LOVINGLY SHADED SOPRANO”
"Easily filling the church with an expressive, lovingly shaded soprano, Véronique Filloux portrayed the Damozel with an inviting mixture of sorrow and joy at the prospect that the two lovers might one day meet in heaven."

French-American soprano Véronique Filloux has been praised as "showstopping... she used her dazzling coloratura and lithe stage presence to piquant comedic effect" (Opera News). She spent the summer as a Filene Artist at Wolf Trap Opera, performing in Semele, Night and Day, USA, and in recital. In the 2023/24 season, she looks forward to house and role debuts with Berkshire Opera Festival as Musetta (La bohème), Livermore Valley Opera as Curley's Wife (Of Mice and Men), and Annapolis Opera as Adina (L'elisir d'amore). Following the success of her company debut as Zerbinetta (Ariadne auf Naxos), she returns twice to Arizona Opera as Rosina (Il barbiere di Siviglia) and Zerlina (Don Giovanni). On the concert stage, she debuts with Alabama Symphony Orchestra as the soprano soloist in Handel's Messiah. She is thrilled to join The Metropolitan Opera as Helen in the workshop of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Mason Bates and Gene Scheer.
In the 2022/23 season, Véronique debuted with Washington Concert Opera as Miss Ellen (Lakmé), won 1st Place in the Zenith Opera Competition, and returned to Des Moines Metro Opera as Peaseblossom/Tytania (cover) in A Midsummer Night's Dream. She spent much of the season with Arizona Opera, making several exciting role debuts including Zerbinetta (Ariadne auf Naxos), Liesl (The Sound of Music), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), and Agatha (Frankenstein- workshop). She also debuted with Pacific Opera Project as Martesia in Vivaldi's Ercole su'l Termodonte (US premiere).
“MELISMATIC DISPLAYS OF VOCAL DEXTERITY AND POWER”
Véronique Filloux is the soprano playing Semele, a role that fits her youth and voice type very well. She displays the naivete, playfulness, and emerging self-determination of her character... Her coloratura and melismatic displays of vocal dexterity and power were impressive enough, but it was in the gentlest aria "O Sleep, why dost thou leave me" that the beauty of her voice comes to the fore."
