Turandot, Austin Lyric Opera

The performer who stole the stage was Elizabeth Caballero as Liu. At the conclusion of her first aria of the night the audience spontaneously erupted in applause. Her command of her character and her voice was exceptional and hers was the loudest applause at the conclusion of the evening.

The show’s musical highlight is Elizabeth Caballero’s turn as Liu, the play’s most sympathetic character. Caballero nearly steals the show with a prodigiously beautiful voice, that shimmers with emotion, volume and nuanced shades of color. The crowd positively fawned over her, with an applause several orders of magnitude above the others (a wave of gratitude that topped any I’ve heard at the Long Center, for any concert). It plainly floored the young soprano.
