Lauded by Opera News for her "especially healthy young voice," Ms. Rodrick has distinguished herself as a fearless singing actress with powerful vocal facility.
Rodrick's notable experiences on the opera stage include performing Carmen under the baton of Maestro Seiji Ozawa, along with his International Music Academy Orchestra, in Kyoto and Tokyo in both the 2017 and 2019 seasons, debuting the role of Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni with Chautauqua Opera, and later reprising the same role with Baltimore Concert Opera.
This spring, Alexandra makes her house debut at her home company, San Diego Opera, performing Berta and covering Rosina in an innovative drive-in production of Il barbiere di Siviglia.
Rodrick has performed under the auspices of the Atlanta Opera, Baltimore Concert Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, Wolf Trap Opera, OperaDelaware, Aspen Opera Theater, Vero Beach Opera, VEROZA Japan, Opéra Louisiane, and Green Mountain Opera Festival.
She has won awards in multiple international singing competitions including the Hans Gabor Belvedere Singing Competition, the Palm Springs Opera Guild International Vocal Competition, the Mildred Miller International Voice Competition, the Deborah Voigt Vero Beach Opera Foundation Inaugural International Vocal Competition, the Musical Merit Competition of Greater San Diego, and the Metropolitan National Council Auditions.
Rodrick is an alumna of the Boston University Opera Institute, where she received the prestigious Phyllis Curtain Award and cut her teeth on such roles as Carmen, Dorabella, Hermia, and Le Prince Charmant, and Anna in Weill's The Seven Deadly Sins.
Rodrick lives in San Diego with her partner and is directly engaged in expanding and exploring the array of classical music available in the area. She is a co-founder of LA CENA È PRONTA, a project that explores the many ways in which food and music intersect, and has been producing concert and opera in Southern California for nearly a decade.
