"A truly original classical-crossover artist."
In concert after concert, Alexander Kariotis has been wowing audiences of all ages and receiving nothing but standing ovations and amazing reviews. As you are no doubt aware, the popularity of "classical crossover" is skyrocketing, but Alexander Kariotis and the Rock Opera Orchestra redefines the genre.
For the first time, you have a rock and roll singer/songwriter who has been classically trained in Opera by Arrigo Pola (Luciano Pavarotti's voice teacher, Modena, Italy), Gianni Raimondi (La Scala, Italy), Dan Marek (Mannes Conservatory, Metropolitan Opera), John Wustman and Nico Castel (Metropolitan Opera), to name a few.
Alexander has performed internationally as an operatic tenor for many years with performances at Avery Fisher Hall in New York and The Berlin Philharmonic in Berlin, Germany to name a few.
His performances with The Rock Opera Orchestra have been met with wild enthusiasm from audience members 9 to 90 years old. His use of multi-media bridges the gap between opera and pop music and helps make it a great event for the entire family.
Everyone who sees The Rock Opera Orchestra is enthralled with Alexander, his voice, and the music. This is a real classical-crossover performer. There are no gimmicks, just his voice.
