Hansel / Hansel and Gretel - Opera San José 2019

"Hansel and Gretel was not without passionate singers. In particular, Stephanie Sanchez playing Hansel and Elena Galván cast as Gretel created a mesmerizing harmony of voices. Not only did their youthful energy and amazing acting seem to paint the image of two young children, their compelling voices encompassed all that opera is known for."

SJ Crown & Shield

Prince Orlofsky / Die Fledermaus - Opera San José 2019

"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."

Opera Today

Olga / Eugene Onegin - Intermountain Opera 2019

"Stephanie Sanchez (who plays the little sister) is billed as a mezzo soprano but her voice is much richer and full bodied in my estimation.  It was my impression that the sound her voices makes is what every viola player in the world wishes that alto instrument could make."

The Grapevine Bozeman

Roggiero / Tancredi - Teatro Nuovo 2018

"Cast in supporting roles were three resident artists (i.e., younger emerging singers) with promising voices.  Stephanie Sanchez was Tancredi’s esquire Roggiero who especially impressed with luscious sound and easy technique."

Classical Voice North America

"Another singer who made an impression--with just one aria, no less--was mezzo Sanchez, in Act II's 'Torni alfin ridente, e Bella.'"

Broadway World

"Two other full-voiced mezzo-sopranos filled out the cast in minor roles.  Stephanie Sanchez as Roggiero had a nice little star turn in her aria, ‘Torni alfin ridente, e bella’, which comes near the end of the opera."

Seen and Heard International

"Mezzo-sopranos Hannah Ludwig and Stephanie Sanchez, both drawn from Crutchfield’s training program, impressed with rich, resonant voices in the supporting cast."

The Classical Review

Paquette / Candide - Arizona Opera 2018

"But those voices — wow!  There wasn't a weak voice on the stage, from the excellent Arizona Opera Chorus to the Marion Roose Pullin Studio Artists in lead roles, including Sanchez."

Arizona Daily Star

"Sanchez was a smooth toned and sexy Paquette."

Opera Today

Berta / Il barbiere di Siviglia - Arizona Opera 2018

"Stephanie Sanchez was a most amusing Berta with commading low tones."

Opera Today

Dryad / Ariadne on Naxos- Opera Theatre of Saint Louis 2016

"Other singers who particularly caught my ear and eye on Tuesday night included mezzo-soprano Stephanie Sanchez."

STL Today

"The effortless, limpid, perfectly matched singing by Elizabeth Sutphen (Naiad), Stephanie Sanchez (Dryad), and Liv Redpath (Echo) would be a worthy trio in any major international company. Their lovely vocalizing and immaculate balance as fluid phrases tumbled over each other was simply ravishing."

Opera Today

Young Texas Artist Music Competition 2016

"Mezzo soprano, Stephanie Sanchez, would capture that division’s Gold Medal weaving first a theatrical magic spell with coy and easy grace performing Bizet’s haunting and seductive, 'L’amour est un oiseau rebelle,' from Carmen, and then moving on to a playful, animated and tongue twisting performance of Rossini’s 'Cruda sorte!' from L’italiana in Algeri.."
