French soprano Roxane Choux currently pursues a soloist master program at the ZHDK in Zürich, in the class of Yvonne Naef, after 2 years at the Opera Studio in Biel.
On stage, she is Johanna in Sweeney Todd in the Biel Solothurn Opera House (Iwan Wassilevski/Olivier Tambosi) in 2019/2020. She will be the second lady in The Magic Flute in the Ferme-Asile in Sion (Pierre Bleuse/Olivia Seigne) in 2022. She sang the role of Violetta in a reduced version of La Traviata in 2021 with the company Runoperun, an alternative opera company based in Prague.
An eclectic artist, Roxane sang also in musicals. She was Kate in Kiss me Kate (Nader Abbassi/Christian Räth) and Sally Bowles in Cabaret (Christophe Fossemalle/Daniel Estève), both in Théâtre du Galpon, Geneva.
She has a strong interest for contemporary opera : She is cover for the role of Der Kleine in Der Goldene Drache by Peter Eötvös, in the coproduction of Nouvel Opéra de Fribourg and Grand Théâtre de Genève in December 2021. She performed the princess in Lady Sarashina by Peter Eötvös in Bellinzona (Lennart Dohms/Kami Manns).
She is interested in developing her own projects, in which there is room for creativity & freedom, collective work, and the possibility to explore social and artistic topics dear to her, as well as to create mediation opportunities, considering opera a popular art form. She is a founding member and singer in the Ensemble Diaphane, a small female vocal ensemble specialized in modern, traditional and contemporary music. She recently created [CODE ZERO], a contemporary music trio with piano and percussion. With Lauriane Tissot, she created a company dedicated to strange operatic performances in unusual places for curious audience. She used to compose and sing in Cymone, an experimental poetico-explosive jazz quintet.
She began to sing at la Maîtrise de la Loire, an intensive choral course for teenagers. After studies in english litterature and cultures, and training as a pianist and a choir conductor, she entered the Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne where she completed a bachelor degree in the class of Jeannette Fischer. She was recipient of a scholarship from Fondation Jean Tanner in 2019.
In November 2019, Roxane Choux won the 3rd Price in the Concorso Internazionale di Canto lirico Maria Amadini, in Bellinzona.
