Canada’s very own superstar soprano, Karina Gauvin, has impressed audiences and critics the world over with her luscious timbre, profound musicality and wide vocal range. The Globe and Mail calls her “one of the dream sopranos of our time.” A regular collaborator with conductors as diverse as Dutoit, Nagano, Nezet Seguin, Bichkov, Norrington, Hogwood, Rilling, Labadie, Rousset, Curtis, and Haim, Karina is one of the most respected sopranos of her generation and a national treasure.
“At the very heart of Alcina, Karina Gauvin opens an abyss, transcending a hallucinating vibration and signs with this interpretation of the title role, the most deeply moving without any doubt, since Arleen Auger…” – Diapason
