Biography

Born in Montreal, Dominique Labelle first came to international prominence as Donna Anna in Peter Sellar’s stunning PepsiCo Summerfare Festival production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, set in Spanish Harlem, which she performed in New York, Paris and Vienna. Since then she has been acclaimed in a repertoire that ranges from Bach to 2006 Pulitzer Prize winner Yehudi Wyner. She has worked with conductors from Boulez to Zinman, and orchestras from Atlanta to San Francisco. She is a regular guest soloist in Europe.

Whether in opera, in concert, in recital, or in oratorio, the luminous beauty of her charismatic stage presence is unmistakable. The San Francisco Chronicle called Handel’s Belshazzar “a stunner even among the lofty company of Handel’s other oratorios”, and in a performance by Nicholas McGegan and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra gave top vocal honors to Labelle who sang Nitocris “with a glorious combination of dramatic fervor, tonal luxuriance and pinpoint accuracy.”

The Boston Globe and the Boston Herald have agreed, “none can top her performing Bach”. Of his St. Matthew Passion the Herald reviewer noted “Labelle singing ‘Aus Liebe’ in the second half of this extremely long program, made everyone forget how long they were sitting”. Following a performance of Bach’s Cantata no. 202, a Boston Globe critic wrote, “Really, everybody needs more Dominique in their lives. There’s operatic glamour in the voice and technique and control to burn”
