Four sopranos – Gianna Corbisiero, Lauren Margison, Suzanne Taffot and Claire de Sévigné – and the Sinfonia de Lanaudière, directed by Stéphane Laforest, opened the Festival d’Opéra de Québec on a high note with a concert in the Basilique Notre-Dame de Québec.

The Festival d’Opéra de Québec opened on July 25 with a concert featuring the magnificent voices of four Canadian sopranos. Billed as a concert “under the stars” in the courtyard of the Vieux-Séminaire de Québec, it was moved inside the Basilique Notre-Dame de Québec due to possible thundershowers.
