Valerie Saint Martin, Marcellina in The Marriage of Figaro at the Theatre Du Tambour Royal in Paris

Valérie Saint Martin is a French musician who is highly skilled in both classical and modern genres. She is best known for her captivating opera singing and masterful harp playing. Her voice is warm, expressive, and powerful, with Falcon-like qualities. When she plays the harp, her sound has an almost piano-like quality.


Valérie was born in Paris and grew up in the Pyrenées. She developed a passion for music at a young age and began playing the harp at the Music Conservatoire of Pau.

Valérie made her professional singing debut as a chorus member of the Theatre Musical de Paris. There she had the opportunity to work with conductors such as Esa-Pekka Salonen, John Elliot Gardiner, Simon Rattle, and Antonio Pappano. 

Operatic roles performed include Dido in Dido & Aeneas, Flora in Traviata, Mercedes in Carmen, Marcellina in Le Nozze, Maddalena in Rigoletto, and Zita in Gianni Schicchi.
