Fun Facts
Constance Hauman is the only singer to have performed the roles of Olympia, Zerbinetta and Ariel ‘en pointe’ ie., in and on toe shoes, using her years as training in ballet and dance. ~ She turned the role of Yvonne the french maid in Ernst Krenek’s Jonny Spieltauf into Yvonne the tap dancing maid; the role of Amor in Cavalli’s Giasone, she roller blading down the aisles and famously sang a duet while hula hooping. ~ Constance was the first singer to be completely nude for over 30 minutes on stage in the title role of Lulu in the epic production of LULU at the Queen of Denmark’s Castle in 1996. ~ After her big break of going on with 24 hrs notice for June Anderson in Candide, conducted by Leonard Bernstein, the word got around that she was fearless in replacing ailing singers without rehearsal. So, on the opening night of the New Orleans opera, Constance was flown down from Toronto where she was performing Don Giovanni, to open the New Orleans season in the title role of Lucia of Lucia di Lammermoor, for a suddenly fallen ill soprano. She famously arrived in New Orleans 6pm for a 7:30 curtain, was held in traffic on the way to the opera house, was pinned into the leading ladies costume at 7:15 and was on stage at 7:30. For the fiendishly difficult role of Aminta in Die Schweigsame Frau, she replaced Natalie Dessay, learning the role in less than a week for L’Opera de Marseilles. She replaced Sumi Jo with the New Japan Symphony in an all french heroine aria program in Tokyo on a 48 hrs notice.

And last but not least, for the infamous porn movie clip in David Lynch/Olga Neuwirth’s Lost Highway, it is safe to say, Constance is the first and only opera singer to make a porn movie for the sake of a production’s integrity.
