"Rodrick was, in a word, perfect. Her caramel coated voice had a smoothness yet authoritative manner about it, which never got lost in the texture..."

-Joshua Collier, Boston Music Intelligencer




LA CENA È PRONTA ("Dinner is ready") began two years ago as a live recital series. Wishing to connect with audiences outside of the concert hall, singers Joshua Arky and Alexandra Rodrick and pianist Ines Irawati performed for an intimate group of guests while simultaneously cooking them a multi-course meal. The event was so surprising and exhilarating to audiences, that the LA CENA team reprised the event the following year.


Ever adapting and seeking innovation, LA CENA È PRONTA has recently extended its offerings to an online community of food and music lovers with a video series that features the same essence of culinary musical celebration that made the in-person events so exciting and one-of-a-kind.

A standout performer on the opera stage, American mezzo-soprano Alexandra Rodrick is by turns a fiercely dominating force and a deeply sensitive storyteller.


Lauded by Opera News for her "especially healthy young voice," Ms. Rodrick has distinguished herself as a fearless singing actress with powerful vocal facility.
