Biography

Baritone Alexander York, from Wisconsin, begins his third season in the Académie of the Opéra national de Paris, where he has been seen in Don Carlo as a Flemish Deputy, in L'Enfant et les Sortilèges as the Horloge comtoise and Le chat, and as Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus 

York recently made his Bayerische Staatsoper debut in Viktor Ullmann's Der zerbrochene Krug. In 2017, he sang the role of James Ramsey in the world premiere of Zesses Seglias' To the Lighthouse at the Bregenz Festival.

Upon moving to Europe, York was a fixture of the opera stage at Theater Augsburg -- firstly, as Belcore in L’elisir d’amore in 2016; secondly, performing six roles as a member of the 2016-17 soloist ensemble

In addition to his operatic pursuits, York was a 2016 winner of the Fulbright, which he used to study Art Song repertoire at the Munich University of Music.

As a concert artist, York has sung a solo recital at the Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam, performed with the Munich Radio Orchestra, and joined the Heidelberg Philharmonic in Bach's Weihnachtsoratorium. Recently, he appeared with the Jewish Chamber Orchestra Munich in a concert of Mahler songs and performed a Liederabend in the Hamburg Art Museum.

At the Aspen Opera Center in 2016, he performed as Snooks in William Bolcom’s A Wedding. At Central City Opera in 2015, York jumped in to sing Cervantes/Don Quixote in Mitch Leigh’s Man of La Mancha and received the John Moriarty Award for service to the company.

During his graduate studies at Northwestern University, York performed the Count Almaviva and Joseph DeRocher.
"Toute la scène de la mort de Don Giovanni met pleinement en valeur le baryton, Alexander York. Physique de séducteur, sourire carnassier, il maîtrise sans conteste la partie vocale du personnage." [The scene of Don Giovanni's death highlighted the baritone, Alexander York. With the physicality of a seducer and a carnivorous smile, he mastered without question the vocal part of the character.]
