Chantal Santon-Jeffery


French soprano Chantal Santon-Jeffery is considered to be one of the most inventive artists on the musical scene today. Her vocal technique – unanimously acclaimed for its perfection – allows her to take on a vast range of repertoires, spanning from the Baroque masters (Lully, Couperin, Rameau, Purcell) through the Viennese classics to the geniuses of the 20th century (Debussy, Ravel, Dukas).

She has worked with some of the most famous Baroque ensembles and conductors (François-Xavier Roth and Les Siècles, Hervé Niquet and Le Concert Spirituel, Christophe Rousset and the Talens Lyriques, Jean-Christophe Spinosi and the Ensemble Matheus, György Vashegyi and the Orfeo Orchestra Budapest, Jean-Claude Malgoire and La Grande Écurie du Roi, Gérard Lesne and Il Seminario musicale, William Christie and Les Arts Florissants…) She performs regularly with symphonic orchestras such as the National Orchestra of Lille, the National Orchestra of Bordeaux or the Brussels Philharmonic, under the direction of François-Xavier Roth, Jonathan Darlington, Diego Fasolis or Jean-Claude Casadesus.

She has sung with these artists at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées and the Salle Pleyel in Paris, the opera houses of Versailles, Lille, Avignon, Montpellier, Bordeaux and Rouen in France, Bozar in Brussels and the Royal Opera of Wallonia in Belgium, as well as the Konzerthaus in Vienna and the Lyric Opera of Chicago.
