The retired medical adviser of the Opéra de Montréal and Orchestre Metropolitain has just set up an agency for classical singers.

Dr Peter Forbes has begun by signing Tomás Azcárate, Maxim Bernard, Florence Bourget, Andréanne Brisson Paquin, Scott Brooks, Susan Elizabeth Brown, Ania Hejnar, Beste Kalender, Philippe Prud’homme, Scott Rumble, Ian Sabourin, Geoffrey Schellenberg, Jeffrey Strand, and Stéphane Tétreault.


  • Michael says:

    Stephane Tetreault is a cellist.

  • Emil says:

    Andreanne Brisson Paquin is very good. I think Florence Bourget is a graduate of the Opéra de Montréal youth program. Tétreault is a cellist, protégé of Yuli Turovsky and of the late Jacqueline Desmarais, who bought Bernard Greenhouse’s Stradivarius cello for him. Quite well regarded in Québec.

  • JussiB says:

    Dr Dulcamara has finally gone legit.
