We welcome Soprano GABRIELLE PHILIPONET to our roster for General Management!

« Vocalement, c’est Gabrielle Philiponet qui domine, Leïla à l’aplomb sidérant, autant dans les passages lyriques que dans les pyrotechnies du rôle, avec un timbre au grain vibratile des plus délectables. » (Emmanuel Dupuy, Diapason)

Often acclaimed as one of the finest French lyric sopranos of the moment, Gabrielle’s wide-ranging repertoire spans from Mozart to contemporary music. Closely associated with the French repertoire, she has performed Bizet’s Carmen at Opéra de Paris, Bayerische Staatsoper, Aix-en-Provence Festival, Les Pêcheurs de perles for the Lille and Nice Operas, and Gounod’s Faust at Opéra de Saint-Etienne. She regularly appears in leading roles from the romantic operatic repertoire, singing Mimi (La Bohème), Lauretta (Gianni Schicchi), Magda (Rondine)… and of course her signature role of Violetta (La Traviata).

We welcome Tenor GIULIO PELLIGRA to our roster for General Management!

“The best singer was definitely Giulio Pelligra who displayed a secure singing line with a clear tenor timbre. His high notes of the most demanding cabaletta were emitted with confidence and the true brilliance of “squillo” tones.” (L’Opera)

Born in Catania, Giulio is not only one of the most exciting and promising voices of his generation, but also regarded as one of today’s foremost performers of the Bel Canto repertoire.
