After her studies at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne and at the Swiss Opera Studio, Laura Andres performed in many oratorio concerts, most notably in Brahms' Requiem, Mozart's Requiem, Orff's Carmina Burana, Dvořák's Stabat Mater and D-Mass, as well as in Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle.
On the stage, she has interpreted Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte by Mozart with the Chamber Opera of Geneva, the Neuestheater of Basel and finally at the Festival du Toûno. In that same festival, she has sung La Contessa Almaviva in Marriage of Figaro and Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, both conducted by Gilles Colliard. She has also ventured in more modern works, like Britten's Owen Wingrave (Mrs Julian), Ravel's L'Enfant et les Sortilèges (Princesse, Bergère), Rutter's Magnificat and Calmel's Requiem en l'honneur de Marie-Antoinette.
Most recently, she has interpreted Mimi in La Bohème and will reprise this role in August 2022.
Finalist of the Kattenburg Competition, Laura Andres is also a prize winner of the Fondation Colette Mosetti Scholarship of 2012-2013, as well as of the Geneva State Council's Prize.
