Biography

Allegra De Vita, a mezzo-soprano from Trumbull, Connecticut, was recently seen as Maddalena in a video streaming of Rigoletto at Tulsa Opera and was slated to sing the title role in Pélleas et Melisande with Maryland Lyric Opera as well as the title role in Rinaldo with The Glimmerglass Festival.

She was also seen as Angelina in La Cenerentola at Dayton Opera, The Page in Salome at The Spoleto Festival, Siebel in Faust at Washington National Opera, the title role in Carmen with the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, Tancredi in Erminia with Opera Lafayette, Agrippina in Fall of Lehman Brothers with Ballet-Opera-Pantomime in Montreal, Olga in Eugene Onegin with Syracuse Opera, and sang Isaura while understudying Tancredi in Tancredi with Opera Philadelphia. Ms. De Vita spent three summers at the Glimmerglass Festival performing the roles of Pippo in La Gazza Ladra, Fulvio in Cato in Utica, and Arsamenes in Xerxes.

As a 2018 graduate from the Washington National Opera’s Cafritz Young Artist Program, Ms. De Vita was seen as Rosina in The Barber of Seville (*Emerging Artist Performance), Tebaldo in Don Carlo, Ruggiero in Alcina (*), and Cherubino in Le Nozze di Figaro (*).

Ms. De Vita was a 2015 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions Grand Finalist and can be heard on the Grammy Award winning CD of “Wozzeck” conducted by Hans Graf with the Houston Symphony. She was a resident artist at the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia, PA. Ms. De Vita holds a master’s degree in voice from Rice studying with Dr. Stephen King, and a BA Magna cum Laude in biology with a neuroscience concentration from Sacred Heart University.
“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."
