Born in Greece

into a family of archaeologists, Daphné is named after Greek’ Nymph. The kind of details that planes your life path, doesn’t it? Loving art and archeology, nevertheless, Daphné became an opera singer! She spent 20 years working as a soprano all over the world.

A new playground

was chosen: Paris! A hidden portion of the medieval city wall, a quiet overgrown garden behind a massive old door, a lovely architectural detail, those are the reasons why Paris is like an advent-calendar for Daphné!

Going back in time

is Daphné’s eternal wish. She would cross the Seine on the now-disappeared bridges, take a peek at the inaugural evening of the Garnier Opera House in 1874 and have coffee on a table next to Hemingways at La Coupole to eavesdrop on his conversation with Fitzgerald.

My Favorite Location?

The “hidden” little garden inside the Petit Palais Museum.

My Guilty Pleasure?

A “Praluline”, a delicious brioche filled with caramelized almonds and hazelnuts from Pralus pastry shop… Once you taste it, you never forget!

My Favorite Quote?

“Glory to the French ! They worked for the two fundamental needs of humanity: good food and civil rights” – Heinrich Heine

My Superpower?

I can make you sing the Phantom’s song while visiting the Opera… but cannot guarantee applause.
