Among the many highlights in Marc Mauillon’s career, one might cite his encounter with William Christie and Les Arts Florissants (which, since the 2002 Jardin des Voix, has been materialised in a succession of projects including Atys, Platée, Armide and Dido and Aeneas). One can also cite his collaboration with Jordi Savall which has given rise to numerous concerts and recordings; and his interpretation of the title roles in Egisto (Cavalli) and Cadmus et Hermione (Lully) with Vincent Dumestre and Benjamin Lazar, who also directed him in the world premiere production of Oscar Strasnoy’s Cachafaz. His other lead roles have included Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande at the Malmö Opera and Monteverdi’s Orfeo at the Opéra de Dijon. On the stage of the Paris Opera, he has performed the role of Tisiphone in Rameau’s Hippolyte et Aricie under the direction of Emmanuelle Haïm. Since 2009, he has explored the works of Machaut in collaboration with Pierre Hamon, Angélique Mauillon and Vivabiancaluna Biffi, giving rise to three recordings.
Marc Mauillon has also worked with Hervé Niquet’s Concert Spirituel on programmes of grand motets and in the role of one of the madcap monks in King Arthur (Purcell). In addition, he has collaborated with Christophe Rousset’s Talens Lyriques (la Haine and Aronte in Lully’s Armide), Marc Minkowski’s Musiciens du Louvre (the roles of Hermann and Schlemihl in Les Contes d’Hoffmann) and Alain Altinoglu (Papageno in Die Zauberflöte). An inveterate exponent of polyphony, he has performed regularly with Denis Raisin-Dadre’s Doulce Mémoire ensemble and Vincent Dumestre’s Le Poème Harmonique. In terms of contemporary creation, he has performed in works by Peter Eötvös (Roger in Le Balcon), Pascal Dusapin (Roméo 2 in Roméo et Juliette) and Kaija Saariaho (Jaufré Rudel in L’Amour de loin).
