Bio

Dutch soprano Judith Weusten started singing at a young age. She had her first stage performance at only 9 years old, and when she was 11 she performed in the official Dutch production of the musical Annie. Around age 15, her attention shifted from musical to classical music, and she has been hooked ever since.

She received her Bachelor of Music at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in June 2017. There she studied voice with Valérie Guillorit and Pierre Mak and was coached by Jan-Paul Grijpink. She now studies at the Dutch National Opera Academy with Margreet Honig.

Among others, Judith has performed roles of Despina in Mozart's Così fan Tutte, Lucia in Britten’s Rape of Lucretia, Frasquita in Bizet’s Carmen and Sandmann/Taumann in Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel. Apart from the traditional repertoire, she has collaborated with different composers. Recently she sang the Australian premiere of Douglas Knehans’s opera Backwards from Winter. 

She is comfortable in Lied and oratorio as well, regularly performing in recitals. She has sung soprano solo in Haydn's Schöpfung, Fauré's Requiem, Pergolesi's Stabat Mater and various Bach and Mozart cantatas.

Upcoming projects are Polisenna in Händel’s Radamisto, Adina in Donizetti's Elisir d'Amore and Zerlina in Mozart's Don Giovanni.
