“Autumn Allee offers a strong point of view” -Opera News

“Allee’s Elisetta is tall and haughty, with jewel-like tones in her middle range and crisp coloratura” -San Francisco Classical Voice

Autumn creates. Her artistic world is filled with innovative performances, brilliant friends and collaborators, and endless inspiration for new projects.

An active performing soprano, she is slated to perform the role of Clorinda in a collaboration between Pocket Opera and Cinnabar Theater in summer 2020. She will also perform the role with the Mendocino Music Festival. She has performed principal roles with Pocket Opera, Lamplighters Music Theater, Phenix Opera, Opera Theater Unlimited, and others. Favorite roles include Helena (A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Musetta (La Bohème), and May (which she originated in the world premiere of Full Moon Bender). She is a recurring favorite at Jarvis’s Grand Night for Singers concert series.

When not performing, she can be found playing piano, conducting choruses, dancing tango, and/or experimenting in the kitchen. You might also find her singing along with the Beatles while washing dishes, attempting to read Ulysses, or posting weird stuff on her Instagram.

Her fledgling performance series “Experiments in Performance” is an interdisciplinary artistic collaboration experimenting with pushing the boundaries of form and subverting expectations.
