Alissa Anderson


Hailed for her “deliciously over the top” and “powerful mezzo” by Opera News, Alissa Anderson wields her comic prowess, striking features, and her “powerful vocalism” to great acclaim. Ms. Anderson achieved a considerable success and was celebrated for being “impeccably prepared” and “splendid in every way” when she stepped in as Florence Pike in Santa Fe Opera’s Albert Herring under the baton of Sir Andrew Davis.


The 2019-2020 saw her debut with Opera Philadelphia as Princess Clarissa in The Love for Three Oranges, Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd with the Royal Danish Opera, and a return to Opera Birmingham as Madame de la Haltière in Cendrillon (cancelled). This season and beyond includes Erda in Das Rheingold with Opera Santa Barbara, Dame Quickly in Falstaff with Berkshire Opera, and Marcellina in Le nozze di Figaro with Austin Opera as well as performances with Angers-Nantes Opera, and Opera Philadelphia.
