Coloratura Soprano | Performance Artist
Quirina is a Swiss-Belgian operatic soprano and performance artist, both in the way of classical staging and contemporary art. Increasingly interested in the combination of the forms and in art, she not only performed on the opera stage, but also produced her own musical dramas, going from classical to contemporary opera to even her own compositions, enjoying new spaces and places as well as incorporating them into her work.

"Quirina Lechmann gave a fine performance of Der Hölle Rache, from Mozart's Magic Flute. [She] navigated the runs, jumps, and tippy-top notes well with sparkling coloratura. [...]
The [Vincerò Academy] artists sang splendidly and have much to be proud of in their CARNEGIE HALL debuts." Chris Ruel, operawire.com
"Congratulations on your wonderful coloraturas and perfect high Fs."
Guest after Carnegie Hall Concert, Jan 19th, 2023
"Wir haben uns köstlich amüsiert beim gestrigen Anlass: mit stimmigen Rollen, fätzig und nicht zu lange, toll arrangiert punkto Bühne und Bekleidung, in amüsanter Anlehnung ans «Dinner-Drehbuch», doch ganz eigeständig, mit besten Stimmen und Stimmung…" P. Metz, Dinner for a Diva
"Es war ein Erlebnis und Überraschung an einem speziellen Tag und Zeit, die noch lange Nachklinken... Herzliche Gratulation!" E. Ribi, Dinner for a Diva
"Whow! Love how the high notes pop and shimmer AND how the lower notes resonate and resound."
