Alexis Tantau, mezzo-soprano A native of Northern California, Miss Tantau earned a Bachelor's Music from the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music. As a member of the Maryland Opera Studio, Miss Tantau sang the roles of Arsamene in Handel's Serse and both Hermia and Hippolyta in Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Other roles include Mother in Amahl and the Night Visitors, Ottone in Handel’s Agrippina, and Baba the Turk in The Rake’s Progress. In recital, Miss Tantau has premiered numerous songs and song cycles. This past summer, she made her Baltimore debut as the Fairy Queen in Young Victorian Theatre Company's 40th anniversary production of Gilbert and Sullivan's Iolanthe. Miss Tantau is frequently in demand as an interpreter of French repertoire, such as her appearance with Opera du Perigord as Métella in Offenbach’s La Vie Parisienne. In the fall, she ventures to the Langue d’Oc region of France to engage in a year-long study of her ancestral language, Occitan. During her stay, she will be performing Les chants d’Auvergne by Joseph Canteloube throughout the South of France. Miss Tantau is a student of Delores Ziegler.
