Hailed by critics as a singer with “lovely stage presence,” a “silvery tone,” and “exquisite mezza di voce,” Canadian soprano Meghan Lindsay excels across many genres. She is now in her sixth-season as a principal artist with Opera Atelier.

This fall marks the recording release of Ars Lyrica’s La Sposa dei Cantici by Scarlatti with Ms Lindsay as featured soloist.

In the 2015-16 season she triumphed in the title role of Alcina and completed a run as Amour in Gluck’s Orphée et Eurydice with Opera Atelier and returned to reprise the role Sidonie in Armide, ending the season as Giunia in Mozart’s Lucio Silla

Ms Lindsay debuted with Ars Lyrica in 2014 at the Houston Early Music Festival in works by Scarlatti and Bach. She sang Venus in Lully’s Persée with Opera Atelier at Versailles in a past season where the company returned with a tour of Armide.

She has sung the role of Agathe in Opera Atelier's Der Freischütz, sang the title role of Luisa Miller with Opera Nova Scotia and Mimi in La bohème with The Northern Lights Festival. She made her U.S. debut under the auspices of Opera Columbus as Donna Anna in Don Giovanni and returned that season in the role of Sidonie/Nymphe des Eaux with the company in Lully's Armide in Toronto, The Royal Opera of the Palace of Versailles and the Glimmerglass Festival.

In 2010-11 Ms. Lindsay was a young artist with Opera Studio Nederland where she made her international debut as Euridice in Pierre Audi’s production of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo and her Concertgebouw debut performing excerpts from Don Giovanni and Le nozze di Figaro. That season she performed the role of Fiordiligi in Opera Studio Nederland’s production of Così fan tutte and Contessa in Opera on the Avalon’s Le nozze di Figaro. She also performed the title role in Massenet's Cendrillon, the première opera at Toronto's Koerner Hall with the Royal Conservatory Orchestra. Other highlights include performing Richard Danielpour’s Sonnets to Orpheus under the baton of Paul Nadler at Joan Dornemann’s inaugural music festival, Viva Virginia.
