This season, French soprano Roxane Choux sings the lead role of Betly in Donizetti's opera in the Biel Solothurn opera house and is Jemmy in Guillaume Tell by Rossini in the Opera House Fribourg.
In August 2023, she is invited by the Bregenzer Festspiele to create a performance around Brecht's texts. In 2022, she collaborates with Neue Oper Wien, as Patrizia in Das Gesicht im Spiegel by Jörg Widmann, in Wien and Budapest (MÜPA). She sang the role of Johanna in Sweeney Todd in the Biel Solothurn Opera House (Iwan Wassilevski/Olivier Tambosi) in 2019/2020 and Violetta in a dragqueen and electro version of La Traviata in 2021 with the company Runoperun, an alternative opera company based in Prague. She is invited by the Musikkollegium Winterthur for an opera recital in 2022 (cond: Roberto Gonzales-Monjas) and is invited again as solo soprano in La Passion de Simone by Kaija Saariaho (Joana Carneiro) in 2024.
She was the cover for the role of Der Kleine in Der Goldene Drache by Peter Eötvös (coproduction Nouvel Opéra de Fribourg/Grand Théâtre de Genève) in December 2021.
As a kaleidoscopic performer, Roxane was invited to join the performance creation by choreographer Agostina d'Alessandro, commissioned by the centre Présence Compositrices and performed in Marseille (Festival Mars en baroque), and in Brussels (Brigittines).
She is interested in developing her own projects in which there is room for creativity and collaboration.
With her best friend, she co-created Collectif Arnold
a company dedicated to strange operatic performances in unusual places for curious audiences. They created a performance of Die Zauberflöte in Ein Haus pour Bienne, combined with mediation interventions in schools.
Passionate about the transformative power of true communication, she follows Non-Violent Communication trainings and creates in 2023 her first talking circle for men.
She lives successively in Texas, Rome, and Berlin and learns languages this way.
First trained as a pianist, she began singing at la Maîtrise de la Loire, an intensive choral course for teenagers.
