Described as “astonishing, a gleaming soprano secure from top to bottom and thrilling to hear” (Long Beach Grunion Gazette), Mindi Trimble thrives as a vocal storyteller in a variety of genres including opera, musical theater, and improv comedy.
Upon returning from a UK tour as the soprano soloist in Dvořák's Te Deum, Mindi made her role debuts as Pamina in The Magic Flute and Violetta in La Traviata. A winner of the Los Angeles International Liszt Competition, she also began exploring musical theater, including a world premiere original musical on Theatre Row Off-Broadway (Columbia: The Life and Death of Rospo D. Oro), the Stage Raw 2015 Best Musical (Sweeney Todd), and the award-winning The Christians at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.
After singing Rapunzel in Into the Woods in 2015, she continued to develop her operatic repertoire in regional opera as Norina in Don Pasquale, Juliette in Romeo et Juliette, the title role in Suor Angelica, Micaëla in Carmen, and Antonia in The Tales of Hoffmann. Mindi also returned to Pacific Opera Project—where she first appeared as an alien slave girl in its Star Trek-inspired Abduction from the Seraglio—as both a cartwheeling grisette in The Merry Widow and Berta the “personal assistant” in a modern, Hollywood-themed Barber of Seville.
Particularly drawn to unusual performances, Mindi has come up spinning from below the stage as part of an eight-woman Greek chorus in Long Beach Opera’s Ainadamar, performed as both a flash mob and anime convention soloist with Nova Vocal Ensemble, and serenaded diners in the middle of the New York Times’ critically-acclaimed MonkeyTown video installation cube in Los Angeles. As "co-managing diva" of LA’s local chapter of Opera on Tap, she’s helped further the company’s mission of promoting opera as a “viable, living, and progressive art form” to new audiences in bars, restaurants, and outdoor festivals all over Southern California since 2011.
Most recently, Mindi has returned to the stage as an improv performer at ComedySportz Los Angeles.
