Elizabeth also is a sought-after soprano on the concert stage.
Recent concert appearances have included Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis with Sir Mark Elder, Mahler's Symphony No. 8 with Esa-Pekka Salonen, Elgar's Caractacus and Vaughan Williams' A Sea Symphony with Martyn Brabbins (both recorded for Hyperion), and a live performance of Strauss' Vier Letzte Lieder on BBC Radio 3 with Donald Runnicles and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
"a voice of pure operatic joy"
Known for her vivid portrayals of Puccini heroines, and for her full, distinctive voice, Elizabeth has quickly risen through the ranks since making her debut as Mimi / La Boheme less than ten years ago, and established herself internationally as a dramatic and vocal artist of distinction.
Elizabeth stands on the verge of a very exciting 2019/20 season with engagements including the title role in Puccini's Manon Lescaut (her seventh Puccini role to date), the title roles in Verdi's Aida and Luisa Miller, and her debut at the Metropolitan Opera as Bess in Porgy and Bess.
"Elizabeth's rich, lyric instrument produced refined tone at every point in her wide range... a voice it would be hard to match anywhere in terms of beauty and color."(Opera News)
Specialising in the Italian repertoire, Elizabeth's roles include Puccini and Verdi - Madama Butterfly, Magda/La Rondine, Giorgetta/Il Tabarro, Tosca, Suor Angelica; Aida, Luisa Miller, and Amelia/Simon Boccanegra for which Elizabeth was nominated for “Singer of the Year 2013” in OpernWelt). In 2014, she also made her Wagner debut as Elsa/Lohengrin in Germany, about which Opera magazine wrote:
"With well-nigh-perfect diction, she modulated her ever-so-slightly smoky timbre from the dreamy forlorness of the first scenes to an unusually strong confrontational tone. Her voice carried to the furthest nook, even in the pianissimo passages, and - almost alone in the cast - she seemed to have power in reserve during even her most outgoing effusions."
