The lyrical-light soprano, born in Darmos (Tarragona), entered the world of art with dance (classical and Spanish), piano and choral singing. At the age of 14 she began her singing studies and, at 16, she made her first appearance in a contemporary opera at the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya (TNC). Since then, she continued her training until obtaining a degree in Singing and Interpretation at the Liceu Conservatory of Barcelona.
The soprano made her operatic debut in 2013 at the Rossini Opera Festival, playing the role of Folleville (Il Viaggio a Reims).
After having won recognition in several competitions, highlighting the "Concurs Internacional de Cant Montserrat Caballé" (2014), the "Josep Mirabent i Magrans de Sitges" (2015) and the contest "Tenor Viñas" (2016), where he obtained eight awards, we have been able to follow in their footsteps in various renowned theatres and festivals, such as the Gran Teatro del Liceu (Barcelona), the Teatro Real (Madrid), Teatro de la Zarzuela (Madrid), the Teatro Campoamor (Oviedo), the Teatro Regio (Torino, Italy), the Teatro Verdi (Salerno, Italy), the Teatro de la Maestranza (Seville), the Palau de la Música (Barcelona), the Tchaikovsky Theater (Perm, Russia), el Teatro del Maggio (Firenze, Italy), el Teatro Massimo (Palermo, Italy), el Palau de les Arts (València), el Festival de Salzburg, el Donizetti Opera Festival (Bergamo, Italy), the Castell de Peralada Festival (Peralada), Musiques en Fête (Théâtre Antique d’Orange, França), Fauteuils d’Orquestre (Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Paris, França), Rossini in Wildbad (Bad-Wildbad, Alemanya), etc…
Sara Blanch has already performed more than 27 operatic roles, of which the most notable are Norina (Don Pasquale), Lucia (Lucia di Lammermoor), Matilde (Matilde di Shabran), Fiorilla (Il turco in Italia), Adina (L’elisir d’amore), Königin der nacht (Die Zauberflöte), Adèle (Le compte Ory), Marie (La Fille du Régiment), Zerbinetta (Ariadne auf Naxos), among others. In addition, her operatic activity is combined with an important concert activity, also passing through the symphonic repertoire, the oratorio, the song and the recital.
Soon we will be able to hear the soprano at the Gran Teatre del Liceu (Barcelona), the Théâtre National de Nice (France), the Teatro Campoamor (Oviedo), the Teatro Filarmonico di Verona (Italy), the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino (Firenze, Italy) and the Teatro Real (Madrid), among others. .

In November 2022 Sara Blanch is having her début in the role of Amina at the Opéra Nice in which will also be her first performance in the theatre and her first opera in France. The season will start in Nice with this Sonnambula by Bellini, a big challenge for the soprano in the title role since it entails a great control of the coloratura and a deep knowledge of the belcanto technique. Blanch will sing under the baton of Giuliano Carella in a project staged by Rolando Villazón, a coproduction of Nice with the Metropolitan Opera of New York, the Semperoper of Dresden and the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées of Paris.
Sara Blanch has been invited by the renowned conductor Teodor Currentzis to take part as a soloist in the Rameau concert that the Greek will present with his orchestra and choir, musicAeterna, at the Salzburg Festival. Under the title “The sound of light”, the soprano will sing excerpts of the operas Hyppolite et Aricie, Dardanus and Castor et Pollux. Blanch will thus accept the challenge of diving into the Baroque repertoire in one of the most prestigious stages in the world.
Sara Blanch debuts at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino with three performances, Symphony no. 4 by Gustav Mahler directed by James Colon, the opera by Luigi Cherubini Lo sposo di tre, e marito di nessuna with stage direction by Cesare Lievi and musical direction by Diego Fasolis, and the opera Orphée et Eurydice by Christoph Willibald Gluck with Daniele Gatti as musical director and Pierre Audi as stage director.
The association L'Instant Lyrique organizes lyric recitals in unique spaces in Paris and other places in France. On this occasion, Sara Blanch will accompany the Mexican tenor Arturo Chacón-Cruz and the pianist Antoine Palloc in a repertoire of arias and opera duets in the Salle Gaveau in Paris, a concert hall of the early twentieth century dedicated especially to chamber music and recitals of piano and voice.
Sara Blanch plays Matilda in Rossini's opera Matilda di Shabran which the NAXOS label has recently released. It is a recording made at the Festival Rossini in Bad Wildbad, Germany, with the full interpretation of the original score premiered in Rome in 1821 under the baton of Paganini. This is the full cast of the recording: Michele Angelini, Sara Blanch, Shi Zong, Victoria Yarovaya, Emmanuel Franco, Giulio Mastrototaro, Ricardo Seguel, the Passionart Orchestra and the Gorecki Chamber Choir, with the conduction of José Miguel Pérez-Sierra.
Sara Blach will play, in January 2021, the role of Nannetta in Falstaff, the operatic commedia lirica in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi, in Les Arts de Valencia, in the company of Ambrogio Maestri, Mattia Olivieri, Juan Francisco Gatell, Jorge Rodríguez Norton, Valeriano Lanchas, Ainhoa Arteta, Violeta Urmanaigan and Amber Fachelle, with stage direction by Mario Martone and the Orchestra of the Valencian Community with musical direction by James Gaffigan.
“Desde su primera intervención Sara Blanch compuso la mejor Norina posible”
