Biography

French-American soprano Véronique Filloux has been noted for her “expressive, lovingly shaded soprano” and “dazzling coloratura and lithe stage presence” (Opera News). She is currently a second-year Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artist, singing Papagena (The Magic Flute), The Girl/Luna (The Rose Elf), and Frasquita (Carmen). In her first year with the company, she was seen as Despina (Così fan tutte), Chan (Charlie Parker’s Yardbird), and the title role in Semele. She spends the summer with Des Moines Metro Opera as L'Amour/La Folie (cover) in Platée.

In 2019/20, Véronique was seen as Shepherdess (Venus and Adonis) with Opera Lafayette, with whom she also made her Kennedy Center debut as Tigrane (Radamisto). She returned to solos in Carmina Burana and Messiah with the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra and Bach Collegium San Diego, and she rejoined Music of the Baroque as Pales in Bach’s “Hunt Cantata.” She was scheduled to debut with Salt Marsh Opera as Clorinda (La Cenerentola) and to sing Jeannie in Opera Lafayette’s modern premiere of Philidor’s The Blacksmith.

At Central City Opera, Véronique sang both Papagena (Die Zauberflöte) and the title role in Debussy’s La damoiselle élue, winning the company’s Young Artist Award. Other recent highlights include her work with Chicago Opera Theatre, covering Brigitta (Iolanta) and Doodle (The Scarlet Ibis), and solo work with Music of the Baroque. With the Maryland Opera Studio, she performed Soeur Constance (Dialogues des Carmélites), Servilia (La clemenza di Tito), Mae (Street Scene), and Lily (The Young King- premiere). Other roles include Olympia (Les contes d'Hoffmann), Silberklang (The Impresario), Isifile (Il Giasone), and Adele (Die Fledermaus).

She is a Pittsburgh District MONC Winner, Musicians Club of Women winner, Orpheus Competition Handel Award Winner, Annapolis Opera Competition Encouragement Award Winner/Audience Favorite, 2nd Place Winner of the Dorothy Lincoln-Smith Competition, and a Jensen Competition Finalist.
"Easily filling the church with an expressive, lovingly shaded soprano, Véronique Filloux portrayed the Damozel with an inviting mixture of sorrow and joy at the prospect that the two lovers might one day meet in heaven."​"... a magical experience."

Filloux made much of her rich role as Semele. Particularly beautiful was her rendition of “Oh Sleep Why Dost Thou Leave Me” when Semele awakens from a dream of being with Jove. Filloux also gave an entertaining performance for the famed “Myself I Shall Adore” aria, which drew some chuckles from the audience as she extolled her good looks... Semele’s agency provides a refreshingly multidimensional character arc. Not an easy feat when the main character is wearing a frilly, pink robe most of the opera.
— Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Véronique Filloux['s Semele] fits her youth and voice type very well. She displays the naivete, playfulness, and emerging self-determination of her character... Her coloratura and melismatic displays of vocal dexterity and power were impressive enough, but it was in the gentlest aria “O Sleep, why dost thou leave me” that the beauty of her voice comes to the fore.

Véronique Filloux’s Chan Parker, his common-law-wife at the time of his death, was all flounces and feathers, a perfect fit with her sparkling lyric soprano.
— Seen and Heard International
As Semele, Véronique Filloux’s voice glittered brilliantly, dispatching Handel’s roulades and runs with ease in ‘Myself I shall adore’. She was equally enchanting in the softer, more gentle lyricism of ‘O sleep, why dost thou leave me?’... Just as lovely was the blend that Filloux and Ehlinger achieved when they sang together, which was something quite special.
— Seen and Heard International
"As the vainglorious title character, Véronique Filloux looked smashing in her flowing negligées... Her best moment was the showstopping "Myself I shall adore," in which she used her dazzling coloratura and lithe stage presence to piquant comedic effect."
