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)
