Elizabeth Caballero

Soprano

Soprano Elizabeth Caballero’s performance in her signature role, Violetta in La traviata is touted as “animated, communicative and believable, singing with a big, facile, focused sound while making the vocal demands of the role seem easy and natural.” Her dramatically compelling interpretation of Violetta led to recent engagements to perform the role for houses across the country, such as Florentine Opera, Madison Opera, Pacific Symphony, and the Orlando Philharmonic.

…plushtoned, expressive soprano…
 Florencia en el Amazonas “The cast was excellent, starting with the plush­toned, expressive soprano Elizabeth Caballero as Florencia”The New York Times
…fearless onstage…
 La traviata – 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. She also was fearless onstage, playing the final scenes in a pale, disheveled, haggard state that lent reality to the illness that was about to claim her.” – Milwaukee Journal 
…stunningly radiant and crystal-clear…
La bohème  “Caballero’s Mimi was as warm and touching as her voice was stunningly radiant and crystal-clear. She is one of those rare sopranos without a hint of stridency, even at full throttle. The audience loved her, with a few shouts of “Brava” from the audience during the performance and a quantum leap in applause over that bestowed on the other singers.”Queen Anne News 
… a personal triumph for Caballero…
Madama Butterfly – “Giacomo Puccini’s “Madama Butterfly” is fraught with heartache and tragedy, but the most poignant moment of the Lyric Opera’s opening-night performance came not during the opera itself, but at the curtain call. Soprano Elizabeth Caballero, who had just delivered a stunning performance in the title role, sank to her knees in tears as the audience at the Kauffman Theatre rose to its feet. She had never performed the demanding role before and had been nervous about taking it on. But after her inspiring debut as the tragic heroine she may have felt like an enormous weight had been lifted.  Anyway you cut it, this was a personal triumph for Caballero, because after the final curtain her crystalline voice — delicate yet powerful, passionate yet controlled — is what lingers most vividly in the one’s memory..The Kansas City Star 
…soaring, lyrical soprano and poised, graceful presence…
Carmen – Among the strongest and most memorable performances of this production is Elizabeth Caballero in the role of the goodhearted Micaëla. 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 José.” The Denver Post
Soprano Elizabeth Caballero’s performance in her signature role, Violetta in La traviata is touted as “animated, communicative and believable, singing with a big, facile, focused sound while making the vocal demands of the role seem easy and natural.” Her dramatically compelling interpretation of Violetta led to recent engagements to perform the role for houses across the country, such as Florentine Opera, Madison Opera, Pacific Symphony, and the Orlando Philharmonic.

She was engaged to perform the role of Musetta in Puccini’s La bohème for the Metropolitan Opera after grabbing the audience’s attention in the role at New York City Opera when The New York Times hailed Ms. Caballero as “the evening’s most show-stopping performance offering a thrilling balance of pearly tone, exacting technique and brazen physicality.” She subsequently returned to The Met in their new production of Carmen as part of The Metropolitan Opera: Live in HD series.

This season, Ms. Caballero will appear in the title role of Daniel Catán’s Spanish opera Florencia en el Amazonas with New York City Opera, sing the role of Mimì in La bohème with Opera de Costa Rica and Hawaii Opera Theatre, reprise her signature role of Violetta in La traviata with Opera Carolina and la Compañía Lírica Nacional in Costa Rica, perform the role of Mother / The Moon in Before Night Falls with Florida Grand Opera, and, once again, will sing the soprano solo of Verdi’s Requiem with Spokane Symphony. She also will sing the soprano solo in Rachmaninoff’s The Bells and Poulenc Gloria with Crane Chorus and Crane Symphony Orchestra at The Crane School of Music.

Recent engagements include an exciting return to Seattle Opera to sing Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, a performance of Carmina Burana with Florida Orchestra, a chance to sing the title role in Daniel Catán’s Florencia en el Amazonas with Nashville Opera, John Rutter’s Requiem at Carnegie Hall, and a concert appearance as Micaëla in Carmen by Bizet and Previn’s Honey and Rue in returns to the Pacific Symphony. She also performed as Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni at Lyric Opera Kansas City, as Violetta in La Traviata at Opera Naples, as Zemfira/Nedda in Aleko/Pagliacci at Opera Carolina, Liù in Turandot at Pacific Symphony, and as the soprano soloist in Verdi’s Requiem in Opera Grand Rapids. A house favorite at Florida Grand Opera, she dazzled audiences as Contessa Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro, Liù in Turandot, Mimì in La bohème, Micaëla in Carmen, and Magda in La rondine. Other favorite engagements include a return to New York City Opera in Pagliacci and La bohème; Adina in L’elisir d’amore at San Antonio Opera; Micaëla in Carmen and Mimì in La bohème at Central City Opera; a return engagement as Liù in Turandot for Lyric Opera Kansas City, and a reprisal of the role at Austin Lyric Opera.

Her career continues to gain immense momentum since her European début as Magda in Puccini’s operetta La rondine at Teatro Giuseppe Verdi in Trieste, Italy. This led to command performances at international companies including Cio-Cio San in Madama Butterfly at the Staatsoper Berlin, Anne Trulove in The Rake’s Progress with the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra, and the title role in The Merry Widow at Teatro Nacional Santo Domingo.

Ms. Caballero built a reputation as “an intelligently responsive actress” (Opera News) after a string of role débuts throughout the United States: Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni at New York City Opera, Cio-Cio San in Madama Butterfly at Lyric Opera Kansas City, Alice Ford in Falstaff with Virginia Opera, Donna Anna in Don Giovanni at Madison Opera, and a turn as Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro in her company début at Seattle Opera, followed by a triumphant performance as Mimì in La bohème. Her company début at Hawaii Opera Theatre was in a double bill of another signature role, Nedda in Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci and as soprano soloist in the scenic cantata, Carmina Burana by Carl Orff.

Ms. Caballero has impressed in the competition circuit, as well. She was a National Grand Finalist in The Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, a Gerda Lissner Foundation Award Winner, winner of the New York City Opera Diva Award, finalist in the Licia Albanese Puccini Foundation, and one of Miami’s Most Influential People by the Miami New Times. Additionally, in 2013, she was the recipient of the 2013 Frost School of Music Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Miami.
