Singer Countertenor

Léo Fernique


Germany Debut

Léo Fernique’s most recent performances - either at the Athénée Théâtre Louis-Jouvet (L’incoronazione di Poppea) or on tour with La Cappella Mediterranea and Leonardo Garcia Alarcon (Amore Siciliano) - did not stay under the radar: "Vocally impressive" confirms Opera Online while Diapason emphasizes his "irresistible stage-presence". Première Loge speaks enthusiastically about "his round and full voice" and Bachtrack certifies he were "deeply moving with the most subtle nuances".

For a happy prelude of the New Year 2023 the Paris-born counter-tenor will be making his Germany debut joining the production of one of the most beloved operas of the 17th century L’Orontea (role of Corindo) by Antonio Cesti at the Aachen Theatre.

Opening night on 5th February 2023.

A few weeks ago, Léo Fernique caused a real sensation in Il Nerone, an adaptation of Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea produced by the Opéra national de Paris at the Athénée Théâtre Louis-Jouvet. The production with the Ensemble Le Poème Harmonique conducted by Vincent Dumestre created a unanimous buzz with the press, as proved by the following excerpts:

“The true revelation of the evening is doubtlessly Léo Fernique as Arnalta who succeeds to be funny, however never sacrificing the beauty of his voice and deeply moving with the most subtle nuances”. (Bachtrack)

“Léo Fernique, a first-class Arnalta, is both extremely funny and vocally impressive, with a great sense for the rhythm of the text.” (Opéra online)

“Léo Fernique copes easily with the challenge which occurs if casting the role of Arnalta with a counter-tenor (instead of a tenor as usual). He even handles the tessitura of the role playfully, possessing an irresistible stage-presence too.” (Diapason)
