After studying violin at Strasbourg, Rueil-Malmaison and Paris conservatoires, Odile went on to the Royal College Music in London in 2003 to study voice and violin, then to the Guildhall School of Music where she studied singing with Yvonne Kenny, Philip Doghan and Sarah Walker, gaining her Master's degree with outstanding grades.
Odile has won prizes at numerous international competitions for opera and operetta (Canari opera prize with Gabriel Bacquier as president of the jury, 1st prize at the 2012 Marseille operetta competition, Alain Fondary audience prize, Enesco contemporary singing prize with Viorica Cortez as president of the jury, Vincenzo Bellini competition…). She is at home in coloratura and lyric coloratura repertoire such as Alcina, Cleopatra, Queen of the Night, Fille du Régiment, Olympia, Ophélie, Manon, Zerbinetta, Elvira, Konstanze, Cunégonde, Anne Trulove… which she sings with sparkle and consummate ease.
Reviews have recently hailed her “remarkable voice, endowed with wonderful projection and sensual top notes” (Forum Opera) during a recent reprise of the show A la Folie at the Nancyphonies festival last August.
In 2019, Odile, who is also a gifted actress and violinist, performed in Je m’appelle Ismaël, an original play by writer and director Lazare, which premiered at the Théâtre National de Strasbourg in February, a cultural highlight for TV channel Arte. The play transferred to the Paris Théâtre de la Ville in June, then toured to national theatres across France.
Odile is currently an associate artist of the Mulhouse Symphonic Orchestra, with Jacques Lacombe as artistic and musical director. On December 20th and 21st, she appeared alongside cellist Gauthier Capuçon in the world premiere of Michel Tabachnik’s Sumer, conducted by the composer at the Mulhouse Filature concert hall.
During the Musica Nigella festival in May and June 2020, Odile will perform the parts of Die Freundin in Schoenberg’s Von Heute auf Morgen and Georget in Offenbach’s Les trois baisers du diable. Together with pianist Hugues Leclère, she will also give an opera and song recital on the theme of “La Femme Française”. She will return to the Mulhouse Symphonic Orchestra in April for Mozart’s Requiem, as well as a series of concerts in Germany with Trio Chausson, focussing on German Romantic repertoire.
