American soprano Alexandra LoBianco, whom the Seattle Times exclaimed, “gave a subtle but 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. In the 2019/2020 season, Ms. LoBianco will make her house and role debut as Marianne Leitmetzerin in Der Rosenkavalier at the Metropolitan Opera. She will also return to the Santa Fe Opera, performing the Foreign Princess in Rusalka, a role she will join Canadian Opera Company for, and understudy the title role in Tristan und Isolde. She will also join the Lyric Opera of Chicago for Wagner’s Ring Cycle, performing Helmwige and understudying Brünnhilde; she will also return to North Carolina Opera to sing Brünnhilde in Siegfried and debut with Palm Beach Opera as Turandot.
