About Jean-Luc Chaignaud:

Jean-Luc Chaignaud (born 3 August 1959) is a French soloist baritone, singer of operas, lieder and oratorio.

Born in Pantin, Chaignaud studied singing with Régine Crespin and Gabriel Bacquier at the Conservatoire de Paris, then entered the École d'Art Lyrique of the Paris Opera where he participated in the master classes of Christa Ludwig and Hans Hotter. After making his debut in 1988 at the musical May in Bordeaux and at the Ossiachersee Festival in Austria, he was hired by Herbert von Karajan for the role of Silvano in Un ballo in maschera by Verdi, along Plácido Domingo, Josephine Barstow and Sumi Jo, recorded for Deutsche Grammophon (1989). A staging by John Schlesinger of this production, this time under the baton of Sir Georg Solti, is directed for the Salzburg Festival in 1989 and 1990 and also filmed (Arthaus/TDK, 1990).

His training with the German mezzo-soprano Christa Ludwig is decisive for her career, as she recounts in her memoirs "My voice and me" during a dithyrambic passage on the talent of this baritone of a "very beautiful voice" and who "sings well with musicality". During a first and only audition for the role of Figaro at the Vienna State Opera, director Eberhard Wächter immediately gave Chaignaud a multi-year contract, propelling him into a career on major international stages.

During the 1991-1992 season at the Vienna State Opera, he embodied the character of Belcore in Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore alongside the Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti and Marcello in Puccini's La bohème with the Italian soprano Mirella Freni. His work with these two great performers, "mythical couple of opera", with whom he shared the stage several times in Vienna and Paris, had a great influence on his approach to singing and on the evolution of his career. In 1993, the French critics praised him for his work with the Italian soprano Mirella Freni. His work with these two great performers,"mythical couple of opera", with whom he shared the stage several times in Vienna and Paris, had a great influence on his approach to singing and on the evolution of his career.

The first French national daily newspaper Le Figaro described Jean-Luc Chaignaud as a "stage prodigy", "dazzling with humanity and tenderness" and praised his voice "marvellously conducted, iridescent with beautiful colours".
