Dominique Labelle has fearlessly plumbed the technical and emotional depths of music, turning in performances possessed of “conviction without exhibitionism” (De Telegraf), that have “the audience hanging on every note” (Boston Globe). Recent and upcoming engagements include Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with Carmel Bach Festival; performances of Handel's Teseo with Nicholas McGegan and Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, and Handel's Messiah with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. Another favorite collaborator is Hungarian conductor Iván Fischer, under whose baton she has performed Bach’s Magnificat with the Budapest Festival Orchestra. Contemporary music credits include Shostakovich’s Seven Romances on Poetry of Alexander Blok; Britten’s Les Illuminations, and John Harbison’s The Rewaking (recorded for Musica Omnia). Recently, she performed the role of Polissena in Handel's Radamisto with Opera Lafayette in Washington, DC and New York City. Her most recent recording, released in April 2019 is the Stabat Mater by Luigi Boccherini with Sarasa Ensemble under Naxos. In 2014, Dominique became Professor of Voice at the Schulich School of Music at her alma mater, McGill University. In May of 2018, she was the recipient of The Schulich School of Music Outstanding Teacher Award, and is a recipient of a Ruby Award from Opera Canada.
