Marie-Claude Bottius Soprano
         Marie-Claude Bottius is a mult-talented Soprano with amazing versatility in Opera, Contemporary Opera, Musical Theatre, Sacred Music, Caribbean, Baroque, and Gospel. When asked her favorite, she admits is hard to choose as when she sings Caribbean, a reflection of her roots , she “feels the sun”...and siniging Sacred Music and Gospel she "feels my soul elevated" and Opera.... “I love immersing myself in the character roles and taking it to a heightened level".            Marie-Claude was born in Paris but has solid cultural roots in the West Indies, specifically Martinique. As a child, she was inspired by parents who loved to dance and sing at home and at family parties. Interspersed with singing at church during catechism lessons, she loved watching the "Fame" TV show. Initially, Marie-Claude studied Sociology earning a Master degree at Science Po in Paris and consulted in communication before embracing her passion for a lyrical artist career. This led to studies and Masterclasses across Europe. In France at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris (Diplôme Supérieur d’Execution), Italy - Verdi Academy of Milan, Scala Academy of Milan, and Belgium at the Royal Chapel of Brussels. Marie-Claude is the recipient of several prestigious awards, most notably the Second Prize at "Les Clés d’Or" at the International Competition. To complement her passion for singing, she studied various genres of dance - Modern Jazz, Classic, Contemporary and "ethnical dances" - Hindu, Afro-Caribbean, and Brazilian.             The list is long of Opera, Musical Theatre, and Sacred Music performances. To name a few, her repertoire of composers and roles include Pamina in Die Zauberflüte (Mozart), Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni (Mozart), Giulio in Cesare in Egitto (Handel), and Cleopatra in Semiramide (Rossini). Musical Theatre roles include Bess in Porgy and Bess (Gershwin), and Maria in West Side Story (Bernstein). Sacred Music performances include Stabat Mater (Pergolese), Magnificat (Bach), Messiah (Handel), Mass C Minor (Mozart), and Petite Messe Solennelle (Rossini).             Current projects include a harp duet recital called "Harpévoix" (harp and voice) and the Carib’Opera Project to promote Afro-Caribbean singers, musicians and artists with performances in Guadeloupe and Martinique.                At this Storytelling Evening, Marie-Claude will showcase her brilliant and warm voice performing excerpts from her repetoire. As well she will touch on the story of the Chevalier Saint-George, a Black Composer from the West Indies who lived at the same period of Mozart.                  The West Indian menu is at the inspiration stage and as usual will start with Champagne followed by 5 courses and other beverages - wine, cremant, beer, juice, tea and coffee.
