Elizabeth Bishop

American mezzo-soprano Elizabeth Bishop has been praised by Opera News for her “gorgeous voice” and is in equal demand for both opera and concert performances across the country. With a “burgundy mezzo-soprano” the Washington Post describes as “a rich well of color and emotion,” audiences and critics alike recognize her as one of this country’s predominant singing actresses.   Elizabeth Bishop’s 2012-13 season engagements include a return to the Metropolitan Opera for its productions of Les Troyens and Das Rheingold, and as Mère Marie in Dialogues des Carmélites; to the roster of Washington National Opera; singing Sieglinde in Act One of Die Walküre and Isolde’s  “Liebestod” from Tristan und Isolde in concert for North Carolina Opera; Azucena in Il trovatore with Utah Opera; and as soloist in Verdi’s Requiem with the Grand Teton Music Festival, under Donald Runnicles. Her 2013-14 engagements currently include singing as mezzo soloist with Richmond Symphony in Berlioz’ La Damnation de Faust.   Recently she returned to the roster of the Metropolitan Opera in Das Rheingold.
