Dominique Labelle


Whether in opera, in concert, in recital, or in oratorio, the luminous beauty of Dominique Labelle’s voice, and her charismatic stage presence, are unmistakable. Born in Montreal, Ms. Labelle first came to international prominence as Donna Anna in Peter Sellars’ stunning 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 and Handel to 2006 Pulitzer Prize winner, Yehudi Wyner, and has worked with conductors from Boulez to Zinman, and orchestras from Atlanta to San Francisco and throughout Europe.

Ms. Labelle’s many recordings, with repertoire from the 17th to the 21st centuries, appear on the Virgin Veritas, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, RCA Victor Red Seal, Koss, Denon, New World, and Musica Omnia labels.

Dominique is related to Dame Emma Albani DBE, a leading soprano of the 19th and early 20th century, who was the first Canadian singer to become an international star.  Labelle is a National Winner of the Metropolitan Opera competition, the recipient of a George London Foundation Award, and Boston University’s Distinguished Alumni Award.

Ms. Labelle made her National Symphony Orchestra during its 1997 Mozart Festival.
