Patricia Petibon is a French soprano who specializes in Baroque music and whose popularity led to a series of solo album releases after the turn of the century. Born on February 27, 1970, in Montargis, Loiret, she studied at the Conservatoire de Paris and was awarded a prestigious prize there in 1995. She initially established herself as an opera star during the late '90s, appearing in performances of Ã‰tienne MÃ©hul's Stratonice (1996), Jean-Philippe Rameau's Hippolyte et Aricie (1997), LÃ©o Delibes' LakmÃ© (1998), Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Die EntfÃ¼hrung aus dem Serail (1999), George Frideric Handel's Acis and Galatea (1999), and Jules Massenet's Werther (1999). After the turn of the century she continued to make her mark in the opera world, appearing in performances of Joseph Haydn's Armida (2000) and Jacques Offenbach's OrphÃ©e aux Enfers (2002). By this point, however, her star had risen to the point where she began releasing solo albums. Her solo album output includes Airs Baroques FranÃ§ais (2002), Les Fantaisies de Patricia Petibon (2004), French Touch (2004), and Amoureuses (2008), plus the DVD release French Touch: Recital Ã la Salle Gaveau (2005). ~ Jason BirchmeierPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
