REVIEW

Reviews have praised Véronique's "sparkling lyric soprano" and "radiant vocal ease." Opera News celebrated her "expressive, lovingly shaded soprano" and her "dazzling coloratura and lithe stage presence [used] to piquant comedic effect."

SEMELE

SEMELE | PITTSBURGH OPERA | MAY 2021

"As the vainglorious title character, Véronique Filloux looked smashing in her flowing negligées... Her best moment was the showstopping "Myself I shall adore," in which she used her dazzling coloratura and lithe stage presence to piquant comedic effect."

OPERA NEWS

"Véronique Filloux, in the title role, has a part that fits her beautifully fresh soprano perfectly. In “Sleep, why dost thou leave me,” one of the best known pieces from the work, she was at her best, but the strength and flexibility of her voice were on full display throughout the evening. She acted the role with charming versatility."

PITTSBURGH IN THE ROUND

"Véronique Filloux made much of her rich role as Semele. Particularly beautiful was her rendition of “Oh Sleep Why Dost Thou Leave Me” when Semele awakens from a dream of being with Jove. Filloux also gave an entertaining performance for the famed “Myself I Shall Adore” aria, which drew some chuckles from the audience as she extolled her good looks." ... "In this production, Semele is no mere vain figure of tragedy. Rather, her motivations stem from knowing what she wants, discarding societal expectations and making every effort to get it. While her ambitions are her downfall, Semele’s agency provides a refreshingly multidimensional character arc. Not an easy feat when the main character is wearing a frilly, pink robe most of the opera."

PITTSURGH POST-GAZETTE

"As Semele, Véronique Filloux’s voice glittered brilliantly, dispatching Handel’s roulades and runs with ease in ‘Myself I shall adore’. She was equally enchanting in the softer, more gentle lyricism of ‘O sleep, why dost thou leave me?’"

SEEN AND HEARD INTERNATIONAL

"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 “Sleep, why dost thou leave me” that the beauty of her voice comes to the fore."

MISS ELLEN | WASHINGTON CONCERT OPERA | MAY 2022

"Véronique Filloux, whose own vocal capabilities seem to be not far off from [Erin] Morley’s, was a charming and forthright Miss Ellen, Gérald’s oblivious fiancée."

PARTERRE BOX

 

 "As usual, Antony Walker assembled an extraordinary cast down into the supporting roles. The colonial quintet of British expats sang with sparkle and rhythmic unity… The Miss Ellen of soprano Véronique Filloux, Gérald’s fiancée, crowned these ensembles with incisive high notes."

WASHINGTON CLASSICAL REVIEW

 "Delibes’s music for the ladies of the opera’s British contingent—the soldier Gérald’s fiancée Ellen, her confidante Rose, and the governess Mistress Bentson—was sung with apt precision and decorum by soprano Véronique Filloux, mezzo-soprano Lindsay Metzger, and contralto Megan Esther Grey. Filloux voiced Ellen’s couplet, ‘Nous sommes conquises avec moins d’éclat,’ charmingly, her upper register glowing."

PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE

"Véronique Filloux’s Chan Parker, his common-law-wife at the time of his death, was all flounces and feathers, a perfect fit with her sparkling lyric soprano."

THE GIRL/LUNA | PITTSBURGH OPERA | JANUARY 2022

"Soprano Véronique Filloux (The Girl/Luna) delivered the sterling performance she always does. She has a voice of great strength and beauty, and it’s a safe bet to predict that a colorful future awaits her. She acts as well as she sings, and it has been a consistent pleasure to listen to her in all of the roles she has sung."

ONSTAGE PITTSBURGH

"As the lovers, soprano Véronique Filloux and tenor Andrew Turner sang passionately. Turner, who is in his first season with Pittsburgh Opera, made a fine impression, and Filloux gave another of her compelling performances."

PAPAGENA | PITTSBURGH OPERA | NOVEMBER 2021

"That Véronique Filloux would be an ideal Papagena was a foregone conclusion, and she didn’t disappoint, either in the screeching crone moments or in the enchanting, charming phase of the character. Her singing and acting of the part was one of the highlights of the evening."

ONSTAGE PITTSBURGH

"Véronique Filloux's squeaks and squeals as Papagena consistently cut through the opera’s solemnity."

COSÌ FAN TUTTE

DESPINA | PITTSBURGH OPERA | OCTOBER 2020

"Véronique Filloux sang the soprano role of Despina delightfully, even in the passages requiring her to disguise her voice with a Papagena-like squeal. All three [women] proved to be excellent ensemble singers, and their voices in the concerted passages blended beautifully."

PITTSBURGH IN THE ROUND

"Véronique Filloux’s delicious Despina... would find [herself] at home in any production of the Mozart opera – classic buffo characters presented with flare and fidelity."

SEEN AND HEARD INTERNATIONAL

"Though she is early in her career, a 2018 graduate of Maryland Opera Studio, I have seen Ms. Filloux perform twice previously in Opera Lafayette productions in DC... Her talent was obvious in those roles and is more fully displayed as Despina. The beauty of her voice and singing is perhaps best displayed in Despina’s entrance set where she sings an aria educating the young female lovers. In later scenes, she displays her comedic abilities as Despina dons a couple of disguises, changing her voice and movements within those roles. I was excited to learn that in PO’s February production of Handel’s Semele, she will play the lead."

ONSTAGE PITTSBURGH
