French soprano Julie Fuchs has established herself as one the most exciting opera singers of her generation; dazzling audiences across the world’s premiere opera houses and concert halls. Winner of three Victoires de la Musique awards (including Opera Singer of the Year in 2021), second prize at Operalia in 2013, and Chevalier de l'ordre des Arts et des Lettres, her repertoire ranges from baroque to contemporary music with a focus on Mozart and Bel Canto heroines.
Julie began her musical and theatrical training in Avignon and graduated with honours from the Conservatoire National Supérieur in Paris. Marraine of the Paris Opera Competition, Julie actively supports the future of opera through this competition and with her initiative ‘Opera is Open’.
Julie’s 2023-24 season begins with a return to the Opéra national de Paris as Norina in Don Pasquale. She then makes her first role debut of the season as Gilda in Verdi's Rigoletto at Madrid's Teatro Real, followed by her American debut and role debut as the title role in Handel's Partenope at San Francisco Opera. A key pillar of Julie’s season is a series of prestigious recitals with pianist Alphonse Cemin including her Wigmore Hall house debut, Opéra du Rhin Strasbourg, Opéra de Lille, Opéra Avignon, the Kanaal Antwerp, Life Victoria Barcelona, Al Bustan Festival Lebanon, Théâtre de l'Athénée Paris and Olympia Municipal Music Theatre "Maria Callas" Athens. In concert, Julie looks forward to joining Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and Musiciens du Prince Monaco in a gala performance at the Wiener Staatsoper.
