“Gifted with certain magnetism” (ConcertoNet), French soprano CHLOÉ BRIOT (Yniold) has been described as “a great luxury” (The Times). Since graduating from the National Supérieur de Musique de Paris - where she studied with Mireille Alcantra and Michelle Voisinet – she has become a Laureate of the 2014 HSBC Festival d’Aix-en-Provence Academy and was awarded the Prix du Jeune Espoir at the Concours International de Chant Lyrique de l’UFAM.

Recent successes include performances with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Esa-Pekka Salonen as Yniold in Pelléas et Mélisande and the title role in L’Enfant et les Sortilèges, which she then covered at the 2015 Glyndebourne Opera Festival. Chloe also achieved critical acclaim for the title role in Emmanuelle Bastet’s new production of Pelléas et Mélisande at Angers Nantes Opéra.
Additional highlights include a role debut as Oberto in Pierre Audi’s new production Alcina at Théâtre Royal de La Monnaie; Phi-Phi in Aspasie at Théâtre de L’Odéon Marseille; a debut as Papagena in Die Zauberflöte at Opéra Théâtre St-Etienne; Jano in Jenůfa at La Monnaie with Ludovic Morlot; Cupid in Orpheus in the Underworld at Opéra de Marseille; Sémire in l’Amour and Polymnie in Les Boréades at the Opéra Royal de Versailles with Les Musiciens du Louvre under Marc Minkowski; and Elisabeth in Philip Glass’ Les Enfants Terribles at Opéra National de Bordeaux.
Chloé regularly appears on the concert stage performing a vast range of repertoire from Vivaldi’s Gloria to Fauré’s Requiem, Allegri’s Miserere, and Haydn’s Harmoniemesse.
