“Inessa Galante is a Latvian soprano opera singer known for a great beauty of tone, nuanced pianissimos and sensitive command of dynamics and colour. Galante was born in Riga to a musical family. She entered the Latvian Academy of Music in Riga in 1977. While still a student at the Academy she became a soloist of the Latvian National Opera. Parallel to her work in Riga she was engaged in opera productions of other theatres, particularly at the Kirov Opera (Mariinsky Theatre) in St. Petersburg, where she had a fruitful collaboration with conductor Valery Gergiev. From 1991 until 1999 Galante was soloist at National Theatre Mannheim and Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf. Since then she has been touring and performing all over the world. The voice of Galante was heard at Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, at Festival de Radio France et Montpellier and St. Denis Festival (USA), Barbican Hall, Gibson Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall, Kensington Palace, Newport Music Festival (USA), Royal Swedish Opera, Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow (where she had her début as Adriana in Cilea's ADRIANA LECOUVREUR in the La Scala production).”
