Soprano Elizabeth Reeves recently finished her studies at the Wales International Academy of Voice in Cardiﬀ under a renowned faculty led by tenor Dennis O’Neill. She received her Master’s in Performance from the Royal College of Music in London, where she appeared with the RCM International Opera School as Arminda in La finta giardiniera and Hélène in Une éducation manquée. Previously trained as a mezzo-soprano, her other operatic roles have been varied and have included the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro (Mediterranean Opera Studio Festival), the title role in La Cenerentola (London Young Sinfonia/Bedford Park Festival), Dorabella in Così fan tutte, Miss Jessel in The Turn of the Screw (Siena Music Festival), and Constance in Dialogues of the Carmelites (Brevard Music Festival). A keen advocate of new music, she has created a number of new roles including Hannelore in Amy Bryce’s Der Eisenhut and Veronica in Ethan Braun’s Don Cesarino, for which she also wrote the libretto. This summer, she was a semi-finalist in the Elizabeth Connell Prize for Aspiring Dramatic Sopranos and covered the title role in Iolanta for the Russian Opera Workshop in Philadelphia.
