Marc Paquien, and in Suzanne in Offenbach’s Un mari à la porte, staged by Vincent Vittoz. She also joined the Plein jour company to play Dorabella in a show based on Mozart’s Così fan tutte, which toured throughout France.

Lise has developed a strong predilection for mélodies and Lieder, founded upon a thorough training in Anne Le Bozec’s class at the Paris Conservatoire. Her particular sensitivity to French poetry has led her to explore the song repertoire of Debussy, Chausson, Fauré, Caplet, Ropartz and Ravel. This exploration continues with the duo she created with pianist Kishin Nagai in 2017. During their training, they have had the good fortune to work with pianist Harmut Höll on Lieder by Schubert and Wolf.

Lise has been invited to take part in a large number of music festivals such as Les Musicales de Colmar, Les Automnales du Mans, the Concerts d’Automnes in Tours and the Maurice Ravel.

Lise was voted Révélation Lyrique 2019 by the French performers’ rights society ADAMI.
