The Canadian soprano, Natalie Choquette, was born in Tokyo to diplomat parents. She is a soprano like no other - 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.
In 2004, Natalie Choquette recorded her 10th CD entitled "Æterna", and in 2005 "Æterna Romantica", a CD of great romantic classics of all times was released. Both Aeterna CD's won the Felix for Best Classical Album at the ADISQ Gala. The third CD of the Æterna trilogy, "Æterna Celesta", was launched in fall 2006. It should be noted that Æterna projects, both CD's and shows, support the Quebec Cancer Foundation of which Natalie Choquette is spokesperson. The Æterna project has so far donated $20,000 to the Foundation with over 50,000 CDs sold. In 2006-2007, Natalie has toured her Æterna show, performing in more than 40 communities with local choral societies.
In the spring of 2006, Natalie Choquette launched a new DVD, "La Diva", which includes, in addition to the entire live production of La Diva et le Maestro, the brand-new “Vox Divina” video excerpt from the recent album "Æterna Romantica", the multiple award-winning short film Fata Morgana, as well as a compilation of the show’s highlights.
