Born into a family of professional opera singers, mezzo soprano Katrina
Corbeil possesses many fine artistic qualities. A graduate from the Saint-Hyacinthe
College majoring in theater with a “Diploma of Excellence”,
she began her artistic career as an actress and has made appearances in
television productions and cinema.
Katrina began her classical vocal studies with
France Dion and continues her voice training with bass-baritone Claude Corbeil. Her vocal qualities, her musicality, her versatility and strong stage presence
allow her to distinguish herself in many singing styles – opera, operetta, broadway and the
interpretation of popular songs. In 1996 she was awarded the second prize
in the “Classical Vocal Category” of the NATS Competition (National
Association of Teachers of Singing) and in 1995 and 1996 she won the first
prize in the “Popular Vocal Category” in the same competition and
was a finalist in 1997 in the “Concours de la Monteregie”.
In June 2009, Katrina appeared to great success as
Marcellina in The Marriage of Figaro with the
Green Mountain Opera Festival in Vermont. Other notable
engagements include the
title role in
Jacques Offenbach's La Périchole with l'Opéra Bouffe
de Québec in Montreal and Siebel (Faust) with Opéra-Théâtre de Rimouski. Ms. Corbeil
appeared in a theatre
production of Jean Genet's Les Bonnes with staging by Jacques Rossi at the Théâtre de la Chapelle in
Montreal. She debuted with l'Opéra de Québec as Kate (Madama
Butterfly) and sang a recital in the Bravopéra Series in Rimouski.
In the summer of 2006, Katrina returned to the Opéra Théâtre de
Rimouski in the title role of Carmen.
