Born in 1995, Clarisse Dalles began playing music at the Versailles CRR by learning the piano. At 15, she discovered singing by integrating the Maîtrise de Radio France where she sang under the direction of conductors such as Mikko Franck, Daniele Gatti, René Jacobs, Sofi Jeannin. After a literary baccalaureate, she focused exclusively on lyrical singing and continued her studies at the Superior Department for Young Singers of the Paris CRR. After obtaining her singing diploma unanimously in June 2017, she joined the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (CNSMDP) in the class of Frédéric Gindraux, as well as at the Académie Musicale Philippe Jarrousky.
She is asked to participate in numerous concerts and recitals, notably with Philippe Jarrousky as part of her academy, accompanied by the Artaserse ensemble as well as the Appassionato ensemble conducted by Mathieu Herzog.
She was also heard in October 2017 in recital on France Musique in Gaëlle le Gallic’s program “Generation of young performers”.
During the 2018/2019 season, she made her debut in the role of Véronique, in the eponymous comic opera by André Messager, directed by Vincent Vittoz at the Théâtre de Bayonne within the Ravel Festival, then for a regional tour in different theaters in France. Very recently she was invited by the Orchestre de Chambre Nouvelle Aquitaine to sing Gustav Mahler’s 4th Symphony at the Grand Théâtre de Poitiers and at the Philharmonie de Paris. In a lighter register, Clarisse embodies Totte in Yes! by Maurice Yvain with the company Les Brigands at the Théâtre de l’Athénée in Paris and then on tour throughout France until April 2020.
Also passionate about lied and French melody, a repertoire for which she perfected with Anne Le Bozec and Jeff Cohen, she won the Young Hope award from the Centre Français de Promotion Lyrique at the International Lieders and Melodies Competition in Gordes.
In March 2021, she played the role of the Housekeeper in The Turn of the Screw by Benjamin Britten; a co-production of the Philharmonie de Paris and the CNSMDP.
Very soon she will be solo soprano in Jean Sébastien Bach’s Mass in B minor under the direction of Nicole Corti at the Festival de la Chaise Dieu, and at the Festival d’Ambronay.
She is also solo soprano in the recording of Ravel’s Cantatas for a record whose release marks the 50th anniversary of the Orchestre National des Pays de Loire in September 2021.
