Belgian-English soprano Juliette Allen graduated in 2015 from Liège Royal Conservatoire, where she worked with Helène Bernardy and was awarded a Concertist Diploma at the École Normale de Paris Alfred Cortot in 2017, where her vocal teacher was Daniel Ottevaere. The same year, she was invited to join the Paris based company “Opera Fuoco”, created by David Stern. She was a finalist of the Mâcon International Competition “Les Symphonies d’Automne” 2022.


Juliette Allen caught the public’s attention in her performances of the title role of Les aventures de Pinocchio by Lucia Ronchetti, with the well known Ensemble Intercontemporain, at Opéra national de Rouen Normandie, Philharmonie de Paris and festival “Musica”, Strasbourg in 2017. She premiered the Italian version of the work at the Roma Europa Festival in collaboration with the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, in November 2018. The same season, she sang the role of Berengera in Richard Löwenherz by G. Ph. Telemann, at the Theater Magdeburg; Dircé in L. Cherubini’s Médée, at the Rouen Opera; and Louise in Varney’s Les Mousquetaires au Couvent, in Lille and Brussels.


During the 2018-19 season, Juliette followed the Pinocchio’s tour by Angers Nantes Opéra, Opéra de Rennes, Tolentino, Macerata and Rome. She also toured in France as Flora in the world creation Qui a peur du loup? / Macbeth, written by composer Aurélien Dumont and staged by Matthieu Roy, in a collaboration with Ars Nova Ensemble and IRCAM. She was Toybe in The Golden Bride by Rumshinsky, at the Örebro Concert Hall, with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra, conducted by David Stern.


The 2019-2020 season was mainly dedicated to the diptych Qui a peur du loup ? / Macbeth with shows taking place at Opéra national de Bordeaux, Opéra national de Lorraine Nancy and in Paris for the ouverture of IRCAM’s festival. We could also hear her as Maggie in Kurt Weill’s Lady in the Dark, with Opera Fuoco. She performed a live recital stream at the Midzik sessions of La Ferme du Biéreau (BE) alongside Belgian pianist Virgile Van Essche.


In 2022-2023, Juliette sang the role of L’Étudiante in Sivan Eldar’s opera Like Flesh (winner of the Fedora Prize), at Opéra de Lille, Opéra national de Montpellier and Opéra national de Lorraine Nancy. She created Whatspop by Aurélien Dumont, with Ensemble Cairn and she was Violet in the French premiere of Tom Coult and Alice Birch’s opera Violet, in Paris with « Ensemble Maja » conducted by Bianca Chillemi and staged by Jacques Osinski. In the summer, Juliette sang the part of Rosina in Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, at the festival “Les Estivales Lyriques de Wissant” and took part in multiple recitals of English songs, alongside pianist Virgile Van Essche. In the season 2023-24, Juliette will sing again the role of Violet, a serie of recitals with her Lied duo partner Virgile Van Essche and concerts with Opera Fuoco. She is also taking part in a new show, Le Voyage de Charlie, targeted at young audiences.


She has performed with prestigious conductors and musicians such as Maxime Pascal, David Stern, Hervé Niquet, Nicolas André, Chloé Dufresne, Bianca Chillemi as well as renowned stage directors: Mariame Clément, Jean-Yves Ruf, Jacques Osinski, Michael McCarthy, Matthieu Roy. She frequently collaborates with living composers: Lucia Ronchetti, Aurélien Dumont and Sivan Eldar.


"Since the creation Juliette Allen has played Pinocchio as the blue-haired fairy. (...) The voice is in perfect harmony with the swaggering puppet as with the sweet protective fairy: lyrical, parlando, on the breath, with all possible intonations, it is a constant joy to listen to her as well as to see her evolve, giving herself over to all the postures specific to creating each avatar of Pinocchio, from the rough trunk to the abused donkey. The medium is powerful, round, colorful, the highs easy, incisive or light, the spoken voice exemplary. Equally at ease in all styles, from belcantist lightness to the most poignant lyricism, she seems destined for a very successful career."
Yvan Beuvard - Forum Opéra

"The show is already based, and above all, on the exceptional performance of Juliette Allen, a young Belgian singer of English ancestry, extraordinary in truth and commitment, vocal and dramatic. The voice is sonorous, clear, round, fresh and expressive in all registers, as in all styles. Intelligibility is constant except for a few sung texts, subject to rapid elocution, whatever the diction qualities of the performer."
