Hansel and Gretel

"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."

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.

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

"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."

"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."

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."

"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

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.
