KIRSTEN LEBLANC

Soprano

"... Kirsten LeBlanc in the title role had exactly the right voice, pure in the higher register, warm and lyrical below, and combined a relaxed musical style with an engaging stage presence." 

                                            -Anthony Ogus, Opera Now

"La cerise sur le gâteau, c'est la soprano Kirsten LeBlanc (Fiordiligi) dont la voix ample autant dans le registre que la puissance et la qualité du jeu dramatique fait d'elle une artiste que l'on retrouvera bientôt sur d'autres (grandes) scènes."

                         - Michel Joanny-Furtin, Ludwig Van Montréal
