On Friday 7 July, Talise Trevigne takes to the stage at The Glimmerglass Festival in her debut role as Bess in this Gershwin masterpiece directed by Francesca Zambello.
Talise has received wonderful reviews this season for performances in The Pearl Fishers at North Carolina Opera and in It's a Wonderful Life at Houston Grand Opera.
The Pearl Fishers, North Carolina Opera
'Regular NCO audiences will remember Talise Trevigne and her brilliant portrayal of Cio-Cio-San in 2015. The power of her voice is tempered by a pure and shimmering quality, and her upper register is especially crystalline and bright. She was a beautifully compelling Leila.'
Classical Voice of North Carolina, Ken Hoover
It's a Wonderful Life, Houston Grand Opera
'Soprano Talise Trevigne, who played the cabin boy Pip in the original cast of Heggie’s Moby-Dick, brought to the role a warm, soaring voice that fit right in with classic notions of what an angel should sound like.'
Texas Classical Review, Steven Brown, 4 December
'The production stars a sublime Talise Trevigne as Clara, a peppier version of Clarence, the second-class angel hoping to earn his wings by saving the suicidal George Bailey.'
Houston Chronicle, Wei-Huan Chen, 4 December
