« Arias masterly sung (...) Expressive, fresh, luminous as well as resolute, we have here a beautiful incarnation. »

Idomeneo - Opéra théâtre de Metz 2022
Soprano Amel Brahim-Djelloul continues her luminous and singular path, rich in her two cultures. Two new recordings will be released and will punctuate her 2022/2023 season with concerts: "Les chemins qui montent", a program based on songs from Kabylia and compositions by Thomas Keck, and "Croisette", recorded with the Orchestre de Cannes and its conductor Benjamin Levy. We can also hear her with the Paladins of Jérôme Correas, the Debussy Quartet, the Amedyez Ensemble, or in the role of Eurydice (Orphée aux enfers by Offenbach) with Opera Zuid.
A graduate of the CNSMD in Paris, as well as of William Christie's "Jardin des Voix" and nominated in the "Most promising lyrical artist" category of the Victoires de la Musique classique 2007, she quickly sang many roles of the repertoire: Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro) at Angers-Nantes Opéra and at the Opéra de Lausanne, Despina (Così fan tutte) at the Opéra de Nice, Servilia (La clemenza di Tito) at the Opéra de Paris and the Festival d'Aix en Provence, but also The Princess (L'Enfant et les sortilèges), Ninette (L'amour des trois oranges) and Suor Genovieffa (Suor Angelica) at the Opéra de Paris, the title role of Messager's Véronique at the Théâtre du Châtelet, Gabrielle (La Vie Parisienne) at Angers-Nantes Opera, Nanetta (Falstaff) at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Adina (L'Elisir d'Amore) and Pamina (Die Zauberflöte) at the Opéra d'Avignon, Andreloun (Mireille) at the Chorégies d'Orange, Hébé, Fatime and Phani (Les Indes Galantes) at the Opéra national de Bordeaux and the Concertgebouw in Bruges, or Drusilla, Amore and Valletto in various productions of L'Incoronazione di Poppea (Opéra de Paris, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Berlin Staatsoper, Théâtre de la Monnaie in Brussels, Grand Théâtre de Genève, Opéras de Lille and Dijon), to name a few.
