Bio


Canadian soprano Meghan Lindsay has been praised by OPERA NEWS for a voice that "shines with greater vocal strength and control than ever before and dazzles with her coloratura passages." Following a performance of Alcina celebrated as "diabolically charming" and "graced with a bright, limpid instrument, luscious timbre and superb technique,"Meghan completed a run as Amour in Gluck’s Orphée et Eurydice with Opera Atelier and returned to the company to reprise the role Sidonie in Lully's Armide. She ended the season as Giunia in Canadian premiere of Mozart’s Lucio Silla. Meghan began the 2016/17 season as Belinda in Opera Atelier's Dido and Aeneas and will return Royal Opera of the Palace of Versailles as Nérine in Charpentier's Medée. 

In 2014, Meghan made her company debut with the Grammy-nominated early music company, Ars Lyrica, in a recording and ‘modern world’ premiere of Scarlatti’s La Sposa dei Cantici, as well as a program of Bach cantatas. Equally at home in Romantic repertoire, Meghan performed the 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. operatic debut with 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.Meghan 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.

As an accomplished concert artist, Meghan has been featured on CTV television and CBC radio broadcast. Meghan performed at Carnegie Hall as a member of the The Song Continues workshop with the Weil Institute and has presented recitals internationally, including a tour of China representing the Royal Conservatory of Music, Barrie’s Colours of Music, the Creemore Music Festival, the Houston Early Music Festival, and Holland’s Uitmarkt. Meghan is the winner of the Brian Law Competition and was a semi-finalist in the Queen Elisabeth Competition. She is an alumni of the Glimmerglass Festival Young Artist Program; The Toronto Summer Music Festival; the International Vocal Arts Institute; the Daniel Ferro Vocal Program; Opera Studio Nederland; and of The Royal Conservatory of Music’s Glenn Gould School, where she completed her Bachelor of Music and participated in the Artist Diploma Program.
