I’m really looking forward to singing “La Traviata” at Staatstheater Nürnberg in the version and direction of Peter Konwitschny on Sat, June 9th and on Friday, July 20th.
Premiered in Baden-Baden in 1862, we will perform Hector Berlioz’ version of “Much ado about nothing” together with the orchestra Bergischen Symphoniker conducted by Peter Kuhn and I will fight singing as the very feminist Beatrice. On June 12th at Solingen and on June 13th at Theater Remscheid.
Eleonore Marguerre – Beatrice
Uwe Stickert – Benedicte
Annika Boos, Hero
Marek Reichert, Claudio
Ulrich Schneider, Don Pedro/ Somarone

First reviews …
“Best was the Saffi of Eleonore Marguerre. Her voice has strength and musicality and she could have the potential to expand into heavier German roles.” Seen and Heard inter. 19/12/2017
“Eleonore Marguerre portrays a remarkable Saffi, with a colourful and round voice, with a lovely and delicate vibrato. She reduces powerful high notes to a filo di voce and delivers a subtle portrait of the character. “Olryx 17.12.2017
“Eleonore Marguerre is a remarkable Saffi with a round and warm voice and with her aria in the first act the evening starts to finally get emotional.“Le Temps 17.12.2017
“Eleonore Marguerre als Saffi nimmt uns ein und sticht aus der Besetzung zweifellos heraus.” Tribune de Genève 16.12.2017
