Marie-Nicole Lemieux

It is no wonder that Marie-Nicole Lemieux shines today in the world of singing: the singer like the woman radiates an aura that belongs only to the greatest.

She has then begun an international career and now sings on the world’s most prestigious stages: New York, Milan, London, Paris, Salzburg, Zürich, Vienna, Madrid…

Her powerful voice, her superb sense of line and a faultless virtuosity as well as her sense of nuance and drama allows her to triumph in various repertoires. The beginning of her career is marked by baroque music (Orfeo ed Euridice, Giulio Cesare, Ariodante, Orlando Furioso, Salomon…). The evolution of her voice soon allowed her to take on the French repertoire of the 19th century (Les Troyens, Samson et Dalila, Carmen…), Rossini (Guillaume Tell, Tancredi, L’Italiana in Algeri…) and Verdi (Falstaff, Il trovatore, Un ballo in maschera…).

She is also regularly invited to perform in concert alongside prestigious orchestras and under the baton of renowned conductors, such as William Christie, Myung-whun Chung, Charles Dutoit, Iván Fischer, Mikko Franck, Daniele Gatti, Bernard Haitink, Daniel Harding, Paavo Järvi, Bernard Labadie, Louis Langrée, Kurt Masur, Kent Nagano, John Nelson, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Gianandrea Noseda, Antonio Pappano, Vasily Petrenko, Michel Plasson, Michael Schønwandt, Pinchas Steinberg, Pinchas Zukerman…

She is acclaimed as a peerless recital artist with an exceptional vocal palette, having a special talent for French and Russian songs, as well as German lieder. Her rich and varied discography has often been rewarded and, in 2017, she started a collaboration with Warner Classics.

Marie-Nicole Lemieux is a Knight of the National Order of Quebec, Compagne des Arts et des Lettres du Québec, member of the Order of Canada and of the Order of La Pléiade. She also has a Doctor Honoris Causa delivered by the Université du Québec in Chicoutimi.
