Eléonore LEMAIRE, soprano, obtained her "prix de perfectionnement" with the jury's unanimity (June 2008), at the CRR of Paris after finishing her law studies by graduating with an “International Law Master” at the Faculty of Paris II-Assas in 2004.
In 2005 she wins the 1st price in the lyrical category of the 5th Auray "Tremplin Jeunes Talents du Théâtre Musical" as well as the Auray’s Town price.
Since 2007, she is balancing her activities between roles of the repertoire (Mozart:Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, Argentine (Mme Zilberklang) in der Shauspieldirektor Despina, in Cosi Fan Tutt, Offenbach: Cupidon in Orphée aux Enfers and Fantasia in le Voyage dans la Lune d’Offenbach, Micaëla in Bizet's Carmen, la Fée and le Petit Poucet in L.Aubert's La Forêt Bleue, Le Truchement in de Falla's les Tréteaux de maître Pierre ), great houses like the Opéra Comique (Lisbé in Gretry's Zémire et Azor, La Cadette in Laruette's Cendrillon) or in l’Opéra de Lille (La Cugina in Madame Butterfly), and a first hour comitment to the contemporary stage, where her vocal and physical qualities (she is a dancer and a 4th dan aikido) shine equally.
Encouraged by Valérie Philippin, she created many roles, as Mme C (La villa des morts d’Aurélien Dumont), Mme Smith (La Cantatrice Chauve de Jean-P. Calvin, F.Berreur, orchestre Lamoureux Théâtre de l’Athénée), l’Ombre 2 (La Folie d’Héraklès de C.Perton, Fabrizio Cassol, Comédie Française), May (La bête de la Jungle d’Arnaud.Petit avec l’orchestre Les Siècles), or soprano solo (Giordano Bruno de Francesco Filidei ,T&M, ens. intercontemporain, Casa Musica (Porto), Musica (Strasbourg), Teatro Valli (Reggio Emilia), Piccolo Teatro Strehler (Milan), T2G ). She also shone in Amsterdam's Muziektheater in 2014 in la Soprano of Claude Vivier's Kopernikus (ensemble Silbersee, dir. Bischoff, M.Sijm), and with the AskolSchönberg Ensemble at the Concertgebouw in John Adams's Gran Pianola Music, and Unsuk Chin's Cantatrix Sopranica.
In 2017-2018, she is expected as the sole interpret of I.D. (Arnaud Petit et Alain Fleischer), with Les Siècles orchestra in the Théâtre du Nord(Lille) then in Belgium and in Canada, and for Homo Instrumentalis (Silbersee, where she interprets Nono's La Fabbricca Illuminata, Aperghis 's Machinations and Kyriakydes's Ode to Man) in the Ruhrtriennale 2017, then Muziekgebouw (Amsterdam), Biljoke (Gent); She will also interpret Britten's Illuminations with element118, a crew she created with the conductor Julien Vanhoutte, Violetta in a small version of Traviata (Paris) and will sing again Mme Zilberklang in Mozart's Shauspieldirektor.
She is also regularly invited to create recitals, contemporary pieces (A.Dumont, G.Schuemacher, M.Ungureanu, P.Criton), invests herself in cultural actions with Les Concerts de Poche, whith which she reaches a totally different audience and think about the relation between the artist and the audience. She just created element118, in order to form classical instrumentalists to the stage.
