Born in Saguenay, Quebec, Pierre Heault (also known as Pierrot) is making his debut at Pacific Opera as a young singer for the Civic Engagement Artist Residency.

Developing an interest for stage performance from a very young age, his passion for movement and music first oriented him toward circus arts. At 15, he was admitted to the prestigious National Circus School in Montreal, graduating in 2007 with a specialty in swinging trapeze.

After many engagements internationally and locally, he settled in Montreal and completed his Bachelors of Music at Conservatoire de musique de Montréal as a student of soprano Aline Kutan. He performed the roles of Tamino in The Magic Flute and Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus during his stay. He also took part in productions of Dido & Aeneas (First sailor) and l’Enfant et les sortilèges (Petit vieillard).

Pierre is now pursuing is multi-disciplinary journey as a musician, creator, and circus artist. He is currently perfecting his singing craft with mezzo-soprano Ariane Girard and completing his Masters in Opera Performance at Université de Montréal under the guidance of Richard Margison, where he sang in Mozart’s Idomeneo (Arbace).

He made his professional opera debut in Europe as both a singer and a trapeze artist in Circus Days and Nights, a new opera by Philipp Glass, in which Pierre created the role of La Louisa at Malmö Opera.
