Michal Bitan – sopraan

Michal Bitan’s musical flexibility has established her as a fine interpreter of styles stretching from the Baroque era to the 21st century. Since making her debut with the New Israeli Opera as 1st Child of Mozart in Die Zauberflöte, the Jerusalem born singer has come to specialize in the works of the late French, Italian and German 18th century masters, as well as in historical acting. Further training has based her in Europe, where she completed Bachelor and Masters Studies in opera and early music at the Royal Conservatoire Den Haag. Michal sang the roles of Olympia (J.Offenbach: Les contes d’Hoffmann) with the Broadcasting Authority (IBA) Symphony Orchestra Israel, Le feu and Le rossignol (M.Ravel: L’enfant et les sortileges) with the Orchestra of the Jerusalem Academy, Dorinda (G.F.Handel: Orlando) at Theater Aachen, Armide (Lully) and Mrs. Ford (Salieri: Falstaff) at the Royal theater The Hague, and Königin der Nacht (W.A.Mozart: Die Zauberflöte) with the Lüneburger Symphoniker. Michal collaborates as a singer- actress with various ensembles and orchestras, such as “Musica Poëtica”, “Le concert d’Apollon” and “Musica da Camera”. She is an active member of The Amsterdam Historical Acting collective, and the artistic director of the ensemble “A Dialogue on a Kiss”, with whom she recorded the CD “Tis now dead Night” in 2016. Michal’s current projects include the duo drama Ariadne auf Naxos by G. Benda with Musica Poëtica, conducted by Jörn Boysen.
