Stephanie Blythe in Concert
Johnny Mercer: America's Lyricist
Vocal Powerhouse Welcomes Us Back Into The Theatre
Opening the 2021-2022 season with a special concert mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe will draw from her vast repertoire of opera and Broadway to present a concert of arias and art songs, as well as a few surprises. Accompanied on the piano, Ms Blythe will be sure to give us an evening we will not soon forget.
Stephanie Blythe made her Company debut in 2014’s A Masked Ball as Ulrica, sang in the Company’s Verdi Requiem that same year, and returned in recital later that fall for We’ll Meet Again: The Songs of Kate Smith. She was scheduled to sing the title role of Gianni Schicchi last season, the first time the lead role was to be sung by a mezzo-soprano, but that production has now been postponed to the 2022-2023 season.
"Mercer’s extraordinary abilities as a wordsmith and performer cannot be underestimated, as the songs and stories will tell you. Mercer was a born communicator, who had an innate understanding of how to connect with his audience- a perfect subject for a recital/cabaret, my absolute favorite kind of performance, one that establishes an easy, person to person connection with the audience through shared emotional experiences." - Stephanie Blythe
