In the fall of 2016, she sang the role of Tanager Bird in a staged production of Orff's Carmina Burana. Frédérique was also selected to be understudy for the solo part (Vision), sung by Julia Westendorp.This was a production of Operagroep The Fat Lady. Ida van de Lagemaat was the director and Tamir Chasson conducted the piece.
Frédérique also participated in the musical theatre production Beeldenstorm, as Member of the Regimen. Beeldenstorm is a new work by Peter Jan Wagemans. It was performed by the company Muziektheater Hollands Diep, during the Dordrecht Bach Festival. Cilia Hogerzeil directed the production, together with Arnout Lems, and Peter Jan Wagemans and Geerten Liefting were the conductors.
Last but not least: since 2016 Frédérique has formed the new soprano-harp duo Feliciana with harpist Esther Jansen. They have performed at Tassenmuseum Hendrikje in Amsterdam on the 2nd of July. During the concert, they were wearing gowns designed by couturier Dennis Diem. Duo Feliciana were also asked to perform at the official opening of the exhibition Royal Bags, and they have given a wonderful Christmas concert with the title Felice Natale! For this occasion they were again dressed by designer Dennis Diem. For more information, please click the menu button Duo Feliciana.
