Dead Man Walking

Boston Opera Collaborative,

March 2013


"On Saturday, Stephanie Scarcella took the role of Helen.

Although young for the part, she sang with a pure tone

and brought a spunky irreverence to the character,

avoiding pious sentimentality.  She gave the needed spiritual

bounce to her numerous reprises of the hymn-like tune that drives the score."


      - Harlow Robinson for The Boston Globe


La Cenerentola

Boston Opera Collaborative,

August 2013


"There are two casts for this production. The one I saw and heard Thursday

matched the orchestra in power and personality. Scarcella’s radiant mezzo

has depth and luster, and she manages to smile even when she’s singing.

It was no surprise to hear Zac Engle’s awkward, earnest Ramiro remark

that “something sweet sparkles in her eyes” the moment Cenerentola

looked at him."

-Jeffrey Gantz for The Boston Globe



"In the title role, mezzo-soprano Stephanie Scarcella sang with

a warmth and luster of tone, as well as speedy and secure coloratura."


-Lee Eisman for The Boston Music Intelligencer
