In the line of a rich and eclectic discography, Marie-Nicole Lemieux’s new recital, recorded with leading North American classical and baroque orchestra Les Violons du Roy, is devoted to the first decades of classical opera era. As always, Marie-Nicole Lemieux has combined hits of the repertoire (Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro) with much less renowned pieces to which she gives new light, such as Graun’s 'Montezuma', Gluck’s 'Iphigénie en Aulide' or young Mozart’s 'Mitridate'. The warm and sensitive voice of Marie-Nicole Lemieux as well as the very precise and specific rhythm provided by Bernard Labadie’s orchestra perfectly combine to draw a complete range of musical colours.
