Bernard has been routinely engaged to sing the role of Giulietta in the new production of [Offenbach's] the Hoffmann’s Tales at the Leipzig Opera Theater in Leipzig, Germany and at La Fenice in Venice, Italy. She sang Métella in La Vie Parisienne by Offenbach at the Opéra Comique in Paris in more than 270 performances, and she sang the lead role in La Périchole by Offenbach at the Opéra Comique in Paris in more than 80 performances.
