MUSETTA, La Bohème with Mercury Opera
"The big showpiece of Act II is Musetta’s Waltz, sung with take-no-prisoners gusto by soprano Stacy Dove."
"Edward Cleary is muscular and headstrong as Marcello and is evenly matched in talent and stage presence with Dove as the fiery Musetta. The heartfelt delivery of her big anthem of independence [Quando m'en vo] is charming, more than a bit playful, and a high point of the evening."
-Gig City, Colin MacLean
"Stacy Dove’s Musetta made a showy, yet seamless entrance as she grabbed the Bohemians’ attention, then took her place at one of the tables in the audience with Alcindoro. Her rendition of Quando m’en vo saw her, fittingly, take center stage as she matched her sensual gestures with a similar lyricism."
-OperaWire, Logan Martell
"In the second act, Stacy Dove ... must have somehow gathered everyone in the theatre’s energy to powerfully sing of independence in [Quando m'en vo]."
-Edmonton Journal, Nick Lees
VALENCIENNE, The Merry Widow with Florentine Opera
"Soprano Stacy Dove makes a memorable Florentine debut as Baron Zeta's young wife, embroiled in an intrigue of her own. Her musical and theatrical expressiveness must make everyone hope she'll be back."
-Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Jim Higgins
Interview with Marguerite Helmers of Urban Milwaukee
ANNE TRUELOVE, The Rake's Progress with Opera Company of Brooklyn
"Stacy Dove sang Anne Truelove with a plush, dark soprano, elegant ornaments and a glide to a golden top C at the end of “I go to him” that was a model of bel canto grace."
--Parterre Box, John Yohalem
THE BEGGAR WOMAN, Sweeney Todd with Opera Roanoke
"Stacy Dove captures the humor and mystery of the Beggar Woman..."
--The Roanoke Times, Gordon Marsh
LA CHATTE, L'enfant et les Sortilèges with UNCG Opera Theatre
"The romancing of baritone Paolo Pacheco as the Black Cat and soprano Stacy Dove as the sultry White Cat was R-rated. Their palette of the possible ways to deliver "meow" was extraordinary!"
--Classical Voice of NC, William Thomas Walker
