Stephanie Tritchew

Spotlight On: Stephanie Tritchew

From cycling across the east coast of Canada with The Bicycle Opera Project to taking the more formal stages of Calgary Opera and Opera Theater of Saint Louis, rising mezzo-soprano Stephanie Tritchew is a versatile, smart young artist.

Stephanie Tritchew in Carmen

Review: Show goes on as Calgary Opera goes to the bench

By ripple effect, Stephanie Tritchew, also from the Emerging Artists Program, was parachuted into the role of Mercedes, virtually without stage preparation... Tritchew fit in as Mercedes as if she had been singing the role all along.

Stephanie Tritchew with Bicycle Opera

In Review: Shadow Box

Shadow Box is not to be missed, and I'll tell you about a few of my highlights. Cecilia Livingston's The Yellow Wallpaper is an eerie story of a woman's struggle with mental illness, and her husband who struggles to understand her. Mezzo Stephanie Tritchew was beautifully tragic and not-quite-right, and we were immediately 'on her side.'

Stephanie Tritchew in Silent Night

Review: Calgary Opera presents powerful First World War drama in Silent Night

The smaller parts, sung by Stephanie Tritchew, Robert Clark, Aaron Dimoff, David Diston, and Kevin Meyers — all from the Emerging Artists Program — were also sung with conviction and were dramatically well integrated into the performance as a whole. Alain Coulombe was a strongly sung, entirely credible French General.

Stephanie Tritchew in Die tote Stadt

Review: Die Tote Stadt a milestone for Calgary Opera

Special mention should be made of the young singers who together comprised the theatrical players. Local singers, at least for the moment, they worked beautifully together to create the special world of fantasy in Paul’s mind. In brief mention, they included Chelsea van Pelt as Juliette, Stephanie Tritchew as Lucienne, Kevin Myers as Gaston and Victorin, Jason Ragan as Count Albert — all of whom sang and acted with remarkable confidence and energy.

Stephanie Tritchew in Albert Herring

Albert Herring Fifty Years On

Stephanie Tritchew came close to stealing the show as Nancy. She has a lovely voice and found an emotional depth in the role that seemed almost out of place in this somewhat caricature like comedy but which was, nonetheless, very affecting. The small orchestra sounded terrific too and the whole performance was more than competently directed by Leslie Dala.
