Canadian soprano Mireille Asselin performs the roles of Flore and Proserpine in the March 2014 staging by Boston Early Music Festival of two operas by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, co-presented by Pacific Opera Victoria and the Early Music Society of the Islands.

Mireille Asselin has been deemed “superb” by the Los Angeles Times and praised by Opera Canada for her “soprano that charms and brightens a room” and “vivacious stage presence.”

Mireille completed her Masters of Music at Yale University's prestigious Opera Program in May 2010, and has been a member of the Canadian Opera Company's Ensemble Studio where in the 2012–2013 season she performed Adele in Die Fledermaus and Servilia in Mozart's La clemenza di Tito.

Other credits include Phénice/Lucinde in Lully's Armide with Glimmerglass Opera; Galatea and Servilia in Opera Atelier's productions of Acis and Galatea and La clemenza di Tito; and Flore/Proserpine in Boston Early Music Festival's La Couronne de Fleurs/La Descente d'Orphée aux Enfers.

Mireille has appeared on concert stages across North America and in England, most notably at Carnegie Hall where she débuted singing Dona nobis pacem by Vaughan Williams in April 2011 and returned to give a recital in January 2012.
