MY BIOGRAPHY

  Alize Francheska, a coloratura soprano “displaying profound imagination and control” (Philadelphia Inquirer), is building a diverse and exciting performance career as a classical soprano with a "superb voice" (Harrogate News), and acclaimed interpreter of new music, supplying "deliciously diva performances" (I CARE IF YOU LISTEN).
 

MY PRESSKIT

  Her recent engagements include the role of Zina in Nico Muhly's Dark Sisters with Opera Fayetteville, Soprano Soloist in Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass and Soprano Soloist in Mozart's Missa Solemnis under the baton of Gregory Geehern of the Princeton Festival, with PMSA, Nicole in Jason Cady's modulated synth-accompanied Candy Corn with Experiments in Opera at the Flea Theatre in NYC, the role of Zina in the world premiere of Meira Warshauer's Elijah's Violin at the Presidio of San Francisco, under the baton of Jonathan Khuner and direction by Yefim Maizel,  George Crumb's Apparition at the Annenberg Center to celebrate the composer's 90th birthday, and several more world premieres. Following several cancellations due to Covid-19, she pivots into the digital era with the role of Zerlina in a virtual production of Don Giovanni, with Subito Concert Opera.

    Alize recently made her debut at Carnegie Hall performing as soprano 1 soloist in Berio's Sinfonia, in Pierrot Lunaire at the Kennedy Center with Curtis 20/21 ensemble in her own original text adaptation, and created the roles of Lila in Jennifer Higdon's Cold Mountain in workshop, as well as Andy 1 in Andy: A Popera, premiering at Opera Philadelphia and reprising at Seattle Symphony's [untitled 3] series. For more information about past performances and awards, please visit Alize's Presskit.

 

   The virtual performance era, sparked by the Covid-19 pandemic, inspired Alter Ego Chamber Opera to convert their production of Mosaic of Modern Opera to an entirely virtual setting. The premiere took place on September 19th, 2020, and featured five brand new opera works by the winners of their Spring call-for-scores competition, included an audience participation element via Zoom, and was entirely filmed, directed, and conceived of by Alter Ego Chamber Opera

   Alize is co-founder, a soprano performer, a director, and a librettist with the Philadelphia-based chamber opera company  Alter Ego Chamber Opera, whose mission is to tell new stories and old stories in new ways, supporting the creative voices of women, POC and other under represented artists in order to create brand new opera theatre "without the ego."  Click this link to find out more about Alize's work as a librettist. 

 

   After rigorous training in the opera program at The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where she earned her Bachelor and Master's Degrees of Music in Opera Performance, Alize was honored to step away and serve for two years through her alma mater as an ArtistYear Fellow (2015-2017), the first National AmeriCorps program for artists to dedicate a year of service to our nation, working to build a music program from the ground-up at South Philadelphia High School, a rough school in urban Philadelphia facing great economic, scholastic, and safety challenges. Find out more about her work building a choral program, and directing and producing two-full length musicals at the school, Dreamgirls and The Wiz, including student testimonials and production footage here
