Remy Bres-Feuillet is new at Parnassus
We are delighted to be able to take over the worldwide management of the French countertenor Remy Bres-Feuillet. The highly talented young alto has taken part or will take part in several top-class baroque productions in 2024 and will appear as Nireno (Giulio Cesare) at the Palais Garnier in Paris, Flavio in the opera of the same name at the Musiktheater an der Wien, Megacle (L'Olimpiade) at the Nice Opera, as Apollo (Adonis) at the Winter in Schwetzingen, among others. In the 23/24 season, the countertenor will be working with conductors such as Harry Bicket, Rinaldo Alessandrini, Benjamin Bayl and Jean Christophe Spinosi and directors such as Damiano Michieletto, Max Emanuel Cencic and Laurent Pelly.
The young artist, who lives in Marseille, studied singing with Prof. Magali Damonte at the CNRR de Marseille until 2019 and with Prof. Mareike Schellenberger at the CNR d'Aix-en-Provence until 2021 and has been a member of David Stern's Opera Fuoco Young Artists Programme since 2021. Rémy has won numerous prizes, including the Young Artist Prize at the Festival d'Art Lyrique d'Aix en Provence (2019), the Young Artist Prize at the Concours International de la Mélodie (Gordes) (2018), first prize in the Mélodie Fr category and the Special Prize (Opéra) at the Nuits lyriques de Marmandes (2019) and the Young Artist Prize at the Cesti Competition of the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music (2021).
Rémy has been performing on stage since 2017 and has already played many roles. Previous highlights include the role of Triad in Barokko (S. Noyelle, M. Coutris, M. Quesada) at the Perm Academic Theatre in Russia (March 2017) and at the Baltic House Festival in Saint Petersburg (Sept. 2019); the role of Jupiter in La contessa de' Numi (A. Caldara) at the National Theatre La Criée in Marseille (March 2021) under the direction of Jean-Marc Aymes, and at the Namur Festival (CAV&MA) (July 2021); Delio in L'amazzone corsara (C. Pallavicino), at the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music (July, August 2022) under the baton of Luca Quintavalle and directed by Alberto Allegrezza; the role of Magacle in L'Olimpiade (A. Vivaldi) at the Beaune Festival (July 2023) conducted by Jean-Christophe Spinosi and the role of Tolomeo in Giulio Cesare in Egitto at the Leipzig Opera (April, May, June 2023) conducted by Rubén Dubrovsky with the Gewandhaus Orchestra and directed by Damiano Michieletto. In the title role of Flavio, the young countertenor was the discovery at the Bayreuth Baroque Opera Festival 2023 and Diapason wrote the following review about Remy:
"In the title role of Flavio, Rémy Brès-Feuillet combines lightness and composure with a 'royal' projection as a bonus in his festival debut at Bayreuth Baroque, not to mention a stage showdown that inspires admiration."
Further house debuts took place in autumn 2023 as Tolomeo at the Opera di Roma and in the alto role in the Christmas Oratorio at the Opera royal de Versailles.
Remy Bres-Feuillet - a name to remember in the opera world. Welcome to Parnassus, dear Remy!
