ABOUT

Chelsea Kutyn- Headshot 2022 FULL .jpg

Emerging Canadian soprano, Chelsea Kutyn, is excited to make two company debuts this season, first with Manitoba Opera in their Digital Emerging Artist Program, followed by her first appearance with the Regina Symphony Orchestra and her Messiah debut.

 

Doing her best to follow the advice of mentor Ben Butterfield who said, “Don’t bore me!” Recently, Kutyn was a featured soloist with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra (WSO), and debuted two roles;  "Susannah" from Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro with Manitoba Underground Opera, and "Magda Sorel" in Menotti's The Consul with Opera NUOVA. 

 
“Kutyn was magnificent…capturing the full range of Magda’s anger, exasperation and ultimate despair chillingly…her depth of characterization and technical command owned the room”
(Opera Canada).

 

 To add to the excitement, this year Chelsea completed her M.Mus with Monica Huisman, got married, and started a production company! Revive Productions, will focus on small scale forgotten works and new work. Stay tuned!

“PRESENTED WITH A PROFESSIONAL FLAIR”
July 12, 2022

"Chelsea Kutyn, was magnificent. She epitomized the notion of passionate commitment to a role to horrifying effect, along the way singing her couple of arias with riveting engagement, capturing the full range of Magda’s anger, exasperation and ultimate despair chillingly. She has the power to fill a 2,000 soft-seat auditorium, and in this venue, her depth of characterization and technical command owned the room."

EDMONTON SCENE

MENOTTI'S THE CONSUL REVIEW

"OPERA NUOVA'S THE CONSUL IS A FASCINATING EVENING, ALBEIT A HARROWING AND A TIMELY ONE"

July 1, 2022

"The main role of Magda is a considerable one, for a big dramatic soprano voice. Chelsea Kutyn has just such a voice, powerful and emotive, and at the same time she was prepared to go beyond that in some of the parlando passages. Magda is the emotive key to the whole opera (and the most developed character), and Kutyn ensured that the audience were left emotionally drained in the final apotheosis."

- Mark Morris

MOZART'S THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO REVIEW

"A QUEER-FRIENDLY FIGARO OUT OF MANITOBA UNDERGROUND OPERA"

September 9, 2022

"As Susanna, Chelsea Kutyn’s voice sparkled with warmth and sincerity. Kutyn was quick, clever, and heartfelt—a magnetic artist to watch. "
