Russian mezzo-soprano Alyona Abramova was a member of the prestigious Opernstudio of Bayerische Staatsoper during which time she appeared in productions of Jenůfa under Tomáš Hanus, Elektra under Simone Young, Rusalka under Andris Nelsons, Suor Angelica under Kirill Petrenko, La traviata under Asher Fisch and Lucia di Lammermoor under Antonino Fogliani. In the 2018/19 season, Abramova returned to Bayerische Staatsoper in guest performances as Mercédès (Carmen) under Dan Ettinger and as Olga in Krzysztof Warlikowski’s acclaimed staging of Eugene Onegin under Joana Mallwitz.
Abramova closed last season with a widely-praised Glyndebourne Festival debut as Third Nymph (Rusalka) under Robin Ticciati, a role she takes through the current season for her debut at Dutch National Opera under Jakob Hrůša and to Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, again under Ticciati. In addition to her house debut at Staatsoper unter den Linden as Mercédѐs (Carmen), conducted by Daniel Barenboim, Alyona takes to the concert platform in Mozart’s Requiem for both Opéra et Orchestre National de Montpellier and the Kyoto Symphony Orchestra under Magnus Fryklund and Junichi Hirokami respectively. With the ballet of Bayerische Staatsoper, she gives further performances of Rachmaninov’s Anna Karenina in Munich.
Trained at Moscow’s Maimonides State Classical Academy with Nina Fomina, and at the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Centre with Elena Zaremba, Alyona Abramova appeared as Dunyasha in The Tsar’s Bride as part of the 3rd International Mstislav Rostropovich Festival in Orenburg, and has a repertoire which further includes Maddalena (Rigoletto), Lyubasha (The Tsar’s Bride), the Innkeeper (Boris Godunov) and Siebel (Faust).
