Stephanie Blythe To Debut New Cabaret Show ‘The Tender Trap’

World-renowned opera singer and recitalist Stephanie Blythe will premiere her new cabaret act, “The Tender Trap,” as a special benefit for The Mabel Mercer Foundation on June 14, 2018 at Feinstein’s / 54 Below.

The acclaimed Mezzo will celebrate “love, obsession, and the stuff in between,” in a repertoire selected from the Great Popular Songbook of the 1910s, 1920s, and 1930s, considered a golden age for the melodies and lyrics of Tin Pan Alley, Broadway, and, eventually, Hollywood.

Craig Terry will serve as music director of the show. It will be a one-night event available only through The Mabel Mercer Foundation with a post-concert meeting with Blythe.

In a press statement, Blythe noted, “I grew up in a jazz household, not a classical household. There’s such a wide range of emotions and topics in the 1910-1950s catalog; all of those songs operate on so many levels – and they reflect so many personal moments. As a result, this material has so often taken on a life of its own.”

Blythe is currently at the Met rehearsing the premiere of “Cendrillon,” which is set to open on April 12.
