The Armenian soprano Julietta Aleksanyan studied at the Yerevan State Conservatory and has won prizes at many international competitions, including the N. Rimsky-Korsakov Competition in Russia and the Belvedere Competition in South Africa. Since 2017, she has been a soloist with the Yerevan State Opera, where she sang the role of Manon in Massenet’s opera of the same name. She made her debut at Dutch National Opera in 2018 as Berta in Il barbiere di Siviglia, followed by Ein junger hirt in Tannhaüser and Carolina in Il matrimonio segreto. This season at Dutch National Opera, she sang Clorinda in La Cenerentola and will be performing the voice of the Falcon and the Guardian of the Threshold in Strauss’s Die Frau ohne Schatten.
‘I’m really happy that I can participate in the Dutch National Opera Studio. I love this opera house and would like to be part of it. I want to develop as much as possible during this programme: hone my skills, learn more about opera, master more languages and work with fantastic teachers, conductors and directors. In short, I want to become a professional and flexible opera singer’.
