After studying physics at the University of Paris-Sorbonne, Adrien Mathonat began his musical training by learning the trumpet and tuba, which he obtained the DEM in 2017. He discovered the voice and decided to study opera singing. He joined the class of the soprano Maryse Castets at the conservatory of Bordeaux in 2018. This is the opportunity for him to perform in various productions and concerts.

He participated in the concert of the association Unisson at the auditorium of the Opéra national de Bordeaux where he performed excerpts from Le Spectre of Hamlet by Ambroise Thomas, Rocco from Fidelio by Beethoven and Lord Sydney from Le Voyage à Reims by Rossini. In the summer of 2021, he sang the role of Sarastro in Mozart’s The Magic Flute at the Samoëns Opera Festival. More recently, he sang Bach’s Magnificat under the direction of Raphaël Pichon, as well as Mozart’s Requiem at the Toulon Opera.

Having joined the Académie de l’Opéra national de Paris in September 2022, he appears in the film-recital Nocturne, vidéo en- chantée conceived by Denis Guéguin. With the artists of the Académie, he performed in Paris, at the Palazzetto Bru Zane in Venice and at the Musikfestspiele in Saarland in a program dedicated to women composers.

In June 2023, he performed the role of the Sacerdote in Scarlatti’s La Giuditta in the auditorium of the Louvre with the orchestra Les Accents, under the direction of Thibault Noally.
