Bio





Miriam Alexandra is of German-Greek ancestry and was born in Heidelberg. She received her vocal training at the music academies in Karlsruhe and Cologne with Christiane Hampe and Klesie Kelly. She then travelled as a Visiting Fellow to Harvard and Cambridge (UK) for further studies. During her period of study, she was a scholarship holder of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation (2005–2010), the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation Live Music Now, the Richard Wagner Society in Karlsruhe and the Brahms Society in Baden-Baden. She won first prizes at the Heinrich Vetter Competition and at the Göttingen Handel Competition.
From 2013 to 2015 she was permanently engaged at the Middle Saxon Theatre, where she could be heard as Susanna (The Marriage of Figaro), Gretel (Hänsel and Gretel), Sophie (The Rosenkavalier) and Christel (The Bird Seller). During the 2015/16 season she sang the lead role of Mathilde in Das Waldmädchen (The Forest Maiden) by Carl Maria von Weber, an opera thought to have been lost. She interpreted the role of Belinda (Dido and Aeneas) at the Cuvilliés Theatre in Munich and on guest tours at theatres in Germany and Swizzerland and made her debut as Blond (The Abduction from the Seraglio) at the Theatre Wilhelmshaven.
Much in demand as a concert singer, she has worked with such conductors as Claus Bantzer, Ruben Gazarian, Raoul Grüneis, Thomas Hengelbrock and Andreas Spering and with such orchestras as the Balthasar-Neumann-Ensemble, the Ensemble Resonanz and the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra. Her repertoire includes both standard works and rarely performed works.
Very close to her heart is the singer and composer Pauline Viardot (1821–1910), to whose Lieder she is deeply committed. She received the degree Doctor of Philosophy with a dissertation on this artist at the Musikhochschule Karlsruhe Music Academy in 2014 and published her debut CD "Deutsche Lieder" by Pauline Viardot in May 2017 in cooperation with Deutschlandradio Kultur with OehmsClassics. An edition of these Lieder will be issued by the publishing house Breitkopf & Härtel in Wiesbaden, Germany.
