Described by critics as “a voice to watch”, soprano Suzanne Taffot stands out for her rich, colorful timbre, her ease on stage and her touching interpretations. After making her debut with the Orchestre Métropolitain in Fauré’s Requiem, Suzanne Taffot took part in the recording of melodies and arias by the famous composer Gershwin, with the Sinfonia de Lanaudière orchestra conducted by Stéphane Laforest.
She has also appeared as a soloist at the Opéra de Montréal, Opéra de Québec, Opéra de Limoges, Opéra de Shenzen in China, the Kosice Symphony House in Slovakia, and the Gärtenerplatz Theater in Munich, where she was a resounding success as Mimì in Puccini’s La Bohème. She was soloist in Brahms’ Requiem with the Orchestre Métropolitain conducted by Maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin (a concert which was nominated in the Romantic Music category of the Prix Opus 2023, awarded by the CQM – Conseil québécois de la musique) and brilliantly interpreted the role of the Cantatrice in the world premiere of the opera Yourcenar – une île de passions composed by Éric Champagne and co-produced by the Opéra de Montréal and the Opéra de Québec.
More recently, Suzanne brilliantly interpreted the role of Dzifa in the world premiere of the opera Of The Sea with Tapestry Opera in Toronto, a role for which she was nominated by the Dora Academy Awards in the “Outstanding Performances” category for 2023.
Suzanne holds a Master’s degree in Opera from the University of Montreal and studies under the direction of Adrienne Savoie.
