The Vienna State Opera has called in Alexandra LoBianco to sing Leonore in Fidelio next month, replacing  Anne Schwanewilms, who is sick.

It appears to be Alexandra’s European stage debut.

  • Alexandra LoBianco says:

    It is indeed. And I couldn’t be more thrilled or honored that it’s happening in Vienna.

  • SoCal Dan says:

    Toi, toi, toi, Alexandra!

  • Morgan says:

    Congratulations!! What a monumental goal now achieved!!! Well deserved! Toi Toi Toi!

  • Awilda says:

    Thrilled for you! Well earned and deserved,
    You’ll be spectacular.

  • David Walker says:

    We are so proud of you

  • John Lamb says:

    Having photographed you in your Union Avenue Opera productions, I think I should also photograph you in Vienna. Please send ticket.

  • Tom Sudholt, Radio Arts Foundation of St.Louis (Missouri, U.S.A.) says:

    Based on my seeing and hearing Alexandra (Brunhilde at Union Ave.Opera in St.Louis – Wagner’s Ring in the Dove reduction) the Wiener Staatsoper will be getting an artist that is fully worthy of the house in every way. She is the complete package.

  • Aslanis says:

    I had the wonderful privilege of hearing this great singer as Mimi in Fanciulla at Des Monies Metro Opera in 2014. It is rare that I leave an opera house wanting more, but Ms. LoBianco delivered the goods above and beyond what normal. She was as fresh on the first note as the last and committed to communicating a character and bringing them to life. Don’t walk, RUN to hear this exceptional singer who holds the mantle for leading ladies in opera that leaves you wanting more. So often we say, “where are the singers?” Well, look no further!
