Béatrice de Larragoïti
Béatrice is the Artistic Director and one of the three founding members of Gothic Opera.
She holds a Master of Music and a Postgraduate Artist Diploma from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, as well as degrees in Art History from the Sorbonne University and the Ecole du Louvre. Led by curiosity and her field of research to become a keen defender of rarely performed romantic, fantastical and gothic opera, she was invited by the London Month of the Dead Festival to perform candlelit “gothic” recitals in singular venues, alongside pianist Karl Lutchmayer, and started then to shape the concept.
She has performed on various stages, festivals and concert platforms across Europe, America and the U.K., including Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, Grimeborn Festival, Oxford Lieder Festival, Saint-Martin-in-the-Fields, Opéra de Baugé and Opéra en Plein Air, working under conductors such as Vincent Dumestre, Alexandre Piquion, Philip Sunderland, Jessica Cottis and Oliver-John Ruthven. Most recently, Béatrice was an invited artist at the Silesian Festival of Ludwig van Beethoven (Poland), and this summer, she will be Ketty in Passionnément by André Messager at the Lyrique-en-Mer Festival (France).
She will play Janthe in Gothic Opera’s first production, Der Vampyr.
