Whether in opera, concert, recital, or oratorio, the luminous beauty of soprano Dominique Labelle’s voice and her charismatic stage presence are unmistakable. Recent engagements include Handel’s Messiah with the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal (Kent Nagano) and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra (Gerard Schwartz); Yehudi Wyner’s Fragments from Antiquity (Lexington Symphony) and ten performances with Nicholas McGegan at the Göttingen Handel Festival, including a Gala tour celebrating his tenure as its artistic director. She and Mr. McGegan also performed Handel’s Orlando and Alexander’s Feast with San Francisco’s Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra. Recent appearances with another favorite collaborator, Hungarian conductor Iván Fischer, include Countess Almaviva in Mozart’s Nozze di Figaro at Teatro Pérez Galdós in Las Palmas and in Budapest; Bach’s B-minor Mass in Washington, DC; Bach’s St. Matthew Passion (Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra) and Mozart’s Requiem in New York with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.  Ms. Labelle’s forays into contemporary music include Shostakovich’s Seven Romances on Poetry of Alexander Blok (Mt. Desert Festival of Chamber Music); Britten’s Les Illuminations (New England String Ensemble and Susan Daveny Wyner), and John Harbison’s The Rewaking (Lydian String Quartet, Musica Omnia). Her recent discography includes Monsigny’s Le Déserteur (Opera Lafayette and Ryan Brown, Naxos) and Handel’s Arminio (Virgin Classics), winner of the Handel Prize.
