Elizabeth Caballero

Cuban American soprano Elizabeth Caballero has been heard in many theaters throughout North America including the Metropolitan Opera, Seattle Opera, Florida Grand Opera, New York City and many others. Her performance as Musetta in La Boheme at the New York City Opera was praised by the New York Times as “the evening’s most show-stopping performance offering a thrilling balance of pearly tone, exacting technique and brazen physicality.”  In the fall of 2012, she sang her first performances of the title role in Madama Butterfly at the Lyric Opera of Kansas City and it was Cio Cio San that she made her German operatic debut at the Staatsoper Berlin. Other roles in her developing repertoire include Amelia Grimaldi in Simon Boccanegra, Desdemona in Otello, Marguerite in Gounod’s Faust, Margherita in Boito’s Mefistofele and in the title role of Mascagni’s Iris.

Recent upcoming engagements for Caballero include her debut in Santo Domingo in the title role of La Viuda Alegre (The Merry Widow), her first Alice in Falstaff with Virginia Opera, a return to Florentine Opera as Violetta in La Traviata, a debut in Rio de Janeiro with the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra as Anne Trulove in The Rake’s Progress, a debut in Hawaii Opera Theater as the Soprano Solo in Carmina Burana and Nedda in Pagliacci, and a return to Seattle Opera as Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni.
