Talise Trevigne

Soprano

American soprano Talise Trevigne begins the 2019-20 Season in a 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 makes 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 joins the Metropolitan Opera cast of Porgy & Bess and later in the season returns to the role of Mimi La Boheme at Fort Worth Opera.

The title role is grandly embodied in the Basel production by the American soprano Talise Trevigne. In no way does it resemble the inexperienced girl sung in the opera. She appears as a fun-loving, self-confident woman who believes in the honesty of feelings – with fatal consequences…The focus is on Talise Trevigne as Butterfly, who in the second part provides a wealth of vocal highlights with her nuance-rich voice.

Martina Wohlthat, Neue Zurcher Zeitung, 31 March 2019

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.
