Tracy Dahl soprano

With her 2006 debut at La Scala as Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos, Canada’s premier coloratura soprano Tracy Dahl has taken another milestone in a career that has brought her together with such opera houses as the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Santa Fe Opera, Canadian Opera Company, and the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, to name a few. During the 2013-14 season she returns to the Canadian Opera Company as Despina in Così fan Tutte, Calgary Opera as Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance, and to the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra for Carmina Burana.

Her recent operatic engagements include Gilda in Rigoletto with Edmonton Opera and Manitoba Opera; her role debut in the title role in Maria Stuarda with Pacific Opera Victoria; the world premieres of Unsuk Chin’s Alice in Wonderland and Peter Ash’s The Golden Ticket with Opera Theatre of St. Louis; and Madame Mao in Nixon in China with Opera Colorado, Portland Opera, and Vancouver Opera. Among her many notable debuts are Adele in Die Fledermaus at the Metropolitan Opera, where she later returned as Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos, Florestine in the world premiere of The Ghosts of Versailles, and Valencienne in The Merry Widow; as well as Olympia in the San Francisco Opera production of Les Contes d’Hoffmann opposite Plácido Domingo, where she returned as Oscar in Un Ballo in Maschera and the title role in Lucia di Lammermoor.

On the concert stage, her recent appearances include performances of Gershwin songs with the Cleveland Orchestra at the Blossom Festival and the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall and the Vail Summer Music Festival; Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 with the Monterey Symphony; Britten’s Les Illuminations with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra; a concert with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra; a New Year’s Eve Gala concert with the Philadelphia Orchestra; Handel’s Messiah with the San Francisco Symphony and the St. Louis Symphony; and an appearance on the Vancouver Symphony Proms with Bramwell Tovey.
