In her debut album on Warner Classics "Enchantée", 

Marie Oppert embraces both the classics of Broadway repertoire and treasured songs of French origin, in order to represent her own musical upbringing and passion. 

She is joined by the Orchestre National de Lille and conductor Nicholas Skilbeck in the recording, and in two separate tracks she reunites with Natalie Dessay and Melissa Errico, whom she affectionately calls “my two Franco-American ‘fairy godmothers’.

Since her debut at age 17 in the lead role of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg at the Theatre Chatelet  alongside Natalie Dessay and Michel Legrand, Marie Oppert is viewed as the new « rising star of musical theatre ».

In 2017, she won the Interpretation Award of the International Singing Competition of Marseille (operetta category) and Lotte Lenya Competition’s Special Award of the Kurt Weill Foundation. 

She is regularly invited to sing in concerts in prestigious venues in Paris such as Olympia, Salle Pleyel, Theatre Champs-Elysees, Grand Rex, Radio France, at the Crazy Coqs in London and at Birdland in New York.
