The prize-winning soprano was voted Young Vocal Artist of the Year by the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA) and received critical acclaim for her recording of Offenbach.


    Since winning prizes at the Queen Elisabeth of Belgium Competition, the young Belgian soprano Jodie Devos pursued a brilliant career that saw her perform in the leading international opera houses.

    Her luminous timbre and virtuosity enabled her to sing the most emblematic roles of the coloratura soprano repertory, notably in Les Contes d’Hoffmann, Lakmé, Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Le Comte Ory, La Fille du régiment, Mignon, Cendrillon and L’Enfant et les sortilèges. She performed under the baton of such conductors as Paolo Arrivabene, Laurent Campellone, Mikko Franck, Leonardo García Alarcón, Philippe Jordan, Dmitri Jurowski, Louis Langrée, Antonello Manacorda, Enrique Mazzola, Marc Minkowski, François-Xavier Roth and Christophe Rousset.

    Jodie Devos also gave numerous concerts and recitals around the world, which took her to Belgium (Ghent, Antwerp, Brussels), France (Paris), Germany (Düsseldorf), Holland (Maastricht), Italy (Venice), India (Mumbai), Canada (Quebec) and Poland (Katowice) and Brazil.

    Her first solo recital 'Offenbach Colorature' was unanimously acclaimed by critics and rewarded with a Diapason d’or and a Diamant d'Opéra. Her subsequent recording 'And love said...' was dedicated to English songs. She also recorded Pergolesi’s 'Stabat mater' with Le Concert de la loge and 'Bijoux perdus' with the Brussels Philharmonic. Jodie Devos recorded exclusively for Alpha Classics.

    Jodie Devos died in June 2024, at the tragically young age of 35.
