Performer in La Mort & l’Extase and Initio
Born in São Paulo, Rodrigo Ferreira currently resides in Paris where he works with Christiane Patard. He completed his training in 2007 at the Département Supérieur pour Jeunes Chanteurs (CRR de Paris – Superior Department for Young Singers) created by Laurence Equilbey.
He sings under the direction of Gustav Leonhardt, George Benjamin, Kazuchi Ono, Susanna Mälkki and Franck Ollu. He works closely with harpsichordist Ronan Khalil, founder of Ensemble Desmarest, who are artists in residence at the 2012 Ambronay Festival, where they perform together. As an HSBC Laureate of the International Academy of Aix-en-Provence Festival 2012, he participates in the creation of Thanks to my Eyes by Oscar Bianchi and Joël Pommerat. This is followed by other contributions to the contemporary repertoire, as well as roles in the baroque repertoire (Purcell, Vivaldi, Gassman, Schütz …). He is particularly fond of ancient music in the one per voice style.
As a lover of the performing arts, Rodrigo has been involved in numerous theatre shows (musical / dance) with a number of companies since 2006, including Le Théâtre Décomposé (Éric Durand), Le Balcon (dir. Maxime Pascal), C’Interscribo (Tatiana Julien), Robin Orlyn, LOD music theatre and Les Ballets C de la B (Alain Platel).
