Acclaimed by opera critics for her expressive acting talents on stage, along with her homogeneous, sensitive and colourful voice, the Belgian mezzo-soprano Coline Dutilleul was introduced both to the art of singing and piano playing at a young age.
Coline studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Brussels, and later continued at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne. She attended various international masterclasses and academies as an active participant, including those with Bernarda Fink, Nathalie Dessay, Barbara Hannigan, Monica Bacelli, Nadine Denize, Catrin Wyn-Davies and Sara Mingardo and specialising in Lied classes with the pianists Ulrich Eisenlhor, Roger Braun, Joseph Breinl, Roger Vignoles and Julius Drake.
In September 2015, Coline became part of the studio at l’Opéra National du Rhin.
She has been invited to perform at the Lucerne Festival, Snape Maltings, Festival Musica, Festival de Saintes, Festival Ars Musica, Klara Festival and various Opera Houses such as the Opera Comique, le Theatre des Champs-Elyséé, Lille, Avignon, Rennes, Reims, de Clermont-Ferrand, Aachen, Opera national du Rhin and l’ atelier lyrique de Tourcoing.
She recently recorded a recital of Haydn repertoire with Aline Zylberajch at the forte-piano for Arte Concert and she is currently preparing for her second CD with EQ pianist Kunal Lahiry.
She has collaborated with several ensemble and conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle, Raphael Pichon, Alexis Kossenko, Gary Cornelius, Barbara Hannigan, l’Arpeggiata, Les Ambassadeurs, La Grande Ecurie du Roy, Pygmalion, Le Parlement de Musique, l’Orchestre Régional Avignon-Provence, l’Orchestre des Pays de Savoie, le Lucerne Academy Orchestra, le DSO-Berlin.
