Stephanie Blythe’s performances are “so powerful and so artful that she made the term ‘commanding the stage’ seem completely inadequate,” raves the Seattle Times. The acclaimed mezzo-soprano is the recipient of a 1999 Richard Tucker Award, the 2007 Opera News Award, and was named Musical America’s Vocalist of the Year in 2009. Blythe has appeared at such celebrated venues as the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Seattle Opera, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, and the Opéra National de Paris. She has performed the title roles in Carmen, Samson et Dalila, Orfeo ed Euridice, Tancredi, and Giulio Cesare. In the 2018-19 season, she returned to the Metropolitan Opera for Il trittico and La fille du régiment, and made her debut at Dallas Opera in Falstaff.
