The Mezzo Anne Pareuil is today recognized as one of the most attractive French voices for the richness and depth of her instrument. Her dark and strong lower register allows her to sing with ease the mezzo-alto repertoire such as La Cieca (gioconda), La Zia Principessa (Suor Angelica) or Erda as well as mezzo-soprano parts such as Hedwige in William Tell, Neris, Dalila or Marcellina in Le Nozze di Figaro that she enhanced in many different productions thanks to her natural vivacity and vocal qualities.


Anne created the charismatic part of Madame de Croissy in Asia at the Korean National Opera in Seoul along with Annick Massis, conducted by Mo Daniel Kawka in a new Stanislas Nordey production .
