In 2015 soprano Mireille Asselin made waves by jumping in as Adele for opening night
of DIE FLEDERMAUS at the Metropolitan Opera. The critics raved that she “stole the
show” hailing it as one of New York’s “most enchanting performances of 2015”. This
year marks Mireille’s fifth season at the Met, where she debuted as Poussette in
MANON. As a respected performer of early music she appears regularly with Opera
Atelier, the Boston Early Music Festival and other period ensembles. Ms. Asselin made
her European operatic debut in ’14 singing Andromède in Lully’s PERSÉE at the Royal
Opera of the Palace of Versailles and her Carnegie Hall recital debut in 2012. This season
she released an album with the Amici Chamber Ensemble “Inspired by Canada – Notre
Pays” on Marquis Records.
Mireille is a graduate of the Canadian Opera Company Studio, Yale University and the
Royal Conservatory of Music.
