Luc Robert has a remarkable tenor voice and is one of the rising Canadian artists on the operatic and concert stages. He sang at the opera houses of Frankfurt, Toronto, Dortmund, Helsinki, as well as the Metropolitan Opera in New York. On his debut album for Estonian Record Productions he remains faithful to Verdi and sings arias from La Traviata, Nabucco, Rigoletto et al. Luc Robert’s success began in 2012 when he made his debut as Rodolfo in Verdi’s Luisa Miller at Malmo Opera, Sweden. During the same season he also sang with great success Gounod’s Faust at the Estonian National Opera, Cavaradossi (Tosca) at the Pacific Opera in Victoria, and Nicias (Thais) with the Finnish National Opera. A former firefighter, Luc Robert started his music studies at the “Conservatoire de Musique de Quebec” in Montreal and joined the Canadian Opera Company Studio Ensemble in Toronto in 2002. “Debuting tenor Luc Robert sounded to me like one of the better vocal finds for The Met in recent years. His voice is clear and his delivery passionate yet musical; a touch of huskiness here and there was not a detriment to enjoying his vocalism, and he had the power to pierce through the ensemble at will. His voice ‘spoke’ well in the large space and he had a good top-C to end the Act I trio.” (Oberon’s Grove, 2015)
