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.
So excited to finally announce that Elizabeth will be returning to New York City Opera this summer singing the title role in Florencia en el Amazonas. This will be the New York premier of this wonderful piece by Daniel Catàn that has been making rounds across the USA for the past 20 years. An original production of Nashville Opera
Conceived by John Hoomes with Barry Steele.

This July, Elizabeth will be making her debut in San Jose, Costa Rica singing the role of Mimi in La bohéme. The productions will take place at the National Theater in late July. Click on the schedule link for further details on this production.
This past April, Elizabeth was part in making some history as Opera Carolina presented the first fully staged production in the USA of Rachmaninov’s first opera, Aleko. While the opera has been done before in concert & while it is a staple repertoire in Russia, it was never done in the USA in a staged production until now. Aleko was paired with Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci & it was praised highly by the public & press.
Of Elizabeth, the Charlotte Observer wrote: “Elizabeth Caballero, however, identified so well with Zemfira that her singing and acting could almost not be told apart. She was just as convincing as Nedda in the “Pagliacci” that followed.”
Here’s a wonderful blog review of the production going into in depth detail of the pieces & artists. Go to review here.
