Acclaimed Lebanese-Canadian soprano, Miriam Khalil has been praised for “making her fine soprano express every emotion with exactness and feeling” by the Globe and Mail. This season she returns to the role of Mimì in La bohéme for the Canadian Opera Company, Marzelline in Beethoven’s Fidelio for Pacific Opera Victoria, and to the Victoria Symphony for their Viennese New Years gala. She was heard in Mahler’s Rückert Lieder for the Thunder Bay Symphony and performed Osvaldo Golijov’s Ayre with Pacific Opera Victoria and the Aventa Ensemble, a piece which has earned her a Juno nomination for best classical album of the year: vocal or choral. Next season Miriam looks forward to reprising Mimì in Calgary Opera’s production of La bohéme.
