Aleksandra Romano Biography
Mezzo-soprano Aleks Romano has been hailed as representing “the best of the new operatic training and integrated performance.” Consistently praised for her integrity of character and lush vocal presence, Ms. Romano was awarded First Prize in the 2016 Gerda Lissner Foundation Competition. She was a 2015 Sullivan Foundation Career Development Award winner and second place winner in the Southeast Region of the 2015-2016 Metropolitan National Council Auditions.

In addition to her appearances with OperaDelaware, Ms. Romano’s 2016-2017 season features a company debut with Portland Opera as Isabella in L’italiana in Algeri, a return to Washington National Opera as Cherubino in Le nozze di Figaro, and another company debut with Opera Parallèle singing the Stewardess in Jonathan Dove’s Flight. She also joins the roster of the Lyric Opera of Chicago to cover the role of Dulcinée in Don Quichotte. On the concert stage she appears with the Kansas City Symphony for performances of the Mozart Requiem, and the Jacksonville Symphony, for Handel’s Messiah. Future seasons include a company debut with Austin Opera, and a return to the Glimmerglass Festival.

A Mid-Atlantic Regional Finalist and Encouragement Award Winner in the 2014 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, Ms. Romano was also awarded the prestigious Phyllis Curtin Career Entry Prize from Yale School of Music. In summer 2014, Aleksandra covered Kate Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly and Sondra Finchley in An American Tragedy at The Glimmerglass Festival. Ms. Romano is also an alumna of the Wolf Trap Studio (2011, 2012).

A huge proponent of art song and concert repertoire, Ms. Romano has been seen in solo recital at Yale University and Bard College, and presented a joint recital at the National Opera Center with other Domingo-Cafritz young artists in the spring of 2015. Previous concert appearances include the Yale Philharmonia (Woolsey Concerto Competition Winner, 2014), Voices of Cooperstown, the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra, and the American Symphony Orchestra. She has received additional prizes from Opera Theater CT (First Place, Amici Vocal Competition, 2014), Yale University (Lotte Lenya Scholarship, 2013), the Bard College Concerto Competition (2009, 2010), the Classical Singer University Competition (national semifinalist, 2010), and the Presser Foundation (2009).
