Alexandra Fees

Director and Soprano

Artistic Director of Opera Upper West, Alexandra Fees’ work has been described by The New York Times as “captivating, immersive…almost voyeuristic.” Her most recent production of Tom Cipullo’s GLORY DENIED on a Vietnam aircraft carrier for New York Opera Fest 2017 was described by Operawire as “provocative and appealing.” Her production of #TheCell: La voix humaine/The Telephone, in which two women’s relationships with their cell phones isolate them from their human connections, premiered at New York Opera Fest 2016. Eric Simpson of New York Classical Review raved, “…[the] arc was beautifully crafted and troubling to watch.” #TheCell was featured in Philadelphia for National Opera Week, and was lauded by Operatoonity blog as a “clever and haunting masterwork.” Ms. Fees was the 2015 recipient of the Marin Alsop Entrepreneurial Award. Past directorial work includes a rendering of Le nozze di Figaro as a real-time wedding in which audience members were the guests and a traveling production of Little Red Riding Hood by Seymour Barab.
