ALEXANDER LEWIS

TENOR

With worldwide operatic engagements and acclaimed performances in musical theatre, Australian tenor Alexander Lewis is forging a unique career as a “cross-over” artist. He performed the role of John Wormley in the world première of Matthew Aucoin’s opera Crossing, inspired by Walt Whitman’s journals. This season’s engagements include performances as the title role in Candide with Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, Tony in West Side Story with Opera Australia as part of its Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour series, and Laca in Jenufa with Santa Fe Opera. He will also perform Danilio in The Merry Widow with State Opera South Australia. Last season’s engagements included reprisals of Count Danilo in The Merry Widow with West Australian Opera and Opera Australia, John Wormley in a remounting of Crossing at Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the title role of The Nose with Opera Australia and the Komische Oper Berlin.
