Dominique Labelle

Handel & Pergolesi

Throughout her career, soprano Dominique Labelle has fearlessly plumbed the technical and emotional depths of music, turning in performances of “almost alarming ferocity” (San Francisco Chronicle), possessed of “conviction but without exhibitionism” (De Telegraf), that have “the audience hanging on every note” (Boston Globe). Her passionate commitment to music-making has led to close and enduring collaborations with a number of the world’s most respected conductors and composers, such as Iván Fischer, Nicholas McGegan, Jos van Veldhoven, Jean-Marie Zeitouni, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Yehudi Wyner. She also treasures her long association with the late Robert Shaw.

Dominique first came to international prominence as Donna Anna in Peter Sellars’ daring production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, set in Spanish Harlem, which she performed in New York, Paris, and Vienna.

Most recently, Dominique was honored at the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorale's annual Winter 2017 Gala for extraordinary artistic contributions, performed at Göttingen International Handel Festival’s opening Galakonzert, and released and album, Mi Palpita Il Cor with Musica Pacifica.
