Praised as “explosively eloquent,” (Memphis Flyer) and beholding “fervent, commanding vocal prowess,” (San Diego Story), French-American mezzo-soprano Stephanie Doche (rhymes with posh) is highly coveted for her “richly colored mezzo,” (South Florida Classical Review). Stephanie joins the Florida Grand Opera FGO Studio for their 2020/2021 season appearing as Dinah in Trouble in Tahiti, Pamela/Mama in Daron Hagen’s New York Stories, and Rosine in Thomas Pasatieri’s Signor Deluso. Her anticipated role debuts of both Flora Bervoix in La traviata and Siébel in Faust with FGO were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Critically acclaimed for her fioratura singing, Stephanie presented her “triumphant” portrayal as Angelina in La Cenerentola with both Opéra Louisiane and Opera NEO in 2019. During the 2018/2019 season she was a Handorf Company Artist with Opera Memphis, successfully performing the wide-ranging roles of Suzuki in Madama Butterfly, Cousin Hebe in H.M.S. Pinafore, and Toledo in The Falling & the Rising (professional premiere). In 2021 Stephanie is slated to appear as the title roles in both La Cenerentola and Carmen with Pacific Opera Project and Mobile Opera, respectively. She also returns to Opera Memphis to perform Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Scalia/Ginsburg by Derrick Wang.
