'Steph DePrez’s goal is for her audience to leave “opera curious” – a very achievable and lovely sentiment that she definitely accomplishes by the end of her show... Steph’s voice truly shines though in the Wagnerian and Verdi arias that she later sings. This is clearly her strength as an opera singer. Her powerful voice, piercing over the top of the luscious, thickly orchestrated music (this case a backing track) and the full might of her range in flight... it’s in the semi-Masterclass portion of her show that I am truly impressed. She talks about vocal physiology with great knowledge, so much so that I would happily send any of my students to her.'

Turning Wagner up to eleven! A hilarious dive into the ridiculous world of opera and life as a Valkyrie and Rheinmaiden, peppered with hits from Puccini and Verdi. With 22 shows in 25 days, Berlin’s thrilling opera singing comedian kicked off her first solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2023 to wild success.

"The Opera Comedy Show" is half-recital, half-stand-up comedy hour designed to convince ANYONE to give opera a try. 

Steph offers tips on how to tell your parents you're moving to Vienna to be a Valkyrie and reveals what it's like to audition for the biggest opera houses in Europe, alongside tales of navigating German Tinder. She invites you into a discovery of opera as an art form through song and humor, demonstrating how the classical voice works and performing popular hits.

"DePrez is seeking to demystify opera, and strip away the thick crust of elitism and pretension which most people assume surrounds it. The charming, voluble singer performs (beautifully) a selection of famous arias from the likes of Tannhäuser, La bohème, and La forza del destino, while breaking down their context and the emotions being experienced by the character she’s embodying...  DePrez herself is an informative and patient guide. She never assumes any prior knowledge, and even demonstrates some techniques with some willing volunteers. And when she sings, the power and control she uses to be heard over a full orchestra in the concert halls of Berlin really pin back the ears in the basement of a pub in Tollcross."
