Sydney Eisteddfod alumni soprano Stacey Alleaume has become a recognisable and much loved name in the Opera world in recent years. After winning the Sydney Eisteddfod Opera Scholarship in 2012 and the Herald Sun Aria in 2013, she undertook intensive studies abroad in the United States and Italy
In 2015, Stacey was a vocal fellow and recipient of the Irene Cummings and Theodore Hostetler Full Scholarship at the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, and 2016 poised on the brink of a successful career Stacey joined Opera Australia.
Opera Australia has now officially announced their 2018 season and for Stacey it will prove to be an exiting and incredibly busy period.
First she will be performing the role of Valencienne in Lehár’s The Merry Widow in a very special New Years Eve performance. She will continue this role from January 2 to February 3 and shortly after will begin performing the role of Micaëla in Bizet’s Carmen for the rest of the month.
March will see her take on the title role of Violetta Valéry in Verdi’s La Traviata for two performances on the 3rd and 22nd. Excitingly, Stacey will conclude her season performing the role debut of Fiorilla in Rossini’s The Turk in Italy, which will run from 10 August to 1 September.
Last year, Stacey made her own mark in the history of Australian opera by creating the role of Alexandra in The Eighth Wonder, a work created to celebrate the 50th anniversary Sydney Opera House. She has has also performed extensively with Opera Australia’s Regional Touring Company.
Sydney Eisteddfod wishes Stacey the best of luck with this upcoming season and is so proud of everything she has achieved over the years.
