Biography

This summer, Alexandra reprises her role as Dinah in the Staatsoper Stuttgart’s production of Trouble in Tahiti. In the 21/22 Season, she can be seen performing Dritte Dame (Die Zauberflöte), Ozias (Juditha Triumphans), Fjodor/Die Aktivistin (BORIS), Bradamante (Alcina), and Küchenjunge (Rusalka). She will also cover Suzuki in Madama Butterfly.

In the Staatsoper Stuttgart’s 20/21 season, Alexandra was seen performing Dritte Dame (Die Zauberflöte) and Emmeline in a film adaptation of Purcell’s Artus. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Alexandra’s debuts as L’enfant (Das Kind) in a German translation of Maurice Ravel’s L'enfant et les sortilèges (Die verzauberte Welt) and as the Alt Soloist in a staged adaptation of Bach’s Johannespassion have been postponed.

In the Staatsoper Stuttgart’s 19/20 Season, Urquiola performed the roles of Dinah (Trouble in Tahiti), Annina (La Traviata), Linetta (Die Liebe zu drei Orangen), and Fjodor/Die Aktivistin (BORIS/Secondhand Zeit). Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Alexandra was unable to make her debuts singing Marta/Pantalis (Mefistofele) and Maddalena (Rigoletto).

In 2019, Alexandra joined Steven Blier to premiere the song cycle ELEMENTOS by Clarice Assad in the New York Festival of Song. Reviewers said: “Alexandra Urquiola’s liquid mezzo and striking performance of “Water—Maré de Água Viva (A Tide of Living Water)” fell at the sublime confluence of sorrow and peace.” (I Care if You Listen) Urquiola recently completed her fellowship with the Merola Opera Program at the San Francisco Opera Center. At Merola, she sang Mother Goose in The Rake’s Progress and covered Tamiri in Il re pastore.
As Dinah, Alexandra Urquiola impressed with her multifaceted mezzo-soprano. She has been a member of the Stuttgart Opera Studio since last season and, with this sophisticated interpretation, also set the atmosphere. (Translated from original German)
