Vocalist - Soprano
About

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.” In summer of 2015 she sings the title role in Tosca with PORTopera in Maine, and in 2015-16 she sings the title role in Aida with Opera Colorado.

Latest Acclaim

“Alexandra LoBianco, a dramatic soprano with a ringing voice, brought to her debut in the title role a wide, emotional range plus a voice to match. Her energetic portrayal of the high-strung diva – passionate one moment, petulant the next, easily angered, often animated, was all you could ask for. Cold and aloof as she dispatched Baron Scarpia ... LoBianco later unraveled completely while relating the events to her lover and seeing the look of horror in his eyes at what she’d done. LoBianco’s Act II aria, ‘Vissi d’arte,’ which she began singing while lying on the ground, was a heart-wrenching tour-de-force.”
