Christiane Riel, soprano
Appreciated for more than the sheer beauty of her voice, Christiane Riel is recognized for the generosity and intensity of her interpretations. The heroines of Puccini, Verdi, and those of the French romantic repertoire encompass the very heart of her remarkable career.
After a triumphant debut with the Canadian Opera Company, Ms. Riel has enjoyed an international career throughout Canada, the United States, and Australia. A “heartbreakingly believable” Madama Butterfly, Ms. Riel’s Cio-Cio-San is acclaimed worldwide in over 18 different productions. Learn more
