From baroque to contemporary music, Cyrielle deploys her long ambitus and her powerful voice easily in vibrant lyric repertoire, but also in more vocalizing roles and chamber music. She began her classical music studies on the piano and developed her passion for singing in the class of Claudine le Coz, then in Pierre Catala’s class, from which she graduated with honours (Prix d’Art Lyrique). She continued her training at the Conservatoire de Bobigny with Robert Expert, who never ceased to help her progress, and at the CNSMD de Paris in Chantal Mathias’s class. In 2017, she joined the fourth generation of singers in the Opera Fuoco troupe, directed by David Stern. The following year, she sang the fourth servant in Strauss’s Elektra at the Opéra National de Bordeaux and Elettra in Mozart’s Idomeneo, staged by Elsa Rooke with Opera Fuoco in Levallois. After meeting Karine Deshayes during her master class “Les Plaisirs de la Seine” with Opera Fuoco, she embodied Ortlinde in Wagner’s Die Walküre at the Opéra National de Bordeaux, conducted by Paul Daniel. She took part in the Académie des Treilles in October 2019 under the guidance of Dame Felicity Palmer. She is a laureate of the Tarrazzi and France Dauphin de Verna’s foundations, and more recently, a prizewinner of the Meyer Foundation and the Kriegelstein Fund. In September 2020, she joined the Beethoven class of the Jaroussky Academy and at the same time recorded the CD Muses éternelles with her pianist and duettist Kaoli Ono, on the Mirare label. In the 2022-2023 season, she is the High Priestess in Verdi’s Aida and the second lady in Mozart’s The Magic Flute at the Montpellier Opera.
