Alicia Alexander, a native of Philadelphia, is a graduate of the The Boston Conservatory, where she received her Bachelor of Music in Piano. Her operatic roles include the title roles in Verdi's La Traviata, Puccini's Madama Butterfly, and, most recently, Lehar's The Merry Widow at the Amato Opera in New York. She has also performed the roles of Marguerite in Faust, Rosalinda in Die Fledermaus, Gilda in Rigoletto, Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni and both Mimi and Musetta in La BohŤme. Ms. Alexander has performed in three American stage premieres: singing the title role in Verdi's little known work Alzira; the role of Genariello in Carlos Gomez' Salvador Rosa; and the role of Maria in Martin Kalmanoff's Empty Bottle.

Ms. Alexander had the privilege of working with one of Bulgariaís foremost conductors, Mikhail Angeloff, during a concert tour there in the summer of 1996, where she sang to critical acclaim. Also at home in musical theatre, Ms. Alexander has been seen at the West End Gate in New York City in a musical revue entitled The 10% Solution and at Lincoln Center in a stage adaptation of Martin Eden.

Ms. Alexanderís performances of Violetta in Verdiís La Traviata and Cio-Cio-San in Pucciniís Madama Butterfly at the Garde Arts Center in New London, CT garnered rave reviews. Ms. Alexander and her husband, Professor Michael Tuts of Columbia University reside in New York City where they enjoy a near-perfect harmony between the Arts and Sciences.
