The French pianist Manon Parmentier has been principal accompanist at the Heidelberg Theatre and Orchestra since the 2023/24 season. She completed a master's degree in musicology in Vienna and a master's degree in accompaniment at the Musikhochschule in Stuttgart. 

During her studies, Manon Parmentier already took part in opera productions at the Stuttgart State Opera and Wilhelma Theatre, as well as the Göppingen Festival. In 2016, she was invited to the Gärtnerplatztheater in Munich as a répétiteur and a year later to the opera studio in Strasbourg.

From 2019 to 2022, she was employed as a répétiteur at the Opéra national du Rhin in Strasbourg and played the piano part in »Anatevka«, »Le Journal d´un disparu«, »El amor brujo« and »West Side Story« (directed by Barrie Kosky) together with the Orchestre Symphonique Mulhouse. In the 2022/23 season, she was engaged by the opera houses of Heidelberg, Heilbronn, Dijon, Metz and Nancy as a répétiteur. She expanded her repertoire with operas that were performed in France for the first time: »Stiffelio« by Verdi with Jonathan Tetelman in the leading role and »Manru« by Paderewski.
