Talise Trevigne


American soprano and 2016 Grammy Nominee Talise Trevigne began 2020 with her celebrated portrayal in the title role Porgy and Bess at The Atlanta Opera, her new artistic home.  A TAO Company Principal Artist in Season 2020-21, Miss Trevigne sings Nedda I Pagliacci alongside a selection of specialized concerts and recitals for the company; she joins Donald Runnicles for an Atlanta recital of the works of Mahler, and makes her  Cincinnati Symphony recital debut in a specially devised programme of French repertoire with Louis Langree before joining Boston Lyric Opera for an exciting new episodic opera series devised for the small screen, curated and directed by James Darrah.  Last season’s highlights include her return appearance with CBSO for Tippett’s A Child of our Time in performances in the UK and Germany conducted by Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla. Returning to the US she made her Lyric Opera of Chicago debut as Kitty Hart (Sister Rose (c)) Dead Man Walking before traveling to Albany Symphony to sing Knoxville: Summer of 1915. She joined the Metropolitan Opera cast of Porgy & Bess to cover the title role.  Future engagements include the title role La Traviata at Calgary Opera next season.

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.

As the ingénue everyone’s in love with, Talise Trevigne lifts Nedda’s plea for freedom, “Stridono lassù,” to the rafters with sparkling coloratura flair.
