Praised for her “warm, colorful mezzo” by Opera News, Sophie Michaux has become one of North- America’s most versatile and compelling vocalists. Born in London and raised in the French Alps, Sophie’s unique background informs her artistic identity, making her feel at home in an eclectic span of repertoire ranging from grand opera to French cabaret songs. Recent solo engagements include the role of Alcina in Caccini’s La Liberation di Ruggiero dall’Isola d’Alcina (Haymarket Opera), Olofernes in Scarlatti’s La Giuditta (Haymarket Opera), a tour of Hawai’i with Les Délices, the alto solos in the Handel’s Dixit Domino (Upper Valley Baroque), and De Falla’s El Amor Brujo (Lowell Chamber Orchestra). She is thrilled to collaborate with Blue Heron, The Lorelei Ensemble, Les Délices, the Boston Early Music Festival, Roomful of Teeth, Bach Collegium San Diego, Palaver Strings, and others. Last season, she took part in the Lorelei Ensemble’s US tour, premiering Her Story by Julia Wolfe with the Boston, Chicago, Nashville, and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras.
