The Italian soprano Francesca Pusceddu was born in Sardinia in 1994. 


She started her musical studies in 2005 at the Conservatorio G.P. da Palestrina in Cagliari, where in 2015 she graduated in violin with 9/10 in the class of Marco Ligas. 


Meanwhile she develops an interest for singing, joining the class of the Contralto Bernadette Manca di Nissa.


From 2015 Francesca lives in the Netherlands, where in 2019 she graduated Summa cum Laude in singing at the Prins Claus Conservatorium in Groningen, in the class of Hanneke de Wit.


During this years she took part in several masterclass with renowned teacher like: Margreet Honig e Valerie Guillorit for the vocal technique, Paul Triepels e Tanya Aspelmeier for breathing, Elsina Jansen e Maria Paola Viano for drama, Hans Eijsackers e Eelko Molenaar  for the lieder repertoire, Pieter Jan Belder and Nico van der Meel for the baroque repertoire. During her studies she received precious advice from singers like Elisabetta Scano, Marcel Boone and Marcel Reijans.

As a soloist she performed in several venues in the Netherlands and in Italy such as, amongst the others, at the Muziekgebouw, the Concertgebouw and De Spiegel, accompanied by orchestras and chamber ensembles. 


Francesca made her Opera debut in 2017, in the role of Musetta in La Bohème, directed by Sybrand van der Werf. In the review from del Dagblad van het Noorden they wrote of her: 


  “Francesca Pusceddu stole the show in her first role as the sweet and sometimes exploding Musetta” 


In 2018 she was part of the Netherlads Radio Choir with whom she sang the Requiem of Verdi at the Concertgebouw di Amsterdam. 


In 2019 she was part of the Young Artist Program “Jonge Grote Zangers” (Amsterdam).

As a prizewinner in the Ente Concerti “Marialisa de Carolis” in Sassari, she recently made her Italian opera debut as Clorinda in Rossini’s La Cenerentola.


Since September 2019 Francesca has been selected to be part of the Dutch National Opera Academy: in the next production of DNOA she will be Servilia in “La Clemenza” di Tito by W.A. Mozart and Beth in “Little Women” by M. Adamo.
