Specialising in the Italian repertoire, Elizabeth’s roles have centred around the operas of Puccini and Verdi – Madama Butterfly, Magda La RondineGiorgetta Il  Tabarro, Tosca, Suor AngelicaAidaLuisa Miller, and Amelia Simon Boccanegra for which Elizabeth was nominated for “Singer of the Year 2013” in OpernWelt. In 2014, she also made her Wagner debut as Elsa Lohengrin in Germany, about which Opera magazine wrote: 

“With well-nigh-perfect diction, she modulated her ever-so-slightly smoky timbre from the dreamy forlorness of the first scenes to an unusually strong confrontational tone. Her voice carried to the furthest nook, even in the pianissimo passages, and – almost alone in the cast – she seemed to have power in reserve during even her most outgoing effusions.”

Elizabeth is a sought-after soprano on the concert stage. Recent appearances have included Verdi’s Requiem , Britten’s War Requiem, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis with Donald Runnicles (with whom she also gave a live performance of Strauss’ Vier Letzte Lieder on BBC Radio 3 with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra), Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 with Esa-Pekka Salonen, and Elgar’s Caractacus and Vaughan Williams’ A Sea  Symphony with Martyn Brabbins, both recorded for Hyperion.
