Patricia Petibon

Receiving her musical education at Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse with Rachel Yakar and discovered by William Christie, who asked her to perform with ensemble Les Arts Florissants – soprano Patricia Petibon has a repertoire extending from French Baroque to contemporary music. Her first steps on stage were in 1996 in Rameau’s “Hippolyte et Aricie”, and she remains loyal to Baroque music, performing as Phani and Zima in Rameau’s “Les indes galantes” with William Christie at Opéra national de Paris, Handel’s “Ariodante” as Ginevra at Grand Théâtre de Genève and Morgana in “Alcina” at Teatro alla Scala. One of the most successes she garnered was Giunia in Mozart’s “Lucio Silla” at Theater an der Wien, led by Nikolaus Harnoncourt. Highlights of her career include Despina in “Così fan tutte” at Salzburg Festival and her role debut in “Lulu” in Geneva, at Salzburg Festival and in Barcelona. She performs frequently at Vienna’s Musikverein and Konzerthaus, at Salzburg Festival and at London’s Wigmore Hall. Patricia Petibon’s recordings include “Les Fantaisies de Patricia Petibon” with a widespread presentation of her vast repertoire, “French Touch”, “Orlando Palladino” with Nikolaus Harnoncourt and “La Passione di Gesù Christo Signor Nostro” with Fabio Biondi. She has been an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist (2008-2016). “Amoureuses”, her debut album for Deutsche Grammophon, won BBC Music Magazine Award as Best Opera Album (2009).
