BIOGRAPHY

Originally from Normandy, Sabine Devieilhe first studied cello and musicology before dedicating herself completely to her vocal studies at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris. Soon after graduating, she was invited to the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence to sing Serpetta in Mozart’s La finta giardiniera, to Montpellier for the title role in Léo Delibes’ Lakmé and to Lyon for her debut as Queen of the Night in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. She was named “Révélation Artiste Lyrique” at the 20th edition of the Victoires de la Musique in 2013.

Since then she has been a regular name in all major opera houses including the Opéra national de Paris, Théâtre des Champs Elysées, Opéra Comique, La Monnaie in Brussels, the Opernhaus Zürich, Vienna State Opera, Milan’s La Scala, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Glyndebourne Festival and the Salzburg Festival.

Sabine Devieilhe celebrated her most recent successes as Morgana in Handel’s Alcina at the Opéra de Paris, as Ophélie in Thomas' Hamlet at the Opéra Comique, as Cleopatra in Handel’s Giulio Cesare at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées, and Ilia in Mozart’s Idoemeno at the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence. Her 2022/2023 season featured an acclaimed new production of Délibe's Lakmé at the Opéra, together with her Metropolitan Opera debut in Poulenc's Dialogues des Carmelites (Soeur Constance), and productions of Les Mamelles de Tirésias and Stravinsky's Le Rossignol at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées.

In summer 2023, Sabine Devieilhe performs her debut as Susanna in Mozart's Nozze di Figaro at the Salzburg Festival. In the 2023/2024 season, the soprano can be heard in a revival of Delibes Lakmé at the Opéra national du Rhin in Strasbourg, and as Soeur Constance in Poulenc's Dialogues des Carmelites at the Vienna State Opera. At the Bavarian State Opera in Munich she will sing Mélisande in a new production of Debussy's Pelléas et Mélisande. Sabine Devieilhe can also be heard in concert performances of Rameau's Les Boréades (Alphise) with the Orfeo Orchestra under György Vashegyi, in Mozart's Idoemeno (Ilia) under Sir Simon Rattle and in Bizet's Carmen (Micaela) under the baton of René Jacobs.


A renowned concert performer, Sabine Devieilhe could recently be heard in programmes including Mozart arias & Mahler's 4th Symphony with Les Siècles and Francois-Xavier Roth, arias by Handel & Bach together with Ensemble Pygmalion and Raphaël Pichon, as well as Britten's Les Illuminations with the Bayerische Staatskapelle under Vladimir Jurowsky. In autumn 2023, she made her debut with the Berlin Philharmonic performing Mozart arias under the baton of Maxim Emelyanychev, as well as with the Concertgebouw Orchestra under the baton of Klaus Mäkelä.

Sabine Devieilhe feels equally at home on the Lied stage. Her new Lied album with songs by Mozart and Strauss was released in March 2024 - a programme that she will perform together with Mathieu Pordoy in 2024 in Dijon, Paris, Bordeaux, London's Wigmore Hall, the Vienna Musikverein, the Berlin Philharmonie, the Heidelberger Frühling Festival, the Essen Philharmonie and the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. In autumn 2024, she can be heard in recitals at the Opéra Comique, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Teatro de la Zarzuela in Madrid, the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Dortmund and Lausanne.

Sabine Devieilhe has been an exclusive artist for Erato/Warner Classics since 2012. Her debut disc of Rameau arias won several awards, including a Diapason d'Or. Her more recent recordings have included a Mozart album The Weber Sisters with Ensemble Pygmalion and Raphaël Pichon, and her solo album Mirages with Les Siècles under François-Xavier Roth, for which she was awarded two coveted trophies at the 25th edition of the Victoires de la Musique. In September 2020, Erato/Warner Classics released an imaginatively balanced recital in which Sabine Devieilhe and pianist Alexandre Tharaud interpret songs by Fauré, Debussy, Ravel and Poulenc. The following year, the label released an exquisite Handel-Bach album featuring Sabine Devieilhe, Ensemble Pygmalion, and Raphaël Pichon that garnered critical acclaim among audiences and the press.
