Elizabeth Roberts - Soprano

A versatile and sensitive artist, Elizabeth is equally at home on the concert platform, the operatic stage and in the intimacy of recitals. She was one of seven singers selected to take part in a week of intensive study with Malcolm  Martineau at Crear creative centre in Scotland in January 2010.  Her oratorio repertoire ranges from the Baroque to the contemporary, while her operatic roles encompass Mozart, Puccini, Britten, Verdi and Massenet.

Working with conductors such as Martyn Brabbins, Paul McCreesh, Leon Botstein, Jiří Bĕlohlávek, Jonathan Willcocks and Wolfgang Seeliger, she has performed in many of the great venues throughout the UK, including the Royal Festival Hall, St. John’s Smith Square, Durham and Truro Cathedrals, Sherborne and Hexham Abbeys, and her reputation is growing throughout Europe, recent performances taking her to Germany, Italy and Spain. In April 2012 she performed Orff’s Carmina Burana in Beijing with the Peking Sinfonietta.
She has also broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and appears on two recordings with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

She was honoured to be soprano soloist at the lighting of the Cauldron in the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

 

“... beautifully sung ...
A lovely, pure, lyric voice”

“... sang Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony with sonorous operatic tone.”

“… conveyed the frailty of the dying Mimì, her lovely voice blending with
the Italianate Rodolfo …”

“… sang with clarity and flexibility …”

“…you sing that last act with such control and beauty…wow!”

"I love the colours in your voice and the dramatic ring, not to mention the technical poise which is great.”
