Etienne Bazola has been a singer since his youngest days, and he attended the CRR Conservatoire in Tours before enrolling at the CRD Conservatoire in Orleans, studying under Sharon Coste and Denis Poras. In 2012, he was placed first with his diploma concert (Master 2) in lyrical singing at the Conservatoire in Lyons (CNSMD) where he studied under Isabelle Germain and Fabrice Boulanger. He hones his skill through songs, operas, oratorios and French melodies at numerous masterclasses ran by François Le Roux, Christian Immler, Rosemary Joshua and Udo Reinemann. He regularly performs as soloist with acclaimed French Baroque music ensembles, such as Les Talens Lyriques, Correspondances and Pygmalion.
He is planning to take part in recordings alongside the ensembles Les Surprises and Concerto Soave. In 2018, he will also perform as Valerianus in Charpentier’s “Les Histoires sacrées” directed by Vincent Huget under the baton of Sebastien Daucé at the Royal Chapel in Versailles, as well as Pluto in the composer’s “La descente d’Orphée aux Enfers” under the direction of Ronan Khalil in Vienna, Kraków and Gdańsk. We will also see him in Destouche’s “Issée” – the latest spectacle prepared by the Opéra Royal at Versailles under the direction of Louis-Noël Bestion de Camboulas – singing alongside Matthias Vidal and Judith van Wanroij.
