Praised for her “warm, colorful mezzo” (Opera News), Sophie Michaux has become one of North-America’s most versatile and compelling vocalists. A consummate singing actor, Sophie’s recent solo engagements include Ceres in Lalande’s Les Fontaines de Versailles (Boston Early Music Festival), a recital of Barbara Strozzi’s music (Fondazione Cini, Venice, Italy) the role of Siface in Cavalli’s Scipione Affricano (Haymarket Opera), and the Alto solo in the world premiere of Rudoi’s Our Transcendental Passion (Boston Cecilia). She won the 2nd prize at the 2021 Handel Aria Competition in Madison WI, and won the William Grogan Award at the 2022 Lyndon Woodside Oratorio-Solo competition. She has sung under the baton of Andris Nelsons, Lidiya Yankovskaya, Leonardo García Alarcón, and Beth Willer among others. Next season, she will premiere Her Story by Julia Wolfe with the Boston, Chicago, Nashville, San Francisco, National Symphony Orchestras, and the Lorelei Ensemble.
