Current season engagements for American soprano Talise Trevigne include a European tour with Munich Philharmonic in Mahler’s Second Symphony with Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, her debut as Countess Le Nozze di Figaro in her return to Calgary Opera, and further performances of La Traviata at Opera de Montreal.
Recent highlights include the role of Violetta La Traviata in highly acclaimed performances at Calgary Opera, the first since her Royal Philharmonic Award win for Best Newcomer in Graham Vick’s production at Birmingham Opera in 2007. She sang Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony under the baton of Leonard Slatkin with Rhode Island Philharmonic before joining Cincinnati Opera for Mimi La Boheme and the role of Patience in their world premiere, Castor and Patience, voted by the New York Times Best Opera of 2022. With Nathalie Stutzmann in her inaugural performances as Music Director at Atlanta Symphony Orchestra she sang Ah! Perfido and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.
The title role is grandly embodied in the Basel production by the American soprano Talise Trevigne…The focus is on Talise Trevigne as Butterfly, who in the second part provides a wealth of vocal highlights with her nuance-rich voice.
