“..the performance of Senta… was astounding. Stephanie DeCiantis’ powerful voice almost lifted the roof off the sanctuary..."

About Stephanie

Stephanie DeCiantis, hailed as a '…top Canadian voice'...

... by Opera Canada, has been making waves with her captivating presence and warm sound. Critics have lauded her "powerful" resonance (Jake Evans, the Intelligencer) and the entrancing "lush musical ebb and flow" she brings to the stage (Opera Canada). Her recent performances include at the Meermusik festival in Dusseldorf, Germany, with a concert of well-loved arias and duets, as the Overseer in Powerhouse Opera's electrifying Elektra in Toronto, and as the radiant Soprano Soloist in Shostakovich's Symphony No. 14, enthralling listeners alongside the Kindred Spirits Orchestra. Stephanie's versatility shines as she took on the formidable role of Leonora in Opera Sustenda's spellbinding rendition of Verdi's Il trovatore live in theatres and on the big screen with Il trovatore: The Movie.

“DeCiantis showcased her clear and precise tonality… exhibiting a beautifully-contrasted darker timbre for her more dramatic scenes. …DeCiantis sang with the lush musical ebb and flow that Leoncavallo’s score demands.”
