ALEXANDER GEDEON   is a multidisciplinary artist and director of opera, concert-theater and music video born in Los Angeles and based in New York City. His work spans the divide between pop and classical, fusing dreamlike abstraction and a passion for slapstick.

Over the past seven years Alexander has worked at the cutting edge of new American opera and theater alongside multiple Pulitzer Prize, MacArthur Genius Fellow and Grammy award-winning artists. Most recently, his production of Everything Rises at the Brooklyn Academy of Music was celebrated as a New York Times Critic’s Pick. Previous productions have been acclaimed as "provocative, visually stunning" and "a perfect, experimental approach to opera."

Most recently Alexander directed two music videos for Grammy-winning vocalist and Prince protégé Judith Hill, exclusively premiered by Rolling Stone magazine. He also served as creative advisor for the attendant LP Letters from a Black Widow, released on Regime Records.

As a musician and frontman, Alexander led the New York power trio Trick & the Heartstrings, creating a live show London’s New Music Express acclaimed as "a supertight howl of righteous rhythm and blues with jaw-dropping pop twists,” with legendary pop music producer Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence + the Machine). The band released music through 679 Records, a Warner Brothers subsidary in the UK.

Alexander has guest directed at San Francisco Conservatory of Music, New York University and guest lectured at Harvard University. As regular associate to iconic opera director Yuval Sharon, he has been a part of developing new productions of works by John Cage, Richard Wagner and Anna Deavere Smith at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Detroit Opera and the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Alexander graduated summa cum laude from New York University (Experimental Theatre Wing) and trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London.
