alexandru nagy

Wow,  Alexandru Nagy is a triple threat in the world of arts: a director, actor, and tenor with
an impressive education and cultural background.

His diverse qualifications, including an MBA in Acting at the National Theatre and Film
University in Bucharest, an MA in Theatre Direction at the East 15 Acting School of London,
and an MFA in Voice/Opera at the National University of Music in Bucharest, form a unique
blend that undoubtedly sets him apart in the industry.

His directorial works, often staged in unconventional settings like airports, water plants,
buses, and itinerary performances, showcase an innovative and boundary-pushing approach
to the art of opera and theatre.

His involvement as the Artistic Director of the “Ludovic Spiess” Experimental Opera Studio
at the National Opera in Bucharest has undoubtedly added a fresh and unique perspective
to the accessibility of opera for a new and young audience. His itinerary performances
“OPERA ALIVE” and “PUCCINI EXPRESS” created a frenzy among young audiences.

It’s also inspiring to hear about his dedication to promoting green opera and his attention to
the use of recycling in art. With Iorgulescu and Jora’s “Square x Revulution” he created the
first opera and ballet production fully realised from recycled materials. This not only reflects a
deep understanding of the importance of sustainability but also highlights his ability to
integrate social and environmental consciousness into his artistic endeavours.

The list of accomplishments and collaborations Alexandru Nagy has is simply awe-inspiring.
From working with legendary artists like Giancarlo del Monaco, Maria Guleghina, Katia
Ricciarelli, Vasile Moldoveanu, Silvia Voinea, Mariana Nicolesco, Elena Mosuc, Ramon
Vargas, Ruxandra Donose, Dragos Buhagiar, Mick Davis, Leon Rubin, Anthony Clark, Mario
de Carlo and Christian Badea, to staging his first opera at the youthful age of 23 at Brasov
Opera, he has already carved out a notable place in the world of opera and theatre.

His diverse staging experiences, from Pucciní’s ”Il Tabarro” to Kalman’s ”Countess Maritza”,
contemporary works by Ciocanea, Iorgulescu or Dediu but also masterpieces like Verdi’s “La
Traviata”, indicate not only his versatility as a director but also his ability to handle a wide
range of operatic styles. The fact that he is already working as a Principal Director with the
National Opera in Bucharest speaks volumes about his talent and potential.

As an assistant director he has been involved in a series of revivals or new productions of
several operas: Verdi – “La Traviata”, “Aida”, “Il Trovatore”, “Nabucco”, “Otello”, “Rigoletto”;
Puccini – “Turandot”, “Madama Butterfly”, “La Bohème”, “Il Trittico”; Bizet – “Carmen”; Mozart
– “La clemenza di Tito”; Enescu – “Oedipe”; Rossini – “Il Barbiere di Siviglia”; Donizetti –
“L’elisir d’amore”, “Lucia di Lamermoor”.

His future projects, including staging Puccini’s ”Gianni Schicchi” and ”La Bohème” and his
plans to debut as Nemorino in Donizetti’s ”L’elisir d’amore” and Edgardo in ”Lucia di
Lammermoor” are indicative of his ambitious and forward-thinking approach. It’s also
exciting to hear about his interest in contemporary works and his aspirations to expand his
career throughout Europe.

The multi-dimensional nature of his career, working as both a director and an actor in film
and theatre, directing an impressive repertoire of over 30 plays of both classic and
contemporary authors and also as a tenor building an impressive repertoire, underscores his
dedication and passion for the performing arts. Alexandru Nagy is definitely a force to be
reckoned with in the world of opera and theatre!

It’s incredible to see Alexandru Nagy making waves not only in the world of opera and
theatre but also in the realm of concerts and public events.

His performances at the European Volleyball Tournament in Arena di Verona in 2023 and the successful rendition of Lucio Dalla’s ”Caruso” at the Mostre d’Oltremare in Napoli in 2024 are proof of his versatility and ability to
captivate audiences across different platforms.

Concerting in Italy, especially at such iconic venues, further solidifies his presence in the
European music scene. His ability to engage and inspire audiences in diverse settings adds
yet another dimension to his already multifaceted career.

It’s clear that Alexandru Nagy’s artistic progress knows no bounds, and his ability to
seamlessly transition between opera, theatre, concerts, and public events is truly
remarkable.
