The Belgian soprano, Amaryllis Dieltiens, studied voice with Lieve Vanhaverbeke and Margreet Honig. In February 2004 she graduated at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. She continued her studies at the Dutch “opera-akademie” where she specialised in opera. She attended several master-classes with a.o. Maria Cristina Kiehr, David Thomas, Patricia Mc Mahon, Mark Tucker, Ann Murray, Margreet Honig, Jill Feldman, Jard van Nes and Noëlle Barker.
Recently Amaryllis Dieltiens worked with conductors such as Henrik Schaefer, Richard Egarr, Alexander Rodin, Jos van Veldhoven, Johannes Leerthouwer, Geert Van den Dungen, Erik Van Nevel, Jan Willem de Vriend, Dirk Vermeulen, Jed Wentz etc...in opera and oratorio repertoire. Her repertoire reaches from the early Baroque to the modern era in both opera and oratorio. She has performed at several well known festivals and concert halls over the last few years. In 2009 and 2010 she made her debut at De Nationale Reisopera, Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest and at Residentie orkest.
Recent engagements were for example contemporary settings of George Frideric Handel operatic arias and duets with the Belgium Ballet group Les Ballets C. de la B. throughout Europe, Diana in J. Doves’ Siren Song at Grachtenfestival Amsterdam (also recorded on CD), J.S. Bach’s Matthäus-Passion (BWV 244) with Residentie Orkest Den Haag and De Nederlandse Bachvereniging and W.A. Mozart’s Zaide at Opera Trionfo.
Together with Bart Naessens Amaryllis Dieltiens founded the ensemble ‘Capriola Di Gioia’. They share a passion for the 17th century and Baroque repertoire and they are willing to meet up to the challenge of performing this moving music in a very personal and expressive way.
Future engagements include several cantates, Johannes-Passion (BWV 245), Matthäus-Passion (BWV 244) by J.S. Bach, W.A. Mozart’s Requiem Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem, Johannes Brahms’ Requiem, several concerts with Capriola Di Gioia, Angelica in Orlando by G.F. Handel and the release of 3 new CD-recordings: Christoph Graupner Christmas cantatas, Italian Baroque repertoire and Matthäus-Passion (BWV 244) by J.S. Bach.
