Tivoli TreloarAlto See Bio
Tivoli Treloar, “a powerful and fluid mezzo-soprano,” has performed roles including Galatea (Acis and Galatea), Cherubino (Le nozze di Figaro), Flora Bervoix (La traviata) and Alisa (Lucia di Lammermoor). Currently, Tivoli is making her professional debut with Long Beach Opera singing the role of The Lover in the world premiere of Kate Soper’s The Romance of the Rose, directed by James Darrah and conducted by Christopher Roundtree. In a glowing review, The Los Angeles Times wrote: “Tivoli Treloar superbly inhabits the stage like a veteran in her extraordinary first professional starring role.” In The New York Times Critic’s Pick: “Radiating a charming mixture of naïveté and intelligence, Tivoli Treloar has a light mezzo-soprano flexible enough to convey all the Lover’s changes of perspective.” Tivoli’s performance was further praised in Random Lengths News, “As The Lover, Treloar’s seemingly effortless command of every note, regardless of how she’s called upon to act or move during the utterance, is just: wow.”
In December 2022, Tivoli was a featured soloist and chorister with GRAMMY®-nominated Seraphic Fire in their annual tour, A Seraphic Fire Christmas. Her work was admired in the South Florida Classical Review: “The straightforward, intimate expression of Tivoli Treloar’s rendering of John Jacob Niles’ ‘I Wonder as I Wonder’ carried its own eloquence.”

Tivoli enjoys interpreting new music, and she has performed several contemporary works composed by UCLA faculty and students.
