Born in Paris and living in Bordeaux, the soprano of Iranian-Moroccan origin Sima Ouahman began her musical studies at the age of 7 at the Bordeaux Regional Conservatory, where she discovered lyrical art. She attended Maryse Castets’ classes and joined her class when she was 18.

Her career at the Bordeaux Conservatory was marked by numerous encounters, notably during master classes with Claudia Visca, David Bizick, Jeff Cohen, Florence Guignolet, Béatrice Uria Monzon, Jean-François Lombard and Benoit Dratwicki.

She makes her debut in the role of Papagena in Mozart’s The Magic Flute in July 2019, as part of the Musique en Ré festival. In June 2021, she participates in the concert of the association Unisson at the auditorium of the Opéra National de Bordeaux where she performs excerpts from Rossini’s Journey to Reims and Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro.

The public finds her in the baroque repertoire in the role of Spinette in La Vénitienne by Michel de La Barre at the Opéra de Limoges, in partnership with the Centre de musique baroque de Versailles. In the summer of 2022, back at the Musique en Ré festival, she performed the role of Parthoenis in Offenbach’s La Belle Hélène, under the direction of Pierre Dumoussaud, and appeared as a soloist in a Bach Magnificat conducted by Raphaël Pichon.

Sima Ouahman joins the Académie de l’Opéra national de Paris in September 2023.
