French-American soprano Véronique Filloux has been noted for her “radiant vocal ease” and won praise from Opera News for her “expressive, lovingly shaded soprano.” She looks forward to her 2020/21 season as a first-year Resident Artist with Pittsburgh Opera, singing Despina (Così fan tutte), Chan Parker (Charlie Parker's Yardbird), and the title role in Handel's Semele. She spends the summer singing L'Amour and covering La Folie in Rameau's Platée.
In the 2019/20 season, she performed the roles of Shepherdess/Soprano Soloist (Venus and Adonis) with Opera Lafayette, with whom she sang Tigrane (Radamisto) last year. Prior to COVID-19, she was scheduled to make her debut with Salt Marsh Opera as Clorinda (La Cenerentola) and return to Opera Lafayette as Jeannie in the modern premiere of Philidor's The Blacksmith. Also an active concert singer, she returned to soprano solos in Carmina Burana, Bach’s Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen, and Handel’s Messiah, with organizations including the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra and Bach Collegium San Diego. A regular performer of early music, she is also pleased to rejoin Chicago’s Music of the Baroque, singing Pales in Bach’s “Hunt Cantata” and Aricie/La chasseresse (Hippolyte et Aricie, excerpts). She spent the summer with Des Moines Metro Opera as a part of their Virtual Festival.
Véronique recently completed two summers with Central City Opera, with whom she sang both Papagena (Die Zauberflöte) and the title role in Debussy’s La damoiselle élue. She was awarded the company’s Apprentice Artist Award and the prestigious Central City Opera Young Artist Award. Other recent highlights include her debut with Chicago Opera Theatre, covering Brigitta (Iolanta) and Doodle (The Scarlet Ibis), and solo work in Handel’s Dixit Dominus and The Fairy Queen (excerpts) with Music of the Baroque. Additional performances include Mae Jones (Street Scene), Soeur Constance (Dialogues des Carmélites), Servilia (La clemenza di Tito), Isifile (Il Giasone), Adele (Die Fledermaus), Despina (Così fan tutte), Lily (The Young King– world premiere), Silberklang (The Impresario), Olympia (Les contes d’Hoffmann), and solos in lost objects, several Bach cantatas, and Poulenc’s Gloria.
Véronique is a 2020 Pittsburgh District Winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, the Handel Award Winner of the 2021 Orpheus Competition, Encouragement Award Winner and Audience Favorite of the 2021 Annapolis Competition, and the 2020 winner of the Lynne Harvey Foundation/Virginia Cooper Maier Award from the Musicians Club of Women. She is a 2021 finalist in the Jensen Competition (upcoming).
