Anne Derouard

Dramatic/Heroic Soprano

Contact Anne Derouard ›
«“Anne Derouard, que nous entendions pour la première fois, semble un véritable monstre vocal. Elle réussit à transformer l’air “du sorbet” de Berta en chef-d’oeuvre de belcanto, et dans les ensembles, où elle conserve la partie du dessus, on n’entend qu’elle !”»

«“Quant au rôle prétendument secondaire de Berta, confiez-le à une Anne Derouard, au soprano superbement articulé et projeté dans l’aigu (« Ma che cosa è questo amore »). Elle en fait une authentique maîtresse femme qui reprend in fine la situation en main ainsi que le suggère fort habilement la mise en scène.”»

«“… Le public, lui, vote pour Anne Derouard, sûrement parce qu’elle possède une grande voix, mais aussi, on l’espère, parce que cette soprano imposante est infiniment touchante.”»

French born soprano, Anne Derouard studied in the prestigious Sorbonne (Paris) and received a Master of Musicology. She then obtained her Singing Prize as well as her Prize of Chamber Music and her Prize of Music Theory in Nice Conservatory. She had the honour to be invited by Dalton Baldwin to the International Music Academy of Villecroze in 2010. She received different prizes : First Prize in the competition « Les Maîtres du Chant Français » ; Audience Prize, Third Prize in the International Competition of the Medoc, Finalist of the International Opera Competition in the Bolchoï ; First Prize and Audience Prize in the Bordeaux Opera House Competition. Recognized as a young Wagnerian voice by the Foundation Richard Wagner, she was invited to the Bayreuth Festival in 2011. She is the  guest of many stages in France and abroad : Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Ukraine, Croatia, Russia, Lithuania, Switzerland, Luxembourg... She made her début with Dorabella in Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte conducted by Oliver Holt, then she was invited to sing Aïda in Ukraine, and in 2013 she was Brünhild in Richard Wagner’s Walküre conducted by Amaury du Closel and Alexandre Myrat, directed by Pierre Thirion-Vallet. Last season she was invited in Berlin’s Philharmonie to sing Beethoven’s 9th Symphony conducted by Seitaro Hishikawa and then Rossini’s Barber of Sevilla for a tour in France with  Opera Nomade and in Clermont-Ferrand Opera House in which her Berta was particularly noticed. She was involved in the creation of the burlesque show Les Deevaz signed by Christian Bruster recently rewarded by a “Petit Molière” in Paris. She has just been a Grand Duchess of Gerolstein (Offenbach) where she received a standing ovation by the audience and was cheered by the specialized press at the Clermont-Ferrand Opera House and the “Palais des Festivals” in Cannes among many others. This summer she was invited again to sing Rossini’s Barber of Sevillia at the Festival of Saint-Céré conducted by Gaspard Brécourt. “Forum Voix Etouffées” has just asked her to sing Erich Zeisl's Requiem Ebraico with the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Pedro Amaral for a tour in France and Lithuania. Her outstanding vocal capacities and her talent as an actress allow this young dramatic soprano to approach the Grand French Repertoire as well as the German one, the Italian and the Russian ones, but also to move to lighter works such as those of Offenbach, Oscar Strauss…or the jazz’ standards.
