Bio


Erminie Blondel, trained as a violist, studied at the Geneva Conservatory, graduated with a 1er Prix at the Rueil-Malmaison Conservatory, and holds a Masters Degree in Recital Arts from the Paris Sorbonne. She was a member of the Marseille CNIPAL Opera Studio in 2009-2010. She now prepares her operatic roles with internationally acclaimed coach Irene Kudela of the Paris Opera.

The French-American Soprano has performed in many theaters, including Théâtre du Châtelet, Opera Comique, Nice Opera, Marseille Opera, Toulon Opera, Avignon Opera, Teatro Verdi di Pisa, Teatro Goldoni di Livorno, Teatro Coccia di Novara, and Victoria Hall in Geneva where she sang the Mozart Requiem under M. Corboz.

On stage, she has sung the major roles of her repertoire: Violetta in La Traviata in Torino, La Voix Humaine, acclaimed by Opera Magazine, Antonia in Les Contes d'Hoffmann in Italy under G. Condette, Marguerite in Faust, Konstanze in The Abduction from the Seraglio, Massenet's Manon with Operaclassica, Maria in West Side Story, Pamina in The Magic FLute...The press was unanimous in praising her vocal and dramatic performance in La Voix Humaine and The Telephone at the Clermont-Ferrand Opera. For Erminie's debut as Antonia in Hoffmann's Tales, her voice was qualified as “a voice of intense velvet”. 

In 2016, she returned to the Clermont-Ferrand Opera to sing Juliet in the French premiere of Georg Benda's Romeo and Juliet. She also sang Pamina at Naturbühne Gräfinthal and Violetta in Paris, London, and Shanghaï. In 2017 she will make her debut as Micaela in Carmen. She will return to the Clermont-Ferrand Opera in 2018 to sing Pamina in the Magic Flute.

As a recitalist, Erminie holds a degree in Recital Arts, specialized in German Lieder and French Mélodie and was a winner of the Gordes Art Song Competition in 2015. She created and produced Sheherazade, a recital of French Art song by Duparc, Ravel, Marie Jaell, Vincent d'Indy and Pauline Viardot. Other Recitals include "Frauen" with works by Schubert, Schumann and Strauss, and "Mondnacht" with works by Debussy, Rachmaninov and Strauss. She collaborates regularly with Erweckte Stimmen Wien, which focuses on composers that were oppressed under the Nazi regime. She offered a Theresienstadt Recital at the European Commission in 2015 for Holocaust Remembrance Day, and toured all over Europe in 2016-2017 with works such as Laks 8 Yiddish Songs, Saguer 4 Sefardi Songs, Glanzberg Holocaust Lieder, and Kowalski Pierrot Lunaire (Strasbourg, Blois, Vienna, Berlin, Skopje...). A CD is in preparation for the fall of 2017.
