Angelina in  La Cenerentola

Angelina in La Cenerentola

 Opera NEO - La Cenerentola

“In Stephanie Doche, Artistic Director Peter Kozma found an admirable Cinderella. Her beautifully modulated mezzo-soprano with its surprisingly brilliant top adapted to every requirement, from the doleful simplicity of Rossini’s imitation folk song “Una volta, c’era un re”…to the glorious pyrotechnics of her stunning victory aria, “Nacqui all’affanno e al pianto.”

-San Diego Story, 8.3.19

Opera Memphis - The Falling and the Rising

“Mezzo-soprano Stephanie Doche is explosively eloquent as Toledo, the tough-as-nails “grown-ass woman” who reveals her past to the Army psychiatrist.”

Memphis Flyer, 4.11.19

Opera NEO - Idomeneo

“In her boldly convincing trouser role, mezzo-soprano Stephanie Doche’s Idamante communicated the prince’s love for Ilia as well as his loyalty to his father with fervent, commanding vocal prowess.”

“Her Carmen flashed dramatic hauteur, and her darkly shaded voice exuded allure.”

Opera NEO Concert - Love is in the Air!

“Mezzo-soprano Stephanie Doche lit the fire with her bold, smoldering “Habanera” from Bizet’s Carmen, and I was ready to call 911 when tenor Dane Suarez as Don José reacted with equal zeal to Doche’s impassioned, seductive “Seguidilla” from the same act of Carmen.” 

“…Doche sang “Non piu mesta” with triumphant grandeur, unleashing cascades of thrilling fioritura, a clear indication that in this title role, Doche will prove an excellent choice for Rossini’s bel canto Cinderella.”

“…mezzo Stephanie Doche (Dorabella) started strong and ended in triumph, with stops at honeyed duets and high-powered arias along the way.”
