Already a winner at the Concours Voix Nouvelles!

While the competition is in full swing at the Concours Voix Nouvelles, which has revealed Natalie Dessay, Stéphane Degout, Karine Deshayes, Anne Catherine Gillet, Eva Zaicik, etc., one candidate has already made a name for herself by winning first prize in another competition. Lauranne Oliva, a 23-year-old French soprano, has just won first prize and the Audience Prize at the Paris Opera Competition this weekend (ahead of Hedvig Haugerud, a Norwegian soprano, and Julie Roset, another French soprano, who took second and third prize respectively). On 8 October at 7.30pm at the Paris Opéra-Comique, she will face nine new finalists in what promises to be a tight battle, as some of these young artists are already well known to music lovers. To remain completely impartial, here is the list of the other finalists: Linsey Coppens, Lila Dufy, Emy Gazeilles, Livia Louis-Joseph-Dogué, Juliette Mey, Héloïse Poulet, Valentin Thill, Léo Vermot-Desroches and Lotte Verstaen.
