Nicole Fiselier


Soprano Nicole Fiselier grew up in a musical family and frequently attended concerts and opera performances at a young age. After visiting a concert by the former Opera Forum when she was four, she was eager to learn the violin. She started weekly violin lessons and played in various youth orchestras. In the end, however, she chose the singing profession and went to study at Codarts in Rotterdam.

Her musical interests range from early to contemporary music. This results in a very diverse concert experience. She sings regularly as a soloist in the oratorio scene, but she is also not afraid to go on tour with the indie pop band Efterklang or to do an improvisation project with singer-songwriter Thomas Azier. With Holland Opera, she performed the role of Young Woman in the world premiere of the opera The Day After by Jonathan Dove. With La Petite Bande, she sang the role of Apollonia in Haydn's La canterina in Belgium and Japan.

Nicole sings regularly on a project basis with various professional choruses such as the Netherlands Radio Choir (Groot Omroepkoor), Laurens Vocaal and the La Monnaie Chorus (Belgium). Since 2013, she has also sung in the Chorus of Dutch National Opera. At Dutch National Opera, she sang as a soloist in the world premiere of Gavin Bryars' Requiem and was one of the Madrigal soloists in Eurydice - Die Liebenden, blind by Manfred Trojahn.

Nicole loves opera as it brings many disciplines together. Because the orchestra is still close to her heart, she is the happiest when the orchestra joins in the rehearsal process. This is when making music feels like coming home.
