Stephanie Chigas

Possessing a thrilling versatility that is equally at home on opera, concert and recital stages, Greek-American mezzo soprano Stephanie Chigas’ voice has been hailed as “…rich and full of the promise of things to come.” Ms. Chigas has performed with great success such roles as Carmen LA TRAGÉDIE DE CARMEN, Lucretia THE RAPE OF LUCRETIA, the title role in Bizet’s CARMEN, Nicklausse LES CONTES D’HOFFMANN, Dorabella COSÌ FAN TUTTE and Hansel HANSEL UND GRETEL. For her performances as Carmen, Joseph McLellen of the Washington Post wrote, “Top honors on opening night went to Stephanie Chigas, who had the best voice and explored Carmen’s earthy, almost animal sensuality with a power beyond any prima donna I have seen in the role.”  Recent engagements have included covering the role of Carmen for Boston Lyric Opera as well as singing the role of Mercedes in the same production, Second Maid in Strauss’ ELEKTRA with the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Maestro Lorin Maazel, Octavian DER ROSENKAVALIER with Sinfonia da Camera, and Carmen LA TRAGÉDIE DE CARMEN as part of the InCite Festival at NYC’s New World Stages.  Ms. Chigas also was featured in an Opera Gala performance in Barbados with the Holder’s Season.
