Alana Sealy is an operatic soprano, born and raised in Raleigh, NC. As quoted in an CVNC review by Ken Hoover, “Her well-controlled dynamic expressiveness communicates the soul of the character beyond the written notes and cues on the page of the score.”
This season, Alana performed Baba in Menotti's The Medium with the newly formed "Music On Site" in central Kansas and made her straight-play debut with Theatre Raleigh as Sophie in Masterclass. As a member of the Natchez Festival of music over 3 seasons, she performed various roles including Ruth (The Pirates of Penzance), Buttercup (H.M.S Pinafore), and the covers of Suzuki (Madama Butterfly) and Julie LaVerne (Show Boat). Other previous work as a mezzo-soprano includes Mother (The Consul), The Mother (Hansel and Gretel), Katisha (The Mikado), Santuzza (Cavalleria Rusticana), and Mrs. Lovett (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street). Local to Raleigh, she has done 2 seasons with the Savoyards of Durham, performing Lady Sophy (Utopia, Limited) in 2015 and Mad Margaret (Ruddigore) in April of this year.
She holds an M.M. in Vocal Performance from the University of Alabama and a B.A. in Vocal Performance from Case Western Reserve University in collaboration with the Cleveland Institute of Music. She currently studies with previous Metropolitan Opera National Auditions winner Katherine Kaufman Posner.
