L'émotion du chant lyrique

Site officiel de Barbara Bourdarel


At the age of eight, I began studying the piano in private. For thirteen years, I completed this piano training with numerous internships and masterclass that will take me to the end of the cycle. One of my teachers detected a certain aptitude for siging in me and encouraged me to continue along this path.

Holder of a literary baccalaureate, in 2011 I obtained my diploma in musicology at the University of Provence.


In 2018, I have the honour and pleasure of being awarded the "First Grand Prix de la Ville de Marseille" at the winners' evening. The CNRR awarded me the Prix de chant lyrique with honours unanimously, which allowed me to obtain my DEM (Diploma of Musical Studies, singing discipline). In 2017, I validated my Lyric Art Prize and in 2013 my Musical Training Prize, with a very good mention.


During these musical studies, I benefited from precious and friendly advice; 












  • internationally renowned artists during the Masterclass: Ludovic Tézier, Cassandre Berthon, Jean-Philippe Lafont, Graciane Finzi, Mireille Larroche, Isabelle Poulenard, Henry Runey,...


  • pianists: Carlos Cebro, Marie-France Arakélian, Valérie Florac, Laura Caravello, Elizabeth Cooper, France Pennetier, Thomas Palmer,...


During my studies, I performed on stage the roles of : Micaëla - Carmen by Bizet, Maria - West Side Story by Bernstein, Monica - The Medium by Menotti, Ciboulette by Hahn, Donna Elvira - Don Giovanni by Mozart ... I also like the contemporary repertoire, especially of Aboulker, Finzi, Aperghis, Ohana to name but a few.


  • Winner of the International Leopold Bellan Competition, Paris 2018, I won the second prize for singing.
  • I was awarded a tery good mention at the "Concours d'Honneur des Maîtres du Chant" 2018 in Paris.


Now, I am perfecting my vocal technique with Ludovic Tézier, Cassandre Berthon, Magali Damonte and Isabelle Vernet.
