Gaetan Laperriere is described as “...a revolution...a great baritone voice and an actor of perfect naturalness” by La Presse of Montréal and journalists worldwide. Established as one of Canada’s greatest classical artists and a regular favorite at the Canadian Opera Company, the breadth of his lyric baritone repertoire reaches into the heroic Italian roles so suited to his instrument.  He recently added the title role of Rigoletto and Scarpia in Tosca with acclaimed performances around the world. The Boston Globe hailed him as an “... idealistic Rodrigo, the Canadian baritone Gaetan Laperriere was outstanding for nobility of tone, line and characterization.”  Additionally, in the U.S. he performs leading roles with the San Francisco Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Florida Grand Opera, Washington Opera, Minnesota Opera, Dallas Opera, Baltimore Opera, Santa Fe Opera and Boston Lyric Opera.
