Im mezzo

Inés Moraleda, Mezzosoprano, was born in 1972 in Barcelona, Spain, where she attended the Lycée Français and studied at the Conservatori Superior Municipal, graduating in both Singing and Flute.

She then won a scholarship from the British Council and Fundació La Caixa and did her Master’s in Opera at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama, in Glasgow, U.K.


Inés made her operatic debut as Charlotte in Massenet´s Werther at the German Schloss Rheinsberg Sommer Festival.

She became a member of the company at the Tiroler Landestheater in Innsbruck, under the artistic direction of Brigitte Fassbaender,  singing Mercèdes (Carmen), Die Dunkle Dame       (Die Gespenstersonate by A. Reimann),  Bianca (Kiss me Kate) and Zaida  (Il turco in Italia).

The following season, at the Theater Graz, she sang Prinz Orlovsky (Die Fledermaus),           Second Lady  (Die Zauberflöte), La Ciesca (Gianni Schicchi) and La Périchole.


The summer of 2003 saw Inés’ debut as Carmen at the Schloss Weikersheim Sommer Festival, performing this role again at the Theatre Royal Glasgow and at the Edinburg Festival Theatre.


Back in Spain, from 2005, Inés has sung Cherubino (Le Nozze di Figaro) at Teatre de la Farandula, in Sabadell; Rosette (Manon) at Teatro de la Maestranza, in Seville; and from 2007 she has been singing regularly at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, in Barcelona, participating in many opera productions and recitals, such as Die WalküreL´Incoronazione di Poppea, Les Mamelles de Tirésias, Parsifal, Le Grand Macabre, Die Zauberflöte  and Das Rheingold.

She has very recently collaborated with the Orchestra and Choir of RTVE singing Tigrana   (Edgar by Puccini) at Teatro Monumental, in Madrid.


Inés is a passionate Lieder and Oratorio singer.

Her very first CD in 2005, after preparing for the Stuttgart Lieder Competition, was a Brahms, Berg and Eisler selection with the Austrian pianist Barbara Hölzl, an amazing woman and musician who sadly passed away several years ago.

Together with pianist Josep Surinyac she has performed Lieder all around Spain.
