The soprano Luc Ket has been celebrated as a remarkable singer with a unique and expressive voice, attracting praise both in her native Netherlands and internationally.
She received praise for her role in the Dutch premiere of Amadigi by Händel in 2014. In 2015 she sang in The Rotterdam Opera Festival, performing a melodrama by former Czech president Vaclav Havel, which also was a premiere in the Netherlands. In 2014 she also shined in Opera Seria by Florian Gassmann with opera company Opera Nijetrijne, an original and eccentric open air production in Friesland.
Luc started singing at the age of 7, and quickly rose to prominence through her performances in 12 productions with the Netherlands Opera House in Amsterdam. As a child star, she performed in Writing to Vermeer by Louis Andriessen and director Peter Greenaway, touring in Australia and New York. This year she will return to the Netherlands Opera House, conducting the choir in Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier and Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker.
Luc is a graduate of the Rotterdam Conservatory, where she studied under supervision of Carolyn Watkinson and Charlotte Riedijk. Now Luc is being coached by Marjan Kuiper. She was also taught by the renown operatic soprano Roberta Alexander and baritone Frans Huijts, with drama lessons by director David Prins and master classes by Brenda Hurley, Charlotte Margiono, Maria Riccarda-Wesseling and Claron McFadden.
A versatile singer, Luc is also a founding member of Caffeine, a new vocal group performing novel arrangements and compositions by Miguel Angel Santaella. This creative group consists of 6 young singers, composers and a pianist of 6 different nationalities. Caffeine livens up its musical performances with comedy improvisation. Luc has recently ventured into film as well, working together earlier this year with composer Hans Nieuwenhuijsen of the Amsterdam Conservatory for the soundtrack of two independent films.
