About Jeannette Zarou:

Jeannette Zarou (Arabic pronunciation: ; born 1942, Ramallah) is a Palestinian-born Canadian soprano. She was a lyric soprano with the Canadian Opera Company and the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, and has worked as an academic voice teacher at the Robert Schumann Hochschule in Düsseldorf.

Zarou moved to Corner Brook, Newfoundland in 1947, where she studied at the University of Toronto in 1961, as a student of Irene Jessner. In 1964, she debuted at the Canadian Opera Company (COC) as a priestess in Verdi's Aida. In 1964, she sang the title role in the premiere of Healey Willan's opera Deirdre by the University's Opera Division. A review noted:

Jeannette Zarou, truly sympathetic in the title role, possessed a mellow lyric soprano voice that led to a distinguished career in Germany over the next thirty years.

With the Canadian Opera Company, she performed the parts of Liù in Puccini's Turandot (1965), Micaela in Bizet's Carmen (1966), Marguerite in Gounod's Faust (1970), Marzelline in Beethoven's Fidelio (1973) and Mimi in Puccini's La bohème (1976).

From 1967 to 1974 she was a lyric soprano at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf and performed with singers Bernd Weikl, Rene Kollo, Peter Hofmann, Manfred Jung and Paul Frey. She also made guest appearances at opera houses in Amsterdam, Berlin, Hamburg Opera, Cologne Opera, Vienna and the Staatstheater Wiesbaden. She performed the title role in Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss at the Stratford Festival in 1975, conducted by Raffi Armenian and directed by Jan Rubes.
