At the end of an amazing show at the Opéra Comique on 8 October 2023, the winners of the Voix Nouvelles 2023 competition were announced, crowning the favourite artist as predicted. Following in the footsteps of some big names such as Natalie Dessay, Karine Deshayes and Stéphane Degout, Lauranne Oliva, the talented 22-year-old soprano, takes first prize after winning the Paris Opera Competition three weeks ago. Leo Vermot-Desroches, Juliette Mey, Héloïse Poulet, Lotte Verstaen and Emy Gazeilles took 2nd to 6th place. Last but not least, the competition’s youngest competitor, 20-year-old Livia Louis-Joseph-Dogué, won the People’s Choice Award by a landslide. The very first candidate to be discovered by the Voix des Outre-mer competition also captured the hearts of the public.
