A graduate of the Opéra National de Paris’ Atelier Lyrique, Julie Mathevet’s coloratura is particularly delightful in French and Mozartian repertoire. Dedicated to constant artistic exploration, she collaborates with the biggest names in stage direction and is equally and naturally attracted to atypical projects and contemporary creation.
She debuted the role of Eglé in La Dispute by Benoît Mernier at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels, directed by Ursel and K.E. Hermann, who some years after invited her to sing Servilia in La Clemenza di Tito at the Teatro de La Fenice in Venice. Other operatic roles include Zerlina Don Giovanni at La Monnaie, directed by Krzysztof Warlikowski; she has sung Königin der Nacht in Die Zauberflöte, and Fantasia in a production of Offenbach’s Le voyage dans la Lune at the Opera de Massy in Paris.
Julie has been invited to sing Yniold in Pelleas et Melisande on many stages; at the Opera National de Paris, under the direction of Philippe Jordan in a dramatization by Robert Wilson; at the Verbier Festival with José van Dam and under the baton of Charles Dutoit; with the Cleveland Orchestra under Franz Welser Most, as well as with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House, in Malmö Opera…
Recently, she returns to Malmö Opera to sing Miss Ellen in Lakmé, Mozart’s Great Mass in D minor in Bordeaux. She sings Naïade (Ariadne Auf Naxos) in Cleveland and covers for Zerbinetta.
With the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, she will create in june 2019 the first role of David Lang’s last opera « Prisoner of the State ». She will then sing the Queen of the Night in Lavaur, and Mozart’s Exsultate Jubilate in Bordeaux.
