Mezzo-soprano, Alba Isus discovered singing at the age of 7 when she joined the Vivaldi Choir in Barcelona. After studying piano, she became more and more interested in singing on the stage and was admitted to the opera academy of the Liceu Opera in Barcelona.
Within this institution she studied singing with the tenor Eduardo Giménez, disciple of Alfredo Kraus. She also has the opportunity to work with Raquel Pierotti and Carmen Bustamante. In this context, she performs the role of Sem, in “Noah’s Ark” by Britten at Barcelona Opera.
In France since 2005, she continues her training by perfecting her skills with Malcolm Walker, Jorge Chaminé and Teresa Berganza. As part of the Master Class with Teresa Berganza, she is invited to perform the role of Zulma in “L’italienne à Algiers” at the CIMA festival in Italy, with the participation of the Secession Orchestra, conducted by Clément Mao-Takacs.
In the lyrical repertoire, she performs regularly with the Opéra Nomade company and the Center Lyrique d’Auvergne in several opera houses and theaters.
In the choral repertoire, Alba Isus joined the Radio France Choir in 2018, under the direction of Martina Batic, performing at the Radio France auditorium. At the same time, she is part of smaller groups (Ensemble Zoroastre and Ensemble Mangata) which allow her to approach a much more intimate repertoire.
Alba Isus has been teaching Singing at the Rosny sous Bois Conservatory since 2010. She has been also teaching Alexander Technique there since 2022, proposing workshops to prepare instrumentalists, singers and actors for the stage.
The discovery of the Alexander Technique with Agnès de Brunhoff, revolutionized her way of singing, teaching and thinking about bodily gestures. After three years of official training, she integrates this valuable educational tool for the good use of herself, her body and her mind together to play and sing with her whole being, avoid unnecessary tension and manage stage fright.
