Winnipeg soprano Lara Ciekiewicz (UWinnipeg BA Hons ‘02) is a compelling and dynamic singing-actress. Manitoba Opera and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra have been recent collaborators. Her talent and success were acknowledged locally by the 2015 Winnipeg Arts Council’s RBC “On the Rise Award”.

She is “…a versatile stage chameleon, able to crack viewers up one minute with her razor-sharp comic timing, before breaking their hearts the next with soulful characterizations.” – Holly Harris, Winnipeg Free Press

“She is intense, genuine and moving. Her singing is sublime and her acting is compelling. She possesses all the qualities of a future diva.” – Pierre Meunier, La Liberté
