The mezzo-soprano Isabelle Druet was voted ‘Vocal Discovery of the Year’ at the Victoires de la Musique Classique in 2010, after being named ‘Classical Vocal Discovery’ of the Adami and winning second prize at the Queen Elisabeth of Belgium International Competition.
Her career, which has already taken her to the leading musical venues in France and abroad (Brussels, Venice, Tokyo, New York), began in the domains of the theatre and of world music. She has retained from this period a strongly theatrical temperament and a taste for musical diversity which are illustrated on both the recital platform and the operatic stage, where her appearances have included Armide with Les Arts Florissants, Cadmus et Hermione with Le Poème Harmonique, and the title role in Carmen.
She has sung under the direction de François-Xavier Roth among others (Mahler, Zemlinsky, Mozart) with such orchestras as the Orchestre National de Belgique, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Liège, the Orchestra of La Monnaie in Brussels, the Luxembourg Philharmonic, and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. In 2009 she participated in the premiere of the stage show La Valse perdue d’Offenbach.
