"Stephanie Sanchez negotiated the pants role of Prince Orlofsky with an easy panache. Ms. Sanchez possesses a ripe, throbbing, womanly mezzo, so it is no small feat that she was able to bend it into service to suggest a bored young male character. Her/his party piece, Chacun a son gout was craftily vocalized, but it was when she could really let her voice roll out that we were treated to a major talent."
Ms. Sanchez joined Opera Theatre of Saint Louis for the Fall of 2020 as a Digital Studio Artist where she performed the role of Ruth in Pirates of Penzance and was the featured mezzo soloist in their highly praised Holiday Concert. This summer she looks forward to returning to The Glimmerglass Festival as Ines and the Azucena cover in Il trovatore. Ms. Sanchez will also be featured in an all Wagner concert with Maestro Joseph Colaneri conducting.
Ms. Sanchez has performed everything from iconic trouser roles to florid bel canto roles to the juicy Germanic repertoire. Enjoy this clip from Opera Theatre of Saint Louis' New Years Eve Celebration!
