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.” 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 and makes her Minnesota Opera debut as Tosca.

Latest Acclaim

"When a brawl erupts and gun goes off, in comes Alexandra LoBianco as Minnie, the tough-loving saloon owner in the title role. She shakes her head, plants a hand on her hip and tells her 'boys' that she'll quit teaching their Bible lessons if they don't knock it off. (Only in opera, folks.)

"In her company debut, the Chicago soprano is everything you could want in a Puccini heroine: gutsy, tender, hot-blooded and equipped with a set of pipes that could blast a new mine shaft into the Sierra Nevadas."
