I had admired Devon Guthire as Marzelline in Beethoven’s “Fidelio”...Casting her as Rosalinda shows the confidence that the Santa Fe Opera management has in this young soprano early in her career. Rosalinda has been a vehicle for soprano superstars...The fact that Devon Guthrie held her own in a strong cast suggests that a major operatic career lies ahead for her.

Rosalinde - Die Fledermaus

Santa Fe Opera

Devon Guthrie could not wait to even her score with him as she sang honeyed tones and silver-tipped high notes.

Rosalinde - Die Fledermaus

Santa Fe Opera

In the Kentucky Opera’s production, Devon Guthrie as Constanze mesmerized with her precision and sweet tone as she soared into the higher range of a run and dipped down only to ascend again. Furthermore, Guthrie’s singing balanced with the Louisville Orchestra conducted by Joseph Mechavich.

Konstanze - Abduction from the Seraglio

Kentucky Opera

In a cast dominated by men, the soprano Devon Guthrie, as Mary, stood out for her opulent but weightless tone and the grace with which she negotiated the fanciful embellishments Mr. Spears writes into her part.

Mary - Fellow Travelers

Cincinnati Opera

Her rival (and “diva challenger”) Pulcheria was no demurring seconda donna, no.  Devon Guthrie took the stage with consummate professionalism and knocked our socks off with pyrotechnical vocal displays that make the New Year’s Eve fireworks in Sidney Harbor pale in comparison.  And while we were sitting there duly dazzled, Ms. Guthrie changed gears and showed an effortless affinity for comedy and dramatic commitment alike.  Her aggressive flashy soprano reminds me of the colorful Simone Kermes, without the eccentricity.

Pulcheria - Richard the Lionheart

Opera Theatre St. Louis

Isacio's daughter Pulcheria, trapped by her father's irrational lust for women and power, and initially threatened by Costanza's beauty, was robustly enacted by soprano Devon Guthrie. Voluptuously rich in tone and exhibiting a secure, confident coloratura, Guthrie showed Pulcheria's enlightened depth of character with complete conviction.

Pulcheria - Richard the Lionheart

Opera Theatre of St. Louis

In a memorable debut, Devon Guthrie is feisty and passionate as the tempestuous Pulcheria, a pawn in her father’s evildoings, fighting for her life. Although she is not entirely innocent, she made us care about her plight.

Pulcheria - Richard the Lionheart

Opera Theatre of St. Louis

Soprano Devon Guthrie impressed as Rocco’s daughter, Marzelline. Hitting her stride in the Act 1 aria “Die Hoffnung schon erfüllt die Brust,” her pleasantly bright, clearly projected sound backed up with substance.

Marzelline - Fidelio

Santa Fe Opera

The cast has some important strengths. Devon Guthrie’s radiant-voiced Marzelline is immediately appealing: more mature, more thoughtful, than typical portrayals of the jailer’s daughter.

Marzelline - Fidelio

Santa Fe Opera

"Devon Guthrie...hit her stride and then practically blow the roof off the joint in the middle of Act ll."

Daisy - The Great Gatsby


Devon Guthrie, is equally gutsy and determined, reminding us that it's a strong, good woman who redeems the secret brotherhood.

Pamina - The Magic Flute

“Devon Guthrie (Susanna) doesn’t play at being in charge - she is....”

Susanna - The Marriage of Figaro

English National Opera

Huge compliments are due to the management of the ENO for picking Devon Guthrie. I take it that this is another bold inspired choice of John McMurray - totally brilliant. I wish I had done it. That is praise indeed!!! Here is a 23 (year old) student at Juilliard picked out for stardom. She is a major talent and dominated the stage. This is a marathon part and she tossed it off without a hesitation.  Youth has no fear!

Susanna - The Marriage of Figaro

English National Opera

Devon Guthrie's Susanna was a class act, able to transform her mood from sark to spite in a flash. Her voice was a rich delight...
