Alexander continues 2017 with two contemporary operas
Following his debut with Opera Omaha in Cosi fan tutte, Alexander continues his season with two contemporary role debuts. In March he returns to the Florida State Opera for Carlisle Floyd's new opera Prince of Players in the lead role of the androgynous Edward Kynaston. Originally commissioned by the Houston Grand Opera, the opera premieres in Tallahassee with performances on March 31 and April 2.
Alexander collaborates with the Dallas Opera and Music Director Emmanuel Villaume for the first time in May, covering the role of Doug Hansen in Joby Talbot's Everest. This true-life tale of an ill-fated expedition to Mt. Everest is inspired by Mountaineer George Mallory's attempts to summit the world's highest peak in the 1920's, and features historical film footage provided by the BFI National Archive.
