With Albertine en cinq temps – L’opéra, soprano Monique Pagé returns to the stage with the works of Michel Tremblay; we remember her moving interpretation of Émilie Hudon in the opera Nelligan, set to music by André Gagnon.

She has sung in Canada, France, Spain, the United States, Russia, and the Middle East, and has collaborated with renowned ensembles such as the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, I Musici de Montréal, Chants Libres, l’Orchestre Métropolitain, l’Orchestre symphonique de Québec, the National Arts Centre Orchestra, the Société de musique contemporaine du Québec (SMCQ), and the Sinfonia de Lanaudière. An accomplished artist of refined musicality, Monique Pagé is also an inspired teacher who knows how to communicate her passion to young singers, notably at the Faculty of Music of the Université de Montréal, where she is a professor. A graduate of the Conservatoire de Musique et d’Art dramatique de Québec in the class of Jacqueline Martel-Cistellini, Monique Pagé is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Raoul-Jobin, John-Newmark, Diana-Soviero, and Joseph-Rouleau prizes.
