Master Class with Alexandra LoBianco
American soprano Alexandra LoBianco, whom the Seattle Times exclaimed, “gave an impassioned performance” as the title role in Aida at Seattle Opera, has established herself as a dramatic soprano of unequaled versatility, musicality, and consistency. An international presence, Ms. LoBianco recently stepped in for an ailing colleague as Leonore in Fidelio for her debut with the Wiener Staatsoper while under contract for the title role in Turandot. Subsequent appearances with the Wiener Staatsoper have included performances as Helmwige in Die Walküre, as well as the cover of Brünnhilde, while on tour in Japan.
In the 2021-2022 season, Ms. LoBianco will debut the role of Brünnhilde in a concertante performance with Seattle Opera, joined by colleagues Angela Meade, Eric Owens, and Brandon Jovanovich. She will also make her debut with Portland Opera as the title role in Tosca, return to North Carolina Opera to reprise Leonore, perform the title role in Turandot with Maryland Lyric Opera, and sing the Overseer and Confidante in Elektra at the Metropolitan Opera. Last season, Ms. LoBianco joined Seattle Opera for two filmed productions, first as Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana and then as the title role in Tosca.
