Soprano Elizabeth Baldwin has been praised as “ferociously talented” by the San Francisco Examiner. Having performed extensively throughout the United States and internationally, she looks forward to her upcoming house and role debut at Municipal de Santiago Opera Nacional de Chile in the title role of Norma. She has recently sung the roles of Sieglinde in Die Walküre with the Miami Music Festival's Wagner Institute, Verdi's Macbeth in the role of Lady Macbeth with both the Opera Company of Middlebury and NYC's Loft Opera as well as her debut with Dallas Opera in their concert entitled Verdi & Co, featuring scenes from Rigoletto, La Traviata and Aïda. Other recent highlights include her return to Chautauqua Opera as Tatiana in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin; the title role of Puccini’s Tosca with Opera San Jose, Kentucky Opera and the Boston Youth Symphony; the title role in Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos with Opera Theater of Pittsburgh, Amelia in Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera with the Boston Youth Symphony, and Ellen Orford in Britten's Peter Grimes with Chautauqua Opera and covering with the San Francisco Symphony.
"Not only was this its first full Verdi opera, but also the performances of the two outstanding leads — the baritone Craig Irvin and the soprano Elizabeth Baldwin — were so strong that perhaps for the first time, the how and where of the event receded into the background... Ms. Baldwin inhabited her role with searing conviction. Her voice is capable of flashes of granitic coldness [and] gained an appealing smokiness and heat as the evening progressed. Her sleepwalking scene was mesmerizingly vulnerable."
New York Times
OPULENT SOUND & SOARING LINE
"Mr. Eaton discovered two singers for the leads – dramatic soprano Elizabeth Baldwin in the title role, and coloratura Elizabeth Fischborn as the comedienne Zerbinetta – either of whom would be an asset to any opera company in the world. Ms. Baldwin, who won first place in last year’s Mildred Miller international competition, has an opulent sound, with solid top notes and a penetrating low, and she sings expressively to boot. She manages Ariadne’s long-breathed phrase about death setting her free, one of the most gorgeous moments in all music, with soaring line and beauty."
Elizabeth Baldwin is known for her "extremely impressive" portrayals of Puccini's titular Tosca, which she sings internationally with "vocal power, stamina, lyricism and musicianship" (Classical Scene Boston).
