Tracy Dahl and Andriana Chuchman — Duets and Arias

March 21, 2018. Sopranos Tracy Dahl and Andriana Chuchman have a special relationship with Winnipeg. They're both high-flying, international opera singers with roots in Peg City. They have another unique connection — Andriana is Tracy's former pupil. 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. Even if Dahl hadn't been given a place on the Women's Executive Network's 2014 "Canada's Most Powerful Women" list, her list of accomplished former students (at the University of Manitoba and elsewhere) would surely testify to her indelible impact on the Canadian singing community. One of those former students is Andriana herself, who just ten years ago was a star voice student at the U of M. Today she stars alongside the likes of Placido Domingo on the world's top opera stages. Praised by the New York Times 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.Tickets available at, the MCO's Ticketline 204-783-7377 and at Organic Planet, McNally Robinson, and the West End Cultural Centre..
