Franco-German, perfectly bilingual, daughter of an opera singer and a pianist, Belinda Kunz was immersed in the world of opera and has been singing since she was a child. After brilliant literary studies at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, she chose to devote herself to the operatic career.

Trained by Ivan Geissler and Jean-Dominique Burroni, Belinda Kunz also received advice from Raina Kabaivanska, Evelyn Brunner, Theodor Guschlbauer, and took part in Ludovic Tézier's masterclass at the Opéra National de Lorraine with the Orchestre Symphonique et Lyrique de Nancy.

From 2011, she joins the company Opéra Autrement, of which she is one of the main soloists. She interprets Orpheus, Cherubino, 2nd Lady, Carmen, Mercedes, Nicklausse, Prinz Orlovsky, the Grand Duchess, as well as the German repertoire. Noticed in 2016 by Martin Gester, she performs with the Parlement de Musique in Strasbourg, joins the Generation Baroque project 2018 and participates under its aegis in the creation of La Barca d'Amore, a baroque and contemporary cabaret.

On stage, she is directed by Michèle Addala, Michel Archimbaud, Robert Fortune and Benjamin Prins. In concert, she sang from 2017 to 2020 under the baton of Catherine Bolzinger as a member of the female vocal sextet Voix de Stras dedicated to the contemporary repertoire (Opéra de Reims, Opéra de Marseille, Région Grand Est, Komitas Museum in Yerevan...) and under the baton of Theodor Guschlbauer.

Belinda Kunz performs regularly in recital with the pianists Valentin Mansard (Wigmore Hall International Song Competition 2019) and Jean-Dominique Burroni, from the Paris National Opera, with whom she will soon present Schubert's Winterreise.

She is at the origin of several creations: Voix en Miroir with the poet Irina Breitenstein (2013-14), Un Mundo Raro (since 2019), with cello and jazz guitar, and Opera Jazz Fusion (since 2020), with jazz guitar and piano. There she researched forms and repertoire and founded the ensemble Soleils Parallèles, named after a lied by Schubert, Nebensonnen.
