Russian mezzo-soprano Alyona Abramova trained at Moscow’s Maimonides State Classical Academy with Nina Fomina, and with Elena Zaremba at the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Centre where she debuted as the Innkeeper in Boris Godunov.
Abramova is currently a member of the Bayerische Staatsoper’s Opernstudio where she has performed a number of smaller roles including in Jenůfa under Tomáš Hanus, Elektra under Simone Young, Rusalka under Andris Nelsons, Prokofiev’s The Fiery Angel in Barrie Kosky’s production, and as both Tytania and Puck in Weber’s Oberon under Ivor Bolton.
As part of the 3rd International Mstislav Rostropovich Festival in Orenburg, Alyona Abramova appeared as Lyubasha in The Tsar’s Bride and has further expanded her repertoire to include such roles as Olga (Eugene Onegin), Maddalena (Rigoletto) and Siebel (Faust).
The current season’s commitments at Bayerische Staatsoper include Mercédès (Carmen) under Karel Mark Chichon, The Nursing Sister (Suor Angelica) under Kirill Petrenko, Annina (La traviata) under Asher Fisch, Alisa (Lucia di Lammermoor) under Antonino Fogliani, and Blumenmädchen in Pierre Audi’s new production of Parsifal for the Munchner Opernfestspiele, again under Kirill Petrenko.
