Sopranos Tracy Dahl and Andriana Chuchman with the MCO
Please note there are no door sales for the immediate future — all tickets must be purchased online or over the phone (204-783-7377).
Tracy Dahl and Andriana Chuchman are both internationally renowned sopranos. That Andriana used to be Tracy’s pupil, here in Winnipeg, makes it all the more special when they sing together.
Tracy is, of course, one of Canada’s premier coloratura sopranos; a singer who carries off the agile runs, trills, and leaps of the coloratura repertoire “with sunshine, rainbows and laser light” (Opera Canada). There’s no need to impress the reader by reeling off all the illustrious stages on which she’s performed, but let’s mention a few anyway: Théâtre du Châtelet, the Metropolitan, La Scala, the Hamburg Opera. Her list of accomplished former students (at the University of Manitoba and elsewhere) surely adds to her indelible impact on the Canadian singing community.
One of those former students is Andriana herself, another coloratura soprano who started in Tracy’s studio at the University of Manitoba and quickly became a top student. Today she stars alongside some of the world’s most famous singers on top opera stages. Praised by the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Chicago Tribune for her vocal brilliance, Chuchman cut her teeth learning Ukrainian folk songs with her sister in the Garden City home where they grew up.
We weren’t surprised when Andriana and Tracy sold out the last time they performed an in-person concert with us in 2018. See them perform a range of arias and duets at this concert — and get your tickets while they last.
