LThe news comes as a profound shock. Unimaginable. While she was one of the undisputed stars of the international opera scene, the Belgian soprano Jodie Devos suddenly died this Sunday, June 16 in Paris, at the age of 35 “surrounded by her family and loved ones, following breast cancer which forced her to cancel several recent commitments,” said the press release from her agency Intermezzo.

In ten years, the woman who was second winner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 2014, had developed an impressive and natural career, without ever forgetting her roots. Performing around the world, but returning regularly to La Monnaie, the Royal Opera of Wallonia-Liège or the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of Liège (OPRL) in particular. She was also scheduled to perform this summer at the Festivals de Wallonie and Gaume Jazz.
