23/24 Season Artist

Pascale Beaudin

Pascale Beaudin’s incomparable diction, intelligent musicality and expressivity make her much- sought after for concert and recital work. She has graced operatic stages in North America and Europe in roles such as Zerlina, Papagena, Oscar, and Marzelline, earning praise from the the New York Times and Opera News Magazine. Of her Fiordiligi, The Washington Post music critic reported that she sang “the aria “Per pietà” with such deliberate quiet elegance and restraint that it was a highlight not just of the evening, but also of my year.”

The Acadian soprano has been a soloist with Chatham Baroque, the Orchestre Métropolitain, the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec, the Lanaudière Festival, Vancouver Early Music, the Lamèque Early Music Festival, and the Orford Festival. She has created roles for the Ensemble Contemporain de Montréal and toured Belgium with Hockey Noir, a contemporary opera that fused hockey and organized crime in a film noir atmosphere.

Featured on the critically acclaimed 5-disc release Mélodies complètes de Francis Poulenc with pianist Olivier Godin, she is also part of the world premiere recordings of Les femmes vengées by Philidor, with Opera Lafayette, and Nicandro e Fileno by Lorenzani with Les Boréades. Her performances in Léonore by Gaveaux and Leonore by Beethoven with Opera Lafayette have been released to DVD on Naxos.

Pittsburgh audiences last saw Ms. Beaudin in Chatham Baroque and Quantum Theatre’s joint production of Idaspe. Future engagements include returning to Opera Lafayette in Les Fêtes de Thalie, conducted by Christophe Rousset and directed by Claire van Kampen.

Pascale is a member of the Four Nations Ensemble, based in New York and specializing in Baroque chamber music. After years of living in Montreal, she’s happily made a home in Pittsburgh with husband Scott and their dog Ruby.
