“An imaginative and committed soprano with ravishing high notes,” according to La Libre Belgique, Florie Valiquette is a Canadian singer on the rise. In the summer of 2015, Florie attracted attention at the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence when she sang the role of Milica in the new production of the opera Svadba by Ana Sokolović. She has performed on numerous prestigious international stages, including those of the Opéra Comique de Paris, the Opéra de Montréal, the Opéra de Montpellier, the Zürich Opera House, and the Dutch National Opera.
Her repertoire ranges from Baroque to contemporary, and she has worked with conductors such as William Christie, Ottavio Dantone, Kent Nagano, Giovanni Antonini, and Simone Young. She has performed concerts at the Verbier and Opéra de Vichy festivals, and with the MSO, the Orchestre Métropolitain, Les Violons du Roy, and the OSQ. After receiving her master’s degree in classical voice performance from the Université de Montréal, Florie was supported by the Fondation Jacqueline Desmarais and did advanced studies at the Atelier lyrique de l’Opéra de Montréal, the International Opera Studio of the Zürich Opera House, and with Marlena Malas in New York.
