Mezzo-soprano Stephanie McGuire has appeared with New York City Opera at Lincoln Center, with the Boston POPS Orchestra in Symphony Hall, and several times at Carnegie Hall. Most recently she created the role of Ada in the world premiere of Alchemy, a one-act melodrama from composer Oliver Graber and librettist Roald Hoffman.
She performs repertoire across the centuries and is often sought out for works of the baroque and contemporary periods. Such performances include Dinah in Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti with Underworld Opera at Symphony Space in New York City, Cirilla/Venere in Cavalli’s Gli Amori d'Apollo e di Dafne in Venice, and the trouser role of Erminio in the New York premiere of A. Scarlatti's Il Trionfo dell'Onore. Also at home in standard repertoire, Stephanie made her Symphony Hall debut performing Bizet and Bernstein arias with the Boston POPS Orchestra under the baton of Keith Lockhart. She has also performed Cornelia in Giulio Cesare for the Metropolitan Opera Guild with conductor-pianist Susan Morton and appeared with New York Lyric Opera as both Bradamante and Ruggiero in Alcina.
Sacred music is Stephanie's first love. She has performed as a soloist in Bernstein's Jeremiah Symphony with the Key West Symphony Orchestra, in Duruflé's Requiem with the historic Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Chamber Choir and Orchestra, and in Beethoven's Mass in C with the Hunter College Concert Choir and Orchestra. Other beloved roles include Bach's St. John Passion, St. Matthew Passion, and B-minor mass.
This season, she looks forward to performing chamber concerts featuring the works of Darius Milhaud and to creating new operatic roles.
