Vocalist - Soprano

American soprano Alexandra LoBianco has been hailed as possessing “a true Verdian voice of velvet-covered steel,” capable of “effortlessly tossing off trills and roulades” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch). She has been awarded First Prize in the 2013 Altamura International Vocal Competition and was named a First Prize winner of the William Sullivan Foundation 2013 Awards. Since earning first prize at the 2011 Liederkranz Vocal Competition, and taking first prize and being named “Audience Favorite” at the 2011 Irene Dalis Competition, she has continued to win praise whenever she performs. San Francisco Classical Voice noted her “lyrical-to-heroic range,” calling to mind “the ease and magnetism of a young Monserrat Caballe.”

“Led by maestro John DeMain conducting the marvelous Madison Symphony Orchestra, ‘Fidelio’ shone most brightly in the form of its star, soprano Alexandra LoBianco.... LoBianco, last seen as the apex of a doomed love triangle in Madison Opera’s 2012 production of ‘A Masked Ball,’ drives the opera. She’s a magnetic, passionate performer with an extraordinary instrument and impressive control; her tone warms and opens as the opera progresses. Where another heroine might faint or gasp in shock when she’s told that her captive husband will be executed in mere hours, LoBianco’s Leonore — disguised as Fidelio — swallows and asks for more details. ‘Is he dead yet?’ she asks the jailer. ‘No? Let’s go, then.’”
