Natalie Choquette
La Diva Extraordinaire

Her magnificent voice and singular humour … make her an artist of international stature, praised and applauded by all audiences around the world.

Born in Tokyo to diplomat parents, Natalie Choquette is a soprano like no other — She has a magnificent voice that takes us under the skin of comically over-the-top divas, brilliantly blending opera and humour, laughter and emotion. In 1993 she decided to infuse her opera singing with her tremendous sense of humour. The formula proved to be magical and her first comic diva character, La Fettucini, garnered praise from critics and audiences alike. In 2002, La Diva taped a new show for television, La Diva et le Maestro, with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Charles Dutoit that was broadcast throughout Canada, Europe and Asia.

Natalie Choquette has performed around the globe with engagements on four continents , notably in France during six weeks at the Théâtre L’Européen in Paris. Natalie continues to delight fans around the world performing in Saudi Arabia and in Vietnam as part of the Sommet de la francophonie, as well as in the United States and in Latin American countries.

Natalie's CD entitled Æterna, and in 2005 Æterna Romantica, won the Felix for Best Classical Album. The Æterna project has so far donated $20,000 to the Quebec Cancer Foundation with over 50,000 CDs sold.  Her new CD |Terra Bella" is out and available in all major stores.

TOURING SHOWS: Piano OR Piano with small ensemble
La Diva:
Opera is definitely not boring for the fans of La Diva. Audiences everywhere applaud and laugh uproariously at Natalie Choquette, whether she is singing a Turandot aria while decked out in hair curlers and slurping spaghetti, breaking out into a Neapolitan song while hanging laundry on stage, filing her fingernails while giving a superb rendition of “Summertime”, or when she sings Puccini’s “Nesson Dorma” refrain while gargling a mouthful of red wine…without missing a note! And her costumes by Rossignol are outrageously gorgeous.

CHILDREN'S TOURING SHOW -  with Piano
La Diva Malbouffa:  Children are loving Opera after seeing Mimi, la Diva Malbouffa, and Maestro Figaro.  They are on their way to the Grand Opera Gala, where she will sing a duet with her good friend, the famous opera star, DJ Rico the Organic Chicken.  Mimi shares her passion for opera (and French fries) with the audience, and explains its origins and characteristics by comparing it to a musical bedtime story.  However, greedy Mimi's weak spot for junk food turns into a drama when, after stuffing herself with fries, burgers, cola and ice cream, she starts suffering from indigestion, and loses her voice.  This fun-filled performance for children ages 7-13 will thrill and engage them with music, humour, and fantastic costumes and props.
