Portuguese lyric soprano Inês Simões is a versatile singer whose repertoire encompasses works from the baroque era to contemporary work.

In the field of new music, Inês Simões has premiered eight works. At Lisbon’s Gulbenkian Foundation, she performed six new pieces written for her voice, under the baton of Magnus Lindberg. In March 2016, she returned to sing in Jamie Man’s new opera Play, with the Gulbenkian Orchestra conducted by Hannu Lintu. In collaboration with the Teatro Nacional de São Carlos, she also sang the first European performances of Brazilian composer João Guilherme Ripper’s opera Onheama.

In oratorio, she made her Gulbenkian Foundation début in the role of Solomon’s Queen in Handel’s Solomon, singing opposite Iestyn Davies under the baton of Paul McCreesh. She has also been a soloist in works by Pergolesi, Rossini, Schubert and Orff.

Operatic roles include Giulia (La Scala di Seta Rossini), Rita (Rita Donizetti), Clarice (Il Mondo della Luna Haydn), Contessa (Le Nozze di Figaro Mozart), Susanna (Il segreto di Susanna Wolf-Ferrari), Bastienne (Bastien und Bastienne Mozart) and Bubikopf (Der Kaiser von Atlantis Ullmann).

Recently, Inês recorded a solo CD Alma Ibérica under the Sonus Music, featuring Portuguese and Spanish songs from the 20th century. This project was an award by the Foundation Gestão dos Direitos dos Artistas.
