"Labelle is exceptional among early-music sopranos ... she manages to fill the concert hall with a naturally beautiful tone while maintaining a warm richness... She is simply that good, and cannot help it."
Thomas Busse, San Francisco Classical Voice

 

Travel back with Opera Lafayette to our chamber-ensemble origins, as we highlight the exquisite works of two of Baroque’s most beloved composers, George Frideric Handel and Johann Sebastian Bach. Experience the joy of a magnificent voice performing with virtuoso instrumentalists in a chamber setting as Dominique Labelle (Gluck’s Armide and Jenny in Monsigny’s Le Roi et le fermier) returns once again to the Opera Lafayette stage alongside principal orchestra players.
