One of the highlights of Gabrielle Philiponet's last season was definitely her Donna Anna (Don Giovanni) at Angers Nantes Opera in a striking staging by Patrice Caurier and Moshe Leiser. Some press cuts:
"Gabrielle Philiponet renders a remarkable performance as Donna Anna, vocally with rich clay, perfectly controlled vibrato and heartbreaking rage in the low register. Her way of acting, especially when accurately expressing extreme and even violent emotion is impressing. In her creation Donna Anna is simply obsessed. Although never overacting, her performance of the opening scene makes by itself this staging plausible and understandable to the public. (Olyrix)
"The fresh even though flaming voice of Gabrielle Philiponet works wonders in the aria "Non mi dir“ sung with a touching delicacy.“ (Resmusica)
"One sympathizes with Donna Anna’s vindictive accusation provided by Gabrielle Philiponet with elegant vocal line and excellent accentuation.“ (Forumopera)
"With velvet voice and undeniable resources of nuances Gabrielle Philiponet performs a stirring Donna Anna.“ (ConcertoNet)
"Soprano Gabrielle Philiponet (Donna Anna) modulates her voice with infinite delicacy in order to illumine the drama with absolute grace.“ (Ouest-France)
For the opening of the new season Gabrielle Philiponet is now taking over a new Mozartian role: Fiordiligi (Cosi fan tutte) at the Opéra de Rouen.
Opening night on September 30, 2016. All dates of performances
