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.

Rave reviews for Opera Omaha's Cosi fan tutte

Alexander made his house and role debuts with Opera Omaha for a new production of Mozart's Cosi fan tutte. The Omaha World-Herald applauded the entire cast, particularly the Guglielmo of Alexander Elliott and the Ferrando of Jonathan Boyd: "Boyd and Elliott made for a riotous duo yet complemented their own comic expertise with tremendously beautiful singing. The range and rapid change from mockery to tenderness required of the characters Ferrando and Guglielmo is a highlight of 'Cosí.' Their voices and wit fit the bill brilliantly."

Alexander brings "raw passion" to the Merola Grand Finale concert

Concluding his first summer with San Francisco Opera's Merola Young Artist Program, Alexander performed on the Merola Grand Finale Concert on the stage of the War Memorial Opera House on August 16th.

Of the performance, the San Francisco Classical Music Examiner writes, "On the more serious side the most effective scene was 'Decidi il mio destin', the love duet between Nedda (Maria Fasciano) and Silvio (Alexander Elliott) in the first act of Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci. Those who saw the Schwabacher Summer Concert may recall the sparks set off by Fasciano and Elliott in their flesh-and-blood account of the scene from Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly in which Cio-Cio San scorns the suit of Prince Yamadori. Last night they converted that scene of rejection into one of the uninhibited raw passion of a forbidden encounter, once again bringing lightning bolts to their performance."

REVIEW - Tulsa Opera, Le nozze di Figaro
”You never doubt that this is a fellow used to getting everything he wants. The character’s aggressive nature is evident in everything from Elliott’s posture to the commanding way he sings the Count’s declaration of vengeance, ‘Vedrò, mentr’io sospiro.’”
— James D Watts, Tulsa World (Oct. 2013)
