Vita

Katia Ledoux was born in Paris in 1990 but moved to Austria as a child and grew up in a trilingual (French – English – German) environment. When she was 6 years old, she started singing in the boys’ choir Schubert Sängerknaben Wien in Vienna. In 2008, she received the first prize at the Austrian Prima la Musica competition for young singers.

Since then, she has won the 2018 Dutch Press Prize Winner of the International Vocal Competition in ’s-Hertogenbosch, the 2019 first prize for best Lied Duo at the Nordfriesischer Liedpreis and the Special Prize by the Theater Erfurt at the Hans Gabor Belvedere Competition. For the seasons of 2019/20 and 2020/21, the mezzosoprano has been a member of the international opera studio in Zürich.

Among many other roles, her performed repertoire comprises Maddalena in “Rigoletto” (Passion Opera Festival 2013), Marcellina in “Le Nozze di Figaro” (Stadttheater Schaffhausen, Kammeroper Schönbrunn, Sommerserenaden Graz, Orangerie Schönbrunn, Palais Eschenbach, Casino Baumgarten, Stadttheater Wels, …), Zita in “Gianni Schicchi” (Schlosstheater Schönbrunn, spring 2015), Nerone in “L’incoronazione di Poppea” (MDW Production, autumn 2015).

In June 2017, she had her debut at the MUMUTh Graz as Frau von Luber in “Der Silbersee” by Kurt Weill. That same year, she also debuted at the Oper Graz as the Mother in Menotti’s “Amahl and the Night Visitors” and at the contemporary music festival Steirischer Herbst in the world premiere of the opera “Electric Dreams”.

In 2019, Katia Ledoux had her debut in Amsterdam as Geneviève in “Pelléas et Mélisande” at the Dutch National Opera with the Concertgebouw Orchester and was invited back to sing Mary in Der fliegende Holländer in 2021 (cancelled due to the COVID-19 crisis).
