About Megan

Culture Map raves, "In the title role [of Princess Ida] is soprano Megan Stapleton, an artist of clarity, power, and much expressivity. She is also a gifted actor, playing the role with a studied intensity. She is, after all, playing the head of a women's university where no men are permitted. She has to be imposing for the 100 young women who follow her lead. I found her glamorous presence on stage mesmerizing, her voice melodious when it had to blend with others in an ensemble, but always extraordinary in solo passages. She has star quality, and I look forward to hearing her again in Houston or elsewhere."

BroadwayWorld.com states, "Megan Stapleton... has a crystalline, ethereal voice. She sings purely and seemingly effortlessly, even when delivering high notes that seem pulled from another realm. Her voice is never shrill, always confident and pure. And she's funny, too. Stapleton has a lyrical physicality; she is adept at using posturing and body language to make the most of the comedic moments."

Soprano and Texas native Megan Stapleton has been described as “sublime" (The Hub Review) with “stunning lyricism" (The Boston Musical Intelligencer) and "star quality" (Culture Map).

Megan has performed with Houston Grand Opera, Ars Lyrica, Lumedia Musicworks, Kingwood Pops, Galveston Symphony Orchestra, Mercury - The Orchestra Redefined, HGO's Opera To Go!, Houston Baroque, Ensemble Correnti, Houston’s Bach Society, Houston’s Gilbert and Sullivan Society, and the Paul English Jazz Trio. While living in Boston, she sang with Boston Early Music Festival, Boston Opera Collaborative and Boston Metro Opera.
