Soprano
About

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 Chatelet in Paris, to name a few. Her "superlative coloratura" (Globe and Mail), "deliciously accurate, stratospheric" (Opera), is regularly singled out by critics. "Her extreme high notes, and she threw in a lot of them, are easy and spectacular." (Boston Globe). She has "a voice filled with sunshine, rainbows and laser light" according to Opera Magazine and the San Francisco Chronicle finds her "bright, sparkling, and bouncing, accurate and winning." "Where pure, well-tuned, characterful, and seemingly easy acrobatics through two and a half octaves are required, Dahl is among a relative few who can do it all superlatively well," comments the Calgary Herald. In 2009 she was awarded the prestigious Opera Canada Award.

"Dahl gets the big show-stopper number, Glitter and be Gay, which she previously recorded with The Calgary Philharmonic and Mario Bernardi. While Dahl is now a trifle mature to play Cunegonde, she is nevertheless vocally perfect for the part, and despite a slight hardness to the voice, she still has all the notes needed to deliver the virtuoso vocal writing. Her delivery of Glitter and be Gay is still the gold standard in this famous piece. Her bubbly stage presence is, of course, perfect for the less-than-virtuous Cunegonde."
