Becca Allen

Mezzo-Soprano

About Me

Praised for her warm, versatile voice and dynamic acting skill, Becca Allen is a mezzo-soprano based in Boston, MA.

A Metropolitan Opera Laffont Competition award winner, her recent engagements include Sesto (La clemenza di Tito ) Carmen (Carmen ), the Mezzo-Soprano in Hydrogen Jukebox, Bradamante (Alcina ), Meg March (Little Women ), Ottavia (Il Guioco del Quadriglio), La Zia Principessa (Suor Angelica ), La Ciesca (Gianni Schicchi ), Dryade (Ariadne auf Naxos ) The Narrator/Mysterious Man (Into the Woods ), Hucklebee (The Fantasticks ), among others.

She can next be seen as Cecilia March in the Harrower Summer Opera Workshop's production of Little Women.

Equally passionate in classical performance, musical theatre, and acting, Ms. Allen is as comfortable on a concert stage as she is in a black box theatre. A gold medalist ballroom dancer, she is proficient in all forms of Standard Ballroom, Latin, and Rhythm dance, as well as stage combat.

Ms. Allen has also had the privilege to be included in several premieres of new work and recording projects from such composers as Joan Tower and Roxanne Winslow, as well as her own work recording in Folk and Irish styles. 

A review of her recent performance as a member of The Sextet (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder ), with San Francisco's Lamplighters Music Theatre, called Ms. Allen and her cast "...ever-role-changing, always hysterical" ( Eddy Reynolds, Theatre Eddy's San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Reviews ).

Ms. Allen recieved a Performance Diploma from Boston University and her Master of Music degree from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
