Alexandra is just about to graduate from the Royal Academy Opera where she studies with Lillian Watson and Jonathan Papp. In 2017, she made her European debut at the Concertgebouw in the world premiere of a work commissioned for the Holland Festival.

This July, Alexandra sings the role of Zerlina Don Giovanni for Clonter Opera and next season she will make her debut with Opera North performing the role of Barbarina Le nozze di Figaro.
