Ms. Fredette included the much-loved Puccini aria,"O Mio Babbino Caro" which she delivered with lyrical intensity and heart-breaking tenderness: her playful eroticism is Bizet’s "Habeñera" enlivened further by a foray into the audience to tantalize some of the male patrons: and her evocation of nightclub intimacy in the haunting melody of Malty’s "Autumn".

....The Tribune

With her exudinous poise and luxurious stroll, the audience was conscious of every breath and note. In a bold entrance, Fredette captured the attention with Habeñera from Carmen to set the stage for the operatic portion of the program. It was not just the crystalline quality of her voice, but the whole passionate performance of this and other love songs. According to one audience member, it’s like medicine. No wonder.

Gisèle Fredette ate up, chewed up the scenery. I mean absolutely chewed up the scenery as the Princess di Bouillon, Adrianna Lecouvreur’s arch-enemy. .... CFMX review by Paula Citron

....The Toronto Star

Am 9. August hatten wir besonderes Glück, weil die wunderhübsche und talentierte Sängerin Gisèle Fredette uns mit Liedern aus der Oper "Carmen", aus den Musicals "Showboat" und "Phantom of the Opera" auf äusserst angenehme Weise unterhielt. Das Publikum, zum grössten Teil deutschsprechend, war begeistert.

....Deuutsche Presse

Complice avec son public, l’envoûtante Gisèle Fredette a entraîné la foule sur un air de l’opéra Carmen de Bizet, puis, dans un tout autre style, a chanté avec sensibilitée l’Air du temps de Marcien Ferland.

....La Liberté

Gisèle Fredette was a hilarious Katisha in Brian MacDonald’s Mikado production in Ottawa, Victoria and Mississauga.

....Toronto Operetta Newsletter

Toronto Operetta Theatre’s production of My Fair Lady is the company’s first American musical. Mezzo-soprano Gisèle Fredette is particularly vulgar Eliza Doolittle, probably because she has a few Carmens under her belt, and her transformation into a lady keeps some of the character’s rough edges, which makes for an interesting and explosive ralationship between Henry Higgins and herself . The two are an engaging, and more to the point, believable couple - in operetta terms that is.

....The Globe and Mail

Also notable were veteran mezzo Gisèle Fredette's amazingly supple takes on the title role of the widow.
