Jodie Devos

Formidable prise de rôle pour Jodie Devos, ‘Young Artist of the Year’ des ICMA, dont Rosine est la première héroïne de premier plan dans sa jeune carrière inaugurée en 2014 par un 2e Prix au Concours Reine Elisabeth. Très à l’aise, elle a fasciné le public par une maîtrise totale de la redoutable vélocité des mélodies rossiniennes, avec un succès immense pour son interprétation de ‘Una voce poco fa’, aussi brillante dans les coloratures que charmante dans la tendresse. Sans oublier une puissance vocale de premier plan, qui lui permit de dominer tous ses collègues dans le finale du premier acte.
