"Easily filling the church with an
EXPRESSIVE, LOVINGLY SHADED SOPRANO,
Véronique Filloux portrayed the Damozel with an inviting
mixture of sorrow and joy..."

A 2021 MONC Eastern Region Finalist and 2021 Jensen Competition Finalist (upcoming), Véronique spends the 2020/21 season as a first-year Resident Artist with Pittsburgh Opera. She sings Despina (COSÌ FAN TUTTE), Chan Parker (CHARLIE PARKER'S YARDBIRD), and the title role in Handel's SEMELE.
She then joins Des Moines Metro Opera for the summer, singing L'Amour/covering La Folie in Rameau's PLATÉE.
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; plus, this is also a part of the repertoire she especially likes to sing.
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.
