Born on the auspicious Feast Day of Bach, Handel and Purcell, it was surely fated that Alexander Cappellazzo would involve himself in music!

Since his first performance in 2017 in Strauss’ Die Fledermaus, Alex has performed roles such as Tamino & Monostatos (Die Zauberflöte), Lensky (Eugene Onegin), Acis (Acis & Galatea), and many more with companies across Canada including: OperOttawa, Opéra Queens, Opera McGill, Opera By Request, Nóżki Opera, the Halifax Summer Opera Festival, and the Ashkenaz Festival.

Opera Canada describes him as “a stunning Tamino, with clarity and richness of voice, natural ease onstage, and a credible portrayal of innocence and determination”, Revue L'Opera lauded “[the confidence of his performance]”, and the National Capital Opera Society admired his "force and strength” as a soloist in Handel's Messiah. 

Alexander is the founder of Apocryphonia and the Diapente Renaissance Vocal Quintet: two Toronto-based groups dedicated to showcasing underperformed repertoire. In only three concerts, highlights include: six North American premieres, four recording premieres, and one of Canada’s only Ralph Vaughan Williams 150th Anniversary events officially sponsored by the Ralph Vaughan Williams Charitable Trust.

He holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Vocal Performance from McGill University, received the 2019 Prix des Donateurs de la Relève Musicale, and is a featured soloist on a Baroque organ CD available on most digital platforms.


When he isn’t involved in musical endeavours, he spends time with his wife hiking outdoors & watching Criterion films indoors, scouring thrift stores for books to fill his shelves, and showering his cat Beatrice with love.
