“Baritone Tyler Duncan is that rare mixture of elegant phrasing and resonant power. – Toronto Star
DANIEL OKULITCH bass-baritone
SUN DEC 4, 2011 2PM
Daniel Okulitch, an arresting presence on stage with a powerful voice to match, makes his Toronto debut. He has received critical acclaim for his portrayal of title roles Figaro and Don Giovanni and for creating the title role in the world premiere of Howard Shore’s The Fly with the Los Angeles Opera. His most recent recording, The New American Art Song, is just the latest chapter in an impressive career of adventure and top flight artistry.
"...Okulitch’s Figaro is the stuff of greatness. He is… the irresistible focus of attention every second he’s on stage." – Vancouver Sun
JULIE BOULIANNE mezzo-soprano
SUN FEB 26, 2012 2PM
The New York Times described Julie Boulianne’s voice as “subtle and pure.” Last season, she made her Metropolitan Opera debut as Diane in Iphigénie en Tauride and then appeared again as Stéphano in Roméo et Juliette under the baton of Placido Domingo. She is a Grammy Award nominee and winner of many honours including the Prix Lyrique Français.
[I]t’s French-Canadian mezzo-soprano Boulianne who is the one to watch… Her voice has both sweetness and bite, with hints of darker and deeper notes to come, all boding well for meatier roles down the line.” The Globe and Mail
THU MAY 3, 2012 8PM
Canadian soprano Layla Claire has become one of the most sought-after young artists on the opera and concert stage. She made her Metropolitan Opera debut last season as Tebaldo in Verdi’s Don Carlo and returns to the Met twice this season, as Helena in The Enchanted Island and Gianetta inL’Elisir d’Amore. This fall she appears in concert with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
“A rich, luminous instrument…and sensitive, expressive singing” – Chicago Classical Review
