Turandot, Lyric Opera Kansas City

Most notable was Cuban-American soprano Elizabeth Caballero, who sang Liu in sensuously glowing tones, her charged legato shaping the music into cogent paragraphs. Liu’s death scene tore at the heart. For a long stretch in Act III, the performance achieved the kind of unselfconscious emotional directness that has lately been in short supply at the […]

Carmen, Central City Opera

Among the strongest and most memorable performances of tis production is Elizabeth Caballero in the role of the gppd hearted Micaela. Caballero’s soaring, lyrical soprano and poised, graceful presence effectively convey the endearing sweetness of the peasant girl whose heart is loyal to the emotionally feeble Jose.

La Traviata, Madison Opera

I’ve been attending Madison Opera performances for more than 30 years, and I don’t recall a more spontaneous or more enthusiastic response to a soprano than Elizabeth Caballero received following Friday night’s presentation of “La Traviata.”The audience was on its feet almost before the curtain was raised, indeed, almost before the curtain fell following her […]

Turandot, Florida Grand Opera

As the slave girl Liu, the Cuban-American soprano – and clear local favorite – Elizabeth Caballero gave a meltingly effective performance. The role is not one of grand passion but of gentle, self-sacrificing love, and Caballero had the right voice for the part. In the aria Signore, ascolta where she begs Calaf not to risk […]

Recital, Miami, FL

The highlight of the evening was Caballero’s exquisite rendition of Liszt’s Petrarch Sonnets. This work finds Liszt at his most introspective, without much of the flamboyance and superficiality of his pianistic and orchestral scores. Caballero’s vocal radiance launched Pace non trovo into full romantic bloom. In Benedetto sia ‘l giorno, she exuded despair and sorrow, […]

Le nozze di Figaro, Seattle Opera

The part of Susanna was played by Cuban-American soprano Elizabeth Caballero, who is making her company debut with these performances. She was marvelous. She has a very rich and beautiful voice, she is quite lovely, and her acting was superb. She and Nicolas Cavallier, who played Figaro, had a lot of stage chemistry and were […]

Le nozze di Figaro, Florida Grand Opera

Not less expressive was Caballero, who not only has polished her instrument with an extraordinary richness that allows her to sing Mozart and Ziemlinsky, but she has also developed her histrionic skills. Her Countess has not yet forgotten the range and the years of her past as a mischievous Rosina, who can be a “viper” […]

La Traviata, Opera New Jersey

Elizabeth Caballero made an excellent heroine, with a big, rangy, darkly glowing lyric-coloratura instrument capable of precise fioriture and crystalline high D-flats. Not a TV-star-style wraith in today’s already tiresome marketing-driven mode, Caballero made a handsome figure onstage, commanding and vulnerable by turns and at all times believably the erotic center of this hothouse world. […]

La Boheme, Florida Grand Opera

…Elizabeth Caballero, as a touching, resplendently sung Mimi, provided the finest vocalism and fleeting bright moments…has clearly grown into a major talent…makes a pretty and touching seamstress, consistently graceful and credible in her stage movements. She also possesses a glorious soprano voice, gleaming, flexible and evenly produced throughout her range. The Miami Herald – 4/13/08

L’elisir d’amore, San Antonio Opera

The undisputed star of the night was Caballero as Adina. She dominated the stage when she stepped on it, making it easy to understand how she had bewitched her suitors. Her voice…was fluid, round on the high notes and sparkling throughout the register. San Antonio Express- 1/2008
