Ms. De Vita spent three summers at the Glimmerglass Festival performing the roles Pippo in La Gazza Ladra, Fulvio in the American premier of Cato in Utica and Arsamenes in Xerxes.

Ms. De Vita was a 2015 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions Grand Finalist. She was a resident artist at the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia, PA, where she performed the role of Charlotte in Werther and Zerlina in Don Giovanni. She earned her Masters Degree in vocal performance at Rice University studying with Dr. Stephen King, and a at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music and a BA magna cum laude in biology from Sacred Heart University with a neuroscience concentration.
“As Arsemenes, Allegra De Vita offered an impeccable performance. Her complex mezzo, with its fine-spun vibrato, was lovely in itself, but it also consistently conveyed human utterance: when De Vita sang, you could hear Arsemenes speak. She was especially adept in her precisely etched trills and ornaments, each conveying expressive intent while giving shape to the musical line as a whole."
