"Julie Gebhart qui possède une douce voix de soprano (de type soubrette), campe un bel Amour plein de vitalité et d’élans. L’engagement scénique est en phase avec le mouvement perpétuel qui meut le déploiement dramaturgique tout au long de l’œuvre" 
"Lamour de la jeune Julie Gebhart témoigne d'une belle vélocité" 
                                                              Le soir
 Julie Gebhart : délicate, frissonnante, juvénile, tendre, exquise image de princesse, douée d’une voix extraordinaire au timbre fruité et aux aigus très agréables.

From very early on, Julie was passionate about singing. After school she would engage in her favourite pastime, playing various characters and singing in her garden. Her musical education also began when she was very young, as her parents introduced her to piano playing at the age of 5. At the age of 16, Julie began to listen to opera singers, she was impressed and attracted by the beauty of operatic art and from that moment onwards was determined to become an opera singer herself.

Soon she assiduously followed the technical and interpretative advice from her teacher Daniel Ottevaere at the Conservatory of Valenciennes – where she received a gold medal for the completion of her studies and a first prize in the category of advancement – as well as at the École Normale de Musique A. Cortot in Paris. She then kept perfecting her singing under the tutelage of Olga Toporkova.

From October 2015 to June 2017 Julie has been a member of the International Opera Academy of Gent directed by Guy Joosten, which enabled her to perform in various theaters across Belgium (Concert Hall of Ghent and Antwerp Opera, Alden Biesen castle, etc.) and to incarnate the roles of Eleonora from the opera Prima la musica e poi le parole by Salieri, and Euridice from the opera Orpheus by Teleman (Bozar in Brussels, Hetpaleis in Antwerp, CCHA in Hasselt, the Minard in Gent, the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Waterloo). She also performed as a Zwaantje in the creation Zwanemans, a production held by Guy Joosten in the Vlaamse Opera house of Gent and the Hetpaleis of Antwerp.

From August 2017 to June 2021, Julie has been an artist in residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel and took regular lessons with José van Dam and Sophie Koch. There she was offered the role of Pamina in the “Magic Flute” opera by Mozart with performances in Belgium and in the Grand Théâtre of Luxembourg and made her debut on the biggest Belgian stages.


Both Julie’s singing and acting talent have received acclaim: after being chosen by the radio Musiq’3 as the artist representing Belgium for the competition Young soloists of the french public medias, she won the prize of the public. At a younger age, she was awarded the second prize in the international Flame Competition in Paris and the first prize in the International Cobelli Lieder Competition in Brescia in Italy, where she was accompanied by her pianist partner, Pablo Matias Becerra.

The Royal Opera of Wallonia hired Julie in 2018 for the interpretation of Cinderella, in an opera written by Pauline Viardot, and in 2019 for the interpretation of the role L'Amour in the Opera Orphee and Euridyce (Gluck/Berlioz). She will perform again in this last production in January, February and March 2024 in the Opera of Caen, Luxemburg and Versailles
