I would like to acknowledge the traditional territory of the W̱SÁNEĆ and Lekwungen peoples, now known as the Saanich and Songhees nations, on whose traditional lands I live, learn, and work in Victoria, BC. 

Canadian soprano Chelsea Kutyn’s dauntless curiosity and quest for knowledge let her bring a charismatic stage presence to every performance, whether she is portraying the role of food obsessed "Suor Dolcina" in Suor Angelica (Pacific Opera Victoria), or crawling on all fours as “Lapak” the dog in The Cunning Little Vixen (Opera NUOVA).


Currently, Chelsea is one of four artists in Pacific Opera Victoria’s “Apprentice Civic Engagement Quartet,” an artist-led mentorship program aimed at creating authentic story-telling and community engagement through workshops and work with digital mediums.  She is also working towards a Master of Music degree in Voice Performance at the University of Manitoba, under the tutelage of master technician, Monica Huisman.

Following the advice of Butterfield who said, “Don’t bore me!” Chelsea plans to use the skills from her two Bachelor degrees in business and music, to build her own company that will create and promote new small-scale productions in digital and in-person formats. Her vision is to expand opera’s digital presence and introduce a wider and more diverse audience to the world of opera.

Recently, I received an overwhelming amount of press coverage surrounding my recovery from a suspected case of COVID-19 in early March where I spent 29 days in isolation and had so much difficulty breathing I could barely speak.  Despite this difficult end to my degree I still managed to graduate top of the class!
