Get to Know Alexander Gedeon:

Alexander Gedeon is an opera director, songwriter and performer born and based in Los Angeles, committed to developing new audiences for the expanding frontiers of American opera. Alexander made his opera directorial debut with La tragédie de Carmen at San Diego Opera in 2017, hailed as “artistically fascinating” and “visually stunning” by The San Diego Union Tribune, and “the perfect experimental approach to opera” by The Times of San Diego. Last year, Alexander associate directed the LA Philharmonic’s production of John Cage’s Europeras 1 & 2, directed by MacArthur Genius Fellow Yuval Sharon. Other recent credits include the world premiere of David Lang’s anatomy theater, LA Opera (assistant director); The Rake’s Progress, Pacific Opera Project (assistant director / choreographer). As a recording artist, Gedeon collaborated with Grammy-winning producer Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence + the Machine), featuring music on ABC TV and the iTunes Store’s worldwide playlist. Under the pseudonym Yellow Alex, Alexander composed, mixed and produced House of Discipline, receiving nearly one year of airplay on LA’s KCRW. He is a graduate of New York University’s Experimental Theater Wing, and trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.
