    The soprano Patricia Petibon was born in Montargis, France. Already interested in the piano and fine arts as a child, she earned a bachelor’s degree in musicology at the Paris Conservatoire and then went on to study singing there with Professor Rachel Yakar, graduating with a first prize in 1995. She was discovered by the acclaimed American conductor and harpsichordist William Christie and consequently often worked with his orchestra Les Arts Florissants, appearing with Christie at the Aix-en-Provence Festival, La Scala in Milan, the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires and the Wigmore Hall in London. Patricia Petibon has been awarded three Victoires de la musique classique – as “Best Young Talent” in 1998 and as “Best Opera Singer” in 2001 and 2003.

    In 1996 she made a successful debut at the Opéra de Paris in Rameau’s Hippolyte et Aricie, and subsequently appeared in a variety of roles including Blonde in Mozart’s Entführung aus dem Serail, Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos and Sophie in DerRosenkavalier, Norina in Don Pasquale and Olympia in Les Contes d’Hoffmann. Subsequently she performed at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein; the opera houses in Lyon, Nancy, Toulouse and Strasbourg; following with debuts at the Opéra Bastille in Paris in Massenet’s Manon, the Zurich Opera as Blonde and the Vienna State Opera as Olympia and Sophie.

    Since then her major roles have included Camille in Hérold’s Zampaat the Opéra Comique in Paris; Duchess Carolina in the zarzuela Luisa Fernanda by Federico Moreno Torroba at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna alongside Plácido Domingo; Despina in Così fan tutteat the Salzburg Festival; Donna Anna in Don Giovanni at the Opéra Bastille; Susanna in Figaro at the Aix-en-Provence Festival; Gilda in Rigoletto at the Bavarian State Opera; the title role in Berg’s Lulu in Geneva, Barcelona and the Salzburg Festival; Blanche in Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées and in Vienna; as well as performances of Mozart’s Mitridate in Munich and Lucio Silla in Barcelona. In March 2014, she won great acclaim in the world premiere of Philippe Boesmans’ opera Au monde at the Brussels Monnaie (“Patricia Petibon has become France’s most accomplished singing actress” – Financial Times).

A particular success was her performance as Zelmira in Haydn’s Armida at the Vienna Musikverein, with Cecilia Bartoli and Nikolaus Harnoncourt. She has since worked frequently with Harnoncourt, appearing under his baton as Mademoiselle Silberklang in Mozart’s Der Schauspieldirektor in Salzburg and in Vienna’s Musikverein; Giunia in Mozart’s Lucio Silla at the Theater an der Wien; Angelica in Haydn’s Orlando paladino at the Styriarte Festival in Graz; and Worldliness in Mozart’s Schuldigkeit des ersten Gebots in Vienna, Lucerne and Salzburg.
