Lexi Hutton

Soprano / Actress / Comedienne

Described as a 'stage-animal' (Merker), 'electrifying' (Welt) and hailed for her 'powerful soprano' (Musikultur Berlin), her 'exquisite musicality' (Opera Magazine) and her effortless acting and stagecraft, soprano Lexi Hutton grew up in the small Australian country town of Bingara and is based in Europe as a principal ensemble member of the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

“Much of the first act was dominated by Alexandra Hutton, whose extraordinary gifts as a comedic actress turned the angry, petty Lisa into the most vital, plausible and strangely likeable force on stage. […] Whenever she was not on stage, her absence was felt."
- MUNDO CLASICO, February 2019, Lisa LA SONNAMBULA , Deutsche Oper Berlin

Her roles there include Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro), Gretel (Hänsel und Gretel), Zerlina (Don Giovanni), Musetta (La Bohème), Adele (Die Fledermaus), Despina in (Cosi fan tutte), Lisa (La Sonnambula), Tebaldo (Don Carlo), Belinda (Dido and Aeneas), 5th Magd (Elektra), Blumenmädchen (Parsifal), Xenia (Boris Godunov), Olympia/Giulietta/Antonia (Hoffmann), 2nd Niece (Peter Grimes) and Lisette in Rolando Villazon's production of Puccini's La Rondine.

"The works builds to a tender and wistful romantic-comedy conclusion, with pleasing strophic passages and a fine duet for two of the cast’s best singers, soprano Alexandra Hutton and tenor Timothy Oliver"

„Power-hungry, petulant and smoking, at the same time with a clean, bright Coloratura, Alexandra Hutton embodies the innkeeper Lisa”
