La Traviata, Florentine Opera

Soprano Elizabeth Caballero delivered a marvelous Violetta, the courtesan, on Friday. She was animated, communicative and believable, singing with a big, facile, focused sound while making the vocal demands of the role seem easy and natural.

La boheme, Seattle Opera

Elizabeth Caballero has literally one of the finest voices I’ve ever heard, crushing the men onstage with a booming, elastic vibrato that dominates McCaw Hall.
