Attended the same freshman class at Northwestern with her son Nick Surovy and had listened to her recordings and seen her perform twice. So sorry for your loss, Nick. 40 years or so later was the late Jerome Hines television producer and was introduced to Rise Stevens at Jerry's home. Spent a long, great afternoon together talking inside-opera but also largely hearing how proud she was of her son. We should be grateful her talent could be with us for so long. God bless her forever!

Memorable. Rise Stevens was deeply memorable in so many ways. As Carmen, as a bright and gifted artist, as an actress and as a beautiful person. Her light will always burn bright, here and in the angel choir.

I fell in love with opera because of Rise Stevens. As a young teenager, I heard her on 'Voice of Firestone.' She sang the Habanera from 'Carmen.' I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Thank you Ms. Stevens for opening the world of opera to me and all the joys I've experienced there. You will never be forgotten.

A beautiful lady! I remember chatting with Ms. Stevens while working at the NYS Council on the Arts. Ms. Stevens was a Music Panel Member. Always gracious, lovely and friendly. My profound sympathy to the family.
