“…an Aida of enormous dramatic urgency.”

Das Opernmagazin – AIDA debut, 2019

After a thundering 2019/20 season, including three title role debuts – Puccini’s Manon Lescaut, and Verdi’s Aida and Luisa Miller – and her debut at the Metropolitan Opera as Bess in Porgy and Bess, Elizabeth’s 2020/21 season continues with a return to the role Mimi/La Boheme, and her reinvention as a recitalist with an acclaimed debut at London’s Wigmore Hall. Elizabeth’s debut solo album is released in May 2021, and she makes her debut at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg with conductor Alan Gilbert.
