RESIDENCE OF THE POLISH AMBASSADOR

Alexandra Nowakowski – Coloratura Soprano
George Peachey- Piano

Friday, October 14, 2022 6:30pm

Being Polish, Alexandra feels very personally the enormous challenge that the Polish people have accepted in helping millions of Ukranian refugees, and is honored to perform this Benefit Concert to aid the Ukrainian children now living in Poland. Praised by Opera News for her “impassioned singing” and “silvery voice,” Alexandra Nowakowski returns to The Metropolitan Opera for the 2022/23 season to cover Barbara/Mrs. Latch in The Hours (Puts), Voce dal cielo in “Don Carlo,” and Sophie in “Der Rosenkavalier.” Last season at the Metropolitan Opera she covered Zerbinetta in Strauss’s “Ariadne auf Naxos,” Lucia in Donizetti’s “Lucia di Lammermoor,” and Gilda in Verdi’s “Rigoletto.” Alexandra is a Polish American-born Soprano, alumna of the Academy of Vocal Arts and the Cafritz Young Artists Program of the Washington National Opera. She has won numerous competitions in the US and in Europe, and has sung locally at the Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap, and the Phillips Collection before joining the Metropolitan Opera. She is the recipient of the Beebe Fund fellowship which aided her to record her debut album of Polish music, KRAINA.
