Inessa Galante, born as Inese Galante (12 March 1954 in Riga), is a Latvian soprano.She was born to a musical family. Her parents were both singers, and she entered the music academy in Riga in 1977.

She made her western debut at the Mannheim Opera in 1992 as Pamina in Mozart''s Zauberflöte.In 1994, she made her recording debut, after 15 years on the operatic stage. This initial recording includes one of her greatest and most popular recordings, Giulio Caccini''s Ave Maria.Galante moved to the Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf in 1996 and made her British debut. She made her US debut in 1999 at the Newport Music Festival and the Hollywood Bowl. Since then, she has become an international performer of some repute.
