About this Artist
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 “darkly shaded voice.” Acclaimed for her fioratura singing, Stephanie performed 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 professional premiere of The Falling and the Rising. Other previous operatic highlights include her “bodly convincing” portrayal of the pants role, Idamante, in Idomeneo, as well as Dorabella in Così fan tutte, Hänsel in Hänsel und Gretel, Meg March in Little Women, and Mère Marie in Dialogues des Carmélites. Stephanie has been a featured soloist with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, Riverdale Choral Arts Society, and at Crosstown Arts. In 2021 Stephanie is slated to appear with Opera Company of Middlebury and Finger Lakes Opera, as well as make her role debut as Bizet’s iconic femme fatale, Carmen. She was born in Nice, France and raised in Rochester, NY. For more information about Stephanie, visit www.stephaniedoche.com.
