Praised for her “rich and capacious mezzo soprano” (San Francisco Chronicle), Cuban- American singer Alexandra Urquiola is quickly gaining notoriety on the international stage.

Urquiola returned to the Teatro Real this season, singing Segunda Doncella and covering Néris in their production of Cherubini’s Médée. Immediately after, she made her debut as Mercédès in Staatsoper Stuttgart’s production of Carmen.

Later this season, Alexandra can be seen in the title role of Carmen at Theater Aachen, as well as their production of Il viaggio a Reims as Marchesa Melibea. She will tour Ireland, England, and Switzerland with Irish National Opera’s production of L’Olimpiade as Aristea.

In the 22/23 Season, Urquiola premiered a scenic adaption of Bach’s Johannespassion as the Alt Solistin at Staatsoper Stuttgart. In the same season, she performed as the Küchenjunge (Rusalka), Tisbe (la Cenerentola), and Frau Holle (Holle) also with Staatsoper Stuttgart.

Urquiola made her debut at the Teatro Real in Madrid and the Peralada Festival with the opera Hadrian, performing the role of Plotina. She previously workshopped this role with Rufus Wainwright at the Aspen Music Festival.

In 2019, Urquiola joined the Opernstudio at Staatsoper Stuttgart, where she was seen as Bradamante (Alcina), Dinah (Trouble in Tahiti), Dritte Dame (Die Zauberflöte), L’enfant (L’enfant et les sortilèges/Die verzauberte Welt), Fjodor (Boris Godunov), die Aktivistin (Secondhand Zeit), Annina (La traviata), Emmeline (King Arthur), and Linetta (Die Liebe zu drei Orangen).

In the concert field, her repertoire includes works such as Handel’s Messiah, Elgar’s Sea Pictures, Ted Hearne’s Katrina Ballads, and John Adams’ Grand Pianola Music. Special highlights include her collaboration with the renowned pianist Steven Blier for the world premiere of Clarice Assad's Elementos song cycle at the New York Festival of Song.

She competed in prestigious international competitions such as Belvedere, Concurs Tenor Viñas and Neue Stimmen, among others, always reaching the semifinals.

Alexandra participated in several young artist programs, including the San Francisco Opera Center’s Merola Opera Program, Opera Theatre of St. Louis, and the Aspen Opera Center. She graduated from Northwestern University and received her masters from the Yale School of Music.
