From a very young age, Stéphanie d’Oustrac – Francis Poulenc’s great grand niece – started dedicating herself to music and the stage. With her intense presence on stage and her generous personality, Stéphanie d’Oustrac has become one of the most outstanding mezzos of her generation. Her perfect diction soon drew public attention and has now become one of the most sought-after singers in the French repertoire. Her much acclaimed performances in Médée and Armide inevitably led her to Carmen ; first at the Opéra de Lille, and then in David Mc Vicar’s production at Glyndebourne Festival. Her future projects include Carmen at Deutsche Oper Berlin and New National Theater of Tokyo, Werther in Monte Carlo, and Don Giovanni (Donna Elvira) at the Opéra de Paris.
