I often feel I was born in the wrong era but then I realize how much I would miss running water, antibiotics, & my cell phone. So I pretend on the opera stage.
Schmopera took a moment to interview Elizabeth recently. Click on this link to go to the article.
“It’s not easy. It’s a very, very tough career. It’s very lonely, you’re travelling a lot. There’s a lot of competition, a lot of nastiness, a lot of rejection. So, you have to be very, very tough.”
The beginning of the new season is upon us & Elizabeth is excited to share with you her upcoming events for 2015-16 season. She opens the season returning to the beautiful Kaufman Theater of Lyric of Opera of Kansas singing the role of Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni. Soon after she will finally have the opportunity to try out her first Verdi Requiem under the baton of Steven Mercurio at Opera Grand Rapids. She debuts at Opera Coeur d’Alene along side her trusty little pup, Schumie, singing one of her favorite roles, Musetta in La boheme. In the new year, we see her again as Violetta in La traviata for both Pensacola Opera & Opera Naples. In Naples she’s happy to be under the baton of Maestro Ramon Tebar once again. Elizabeth thrilled to return to Pacific Symphony for a semi staged version of Turandot where she will sing the beloved role of the slave girl Liu. Her season ends with a debut in Opera Carolina singing a double bill of Pagliacci & the USA premier of Rachmaninoff’s Aleko. There will be several recitals & concert events along the way and on her stops to each city, she hopes to provide a few masterclasses & lectures for opera students in the area. Ticket information for all these events can be seen through here or on her professional Facebook page.
