Raised in beautiful Niagara Falls, and currently based in the U.K., Canadian soprano Sarah Dufresne is known for her clarity of tone, rapid coloratura, and diverse repertoire. This season, Sarah joins the Royal Opera House’s Jette Parker Artists Programme, debuting on the stage of Covent Garden. Upcoming appearances with the ROH include Die Zauberflöte (Papagena), Tannhäuser (Hirt), Don Carlo (Voce dal Cielo), Le nozze di Figaro (Barbarina), The Rape of Lucretia (Lucia), and Arminio (Tusnelda).

Recently praised for her vocal technique and ease on the stage, Sarah’s 2021/2022 season included various concert performances with the l’Atelier lyrique, appearing with Chorus Niagara for Handel’s Messiah, as Anne for Ottawa Choral Society’s performance of Whitbourn’s Annelies, and covering various roles at l’Opéra de Montréal through her resident artist position. Sarah appeared on the mainstage at Place des Arts as Nora in Opéra de Montréal’s season opening production of Vaughn-William’s Riders to the Sea. In June of 2022, Sarah placed second in the Aria Division of the prestigious Concours Musical International de Montréal, garnering praise for her “tremendous dramatic presence,” and “astonishing clarity and vocal dexterity” [Opera Canada].
