Known for her rich and vibrant voice, Elisabeth Boudreault distinguishes herself through the delicacy of her interpretations. Four-time winner of the Canadian Music Competition, the coloratura soprano has also been awarded 7 prizes from Les Jeunes Ambassadeurs Lyriques in 2016. Elisabeth made her opera debut as Lisa in Bellini’s Sonnambula at the age of 16. Since then, she has performed several roles such as Die Königin der Nacht in Zauberflöte (Opera NUOVA), Sœur Constance in Le Dialogue des Carmélites (Opera McGill), Sophie in Werther, Grande Sacerdotessa in Aïda (Opéra du Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean), Mlle Silberklang in Der Schauspieldirektor (Festival d’Opéra de Québec) and Frasquitta in Carmen (Société d’Art Lyrique du Royaume). Boudreault also held the role of Daughter in James Garner's "East o’ the Sun, West o’ the Moon" for it's North American premiere (Opera McGill). This performance led her to a further collaboration with the British composer, who is currently writing the part of Hero in his new opera Much Ado specifically for her voice. Showing a taste for contemporary music, she has among others participated to the creation of Léa (L’hiver attend beaucoup de moi, Musique 3 Femmes) and the American premier of Th(S)inking Survival (McGill Contemporary Ensemble). Internationally, the young soprano has performed in the Netherlands (Grachtenfestival), in Slovakia (Košice Philhamonic Orchestra) and in Japan (recital tour). Recipient of a scholarship from Le Centre Français de Promotion Lyrique from L’Opéra de Massy, Elisabeth Boudreault studied under the tutelage of soprano Aline Kutan at McGill University.
