Born in Saguenay, Québec, Canadian soprano Marie-Eve Munger enjoys a flourishing career in both North America and Europe.  She earned a solid reputation for her strong stage presence – “she stole the show” (The Washington Post) – and for her voice “warm, lyrical” (The Associated Press) with “glassy-clear coloratura” (The New York Times).

Recent successes include her debut with Lyric Opera of Chicago in Massenet’s Cendrillon, Teatro alla Scala, Barcelona’s Liceu and Festival d’Aix-en-Provence in Patrice Chéreau’s production of Elektra, La Monnaie with the world premiere of Pinocchio, Opéra de Marseille in My Fair Lady, Opéra de Montréal in Roméo et Juliette, Munich’s Bayericher Rundfunks orchestra in Lakmé and l’Enfant et les Sortilèges, Opéra de Lausanne for Ariadne auf Naxos and My Fair Lady, Chicago Symphony Orchestra in L’Enfant et les Sortilèges, and Paris Opéra Comique in Le Pré aux Clercs, Fantasio and Bohème. She worked with conductors such as Esa-Pekka Salonen, Kent Nagano, Sir Andrew Davis, Symeon Bychkov, Paul Daniels, Paul McCreesh.

Based in France, her projects for the 2019-2020 season include Ophélie in Hamlet for Angers-Nantes Opéra and Opéra de Rennes, the Countess Adèle in Rossini’s Le Comte Ory for Opéra de Toulon, Rosalinde in Fledermaus with Opéra de Québec, Fire and Nightingale in L’Enfant et les Sortilèges with Québec Symphony Orchestra, Händel’s Deborah with Trinity Wall Street, and several recitals in her hometown.

At home with contemporary music, she sings the Fairy in Boesmans/Pommerat’s Pinocchio with Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, La Monnaie de Munt in Brussels and Opéra de Dijon; and she created the role of La Colorature in Frédéric Verrières’s The Second Woman at the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord in Paris. Montréal Symphony Orchestra and Kent Nagano commissioned for her Paradis Perdu to composer Régis Campo, she sangs in Pessons’s Pastorale at the Théâtre du Châtelet and sang Mauro Lanza’s piece Nubi non scoppiano per il peso at the Strasbourg Musica Festival. She also collaborated with composer Julian Wachner as librettist for the oratorio Come, my dark-eyed one.

Marie-Eve Munger earned her master’s degree from the Schulich School of Music at McGill University. She won first prize at the Marmande International Voice Competition in 2007 and won the Choquette-Symcox award from the Jeunesses Musicales du Canada in 2012.
