Alex Gabriel – Managing Director

As a musician in his own right, and with years of experience combining this art with business, Alex Gabriel is well-equipped to drive decision-making to ensure a prosperous future for Cape Town Opera. Impressed by the can-do attitude of the organisation’s teams, Alex looks forward to putting his own unique skill set to good use: in addition to a Master of Music degree from the University of Cape Town, Alex is also a CFA charterholder. When he’s not occupied by parenting or the piano, Alex devotes time to another lifelong fascination: Formula 1, of which he’s the kind of fan who never misses a Sunday. Among his ambitions for his role is the development clearly defining all that makes Cape Town Opera such a uniquely valuable asset to the city so that even more can join its audience, support its singers, and discover all that the company has to offer.
