Dominique Labelle

Dominique Labelle was born in Montreal and studied at McGill and Boston Universities. She broke into the global music scene after her performance of Donna Anna in Peter Sellars’ production of Don Giovanni met resounding success in New York, Paris and Vienna. She is known foremost as an interpreter of the Baroque repertoire, mainly Händel and Bach, but she also loves to sing contemporary compositions. She has worked alongside such conductors and composers as Nicholas McGegan of the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra (Händel: Atalanta, Alexander’s Feast, Teseo; Mendelssohn: Lobgesang), Jean-Marie Zeitouni (Britten: Les Illuminations – with I Musici de Montréal; Beethoven: Symphony No. 9; Brahms: Requiem; Mahler: Symphony No. 2 – with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra) and the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Yehudi Winer. She has taken part in several successful productions alongside Iván Fischer (Mozart: The Marriage of Figaro; Bach: Mass in B minor, St Matthew Passion; Mozart: Requiem). While the pinnacle of her many recorded performances came in Monsigny’s opera, Le Déserteur, with the Opera Lafayette and Ryan Brown, she has also made three recordings with Nicholas McGegan and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra (Händel: Teseo, Atalanta; Scarlatti: Il vespero di Santa Cecilia). Ms. Labelle is Professor of Voice at the Schulich School of Music at McGill University.
