As a versatile performer, Naomi Beeldens (°1988) has a predilection for music theatre, contemporary music and all things experimental. She likes to seek for boundaries - between genres, genders, disciplines, high & low culture - and is at all times on the look-out for invigorating musical experiences.
Naomi's fascination for music started when, as a small child, she played Papageno’s daughter in The Magic Flute. She developed her passion for the human voice very early on while singing in several youth choirs. After completing her degree in Modern Literature at the University of Antwerp, Naomi started her classical singing studies at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp with Anne Cambier. She graduated with great distinction with her production of Poulenc's La Voix humaine, under the guidance of Wouter Van Looy (Muziektheater Transparant).
Meanwhile, Naomi is artist in residence at Muziektheater Transparant: she participated numerous times in their Youth Operas and sang in Porselein, a production that was named of one of the best of the year 2010 by De Standaard.
Naomi has performed in various productions with i.a. Philippe Herreweghe, Frank Agsteribbe, Ewald Demeyere and Guy Joosten, and she enjoys collaborating with composer Szymon Brzoska and pianist/composer Jeroen Malaise.
This year, Naomi could be heard in Serial Drummer Girls by Koen Theys & Champ d'Action, as Elle in La Voix humaine by Muziektheater Transparant, and as Kundry in PARSIFAL The Grand Opera, a modern take on Wagner's opera by Arlon Luijten and Operadagen Rotterdam. With pianist Isaak Duerinck, she regularly takes a queer dive into Cabaret repertoire.
