Allegra Durante is a young soprano whose sound and spunk make her excellently suited to the soubrette repertoire. Her agile voice has explored a wide range of eras and styles including the beautiful lines of Mozart, the florid passages of the baroque and bel canto, and the soaring melodies of Richard Strauss.
Allegra studies voice with Brooke Collins, and takes classes in opera performance at the Lucy Moses School. Before focusing on opera, she developed her performance skills in classical theatre, musical theatre, dance, and stage combat.
