German-American soprano Stephanie Lorenz has been lauded as ‘an astonishing Donna Anna’ in her 2022 debut of the role at the Apollon Theater in Syros, Greece. Her velvety timbre, versatility and authenticity make her well-suited to the interpretation of Mozart’s heroines. Upcoming engagements include the role of Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni in June 2023 with Teatro Grattacielo at The Riverside Theater in New York City and a concert tour throughout southwest Florida, titled ‘Dazzling Divas: Night at the Cabaretta’, a dynamic diva duo musical comedy show with Soprano Angela Maria Blasi.
In September 2022, Stephanie performed Donna Anna at the Rodos International Music Festival with the Athens Philharmonic, conducted by Maestro Alkis Baltas. She was also featured in the Maria Callas Gala and gave a solo concert in Berlin, Germany. She made her debut as Mimì in Puccini’s La Bohème and covered Musetta at the Mediterranean Opera Festival, where she also covered the role of Gilda from Verdi’s Rigoletto.
In April 2022, Stephanie sang in the World Premiere of the Songful Cycle by Dr. William Dawson, Jr., with the Sarasota Chamber Orchestra and made her title role debut as Ruth in the premiere of Dawson’s operetta, Song of the Immigrant: The Story of Ruth. She recently toured with the Gulfshore Opera Divas in the ‘Songs of Ireland Concert’ (2022/2023). In 2021, she sang the role of Suzel in Mascagni’s L’Amico Fritz with the Queens Symphony in New York City and covered the role of Adele in Johann Strauss’ Die Fledermaus with Gulfshore Opera in Florida.
Stephanie serves on the Board of Directors for the Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers and recently served as Stage Manager for Opera Naples’ Festival Under the Stars: Carmen & Frida. She earned a degree in Opera Music Performance from Stetson University and continues her vocal training with Soprano Jennifer Rowley and her mentor Maestra Capucine Chiaudani, (Italian Soprano and Professor of Voice at the Kalaidos University in Zurich).
