About

Portrait by Cindy Garcia

    Océane Deweirder is a French high mezzo soprano, both active as interpreter of the lyric repertoire and multidisciplinary creativity around the opera voice.

 

   Coming from a singing, drama & dance european background, Océane graduated with distinction from a Master in Vocal at Royal Academy of Music in 2020; she then entered Stéphane Fuget's baroque opera course (Paris Regional Conservatoire), in order to further her skills in this particular repertoire.

  Active in the baroque, classical and romantic areas, Océane has already performed operas or sacred music in London (Susie Sainsbury Theatre), Florence (Palazzo Pitti), Berlin Opera Festival, Chapelle royale de Versailles...  More recently, she has been working with Ensemble Matheus - Jean-Christophe Spinosi and Les Epopées - Stéphane Fuget.

 

  She also collaborates with international composers (Benjamin Scheuer, James Batty, Electra Perivolaris…), from whom she is particularly appreciated for her versatility. She has been creating pieces at Sound & Vision London Festival, Aix-en-Provence June Festival and recently Helsinki's SibaFest.

      She will soon be the 3ème femme maure in the historically informed re-creation of Le malade imaginaire by Molière et Charpentier at the Opéra Royal de Versailles (Théâtre Molière Sorbonne) ; Scorbio in Le Nozze in Sogno, by Cesti at Paris CRR auditorium with conductor Stéphane Fuget, and premiering at the Embaroquement immédiat Festival with her own recital : Rhétorique du sauvage.
