Jérôme Boutillier

An accomplished pianist, Jérôme Boutillier first started a career as vocal coach and accompanist before taking his master degree at PSPBB (Paris) in the class of Blandine de Saint-Sauveur.

Selected as Classical Revelation of the ADAMI (a very prestigious French distinction) in 2016, his career then takes the fast track. In about four years, he took part to over a tenth of frenchs operas recordings for french and international labels (Aparté, Palazzetto Bru Zane Records…) with world known conductors and orchestras (Orchestre National de France, Bayerische Rundfunkt, Les Talens Lyriques…).

He then performs a spectacular replacement stand in as Luddorf in the Opera-Comique production of La Nonne sanglante by Gounod with Michael Spyres. Learning the score in a few days, he gets great appraisal in this rare masterpiece; a Naxos DVD of this performance went out in Autumn 2019.

Season 2018-19 sees his debut at the Grand Théâtre de Genève as Morales in Carmen. And as Urson in the rare Tarare by Antonio Salieri in Paris, Versailles, and Vienna. In January 2019, he wins the Prize of the 6th edition of the Paris Opera Competition at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées. Later on 2019, he kept on being invited to French opera houses to defend first roles in mainly French romantic repertoire.

In season 19/20, he sang the part of Hagen in Sigurd by Reyer at the Opera National de Lorraine, then that of Methousaël in La Reine de Saba by Gounod in Marseille Opera, before taking on the parts of Thierry and the Jailer in the already legendary Olivier Py production of Poulenc's Dialogues des Carmélites at the Capitole de Toulouse. He just made acclaimed debuts as Zurga in Les Pêcheurs de perles in Toulon opera house and is presently singing the role of Gaveston in the Opera-Comique star-production of La Dame Blanche.

During these last five years, his performances were also claimed by international festivals (Rolandseck-Bonn, Pau Casals-Prades, Radio-France-Montpellier, festival of the Aegean- Syros-Greece…) in Opera or chamber music (german lieder). Next season will see his debuts in the production of Carmen at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, as well as star roles like Albert (Werther) and Oreste (Iphigenie en Tauride) in 2021, Hamlet, Rodrigue de Posa in Don Carlo de Verdi and Leporello in 2022.
