What does it take to WOW the refined world of high Opera? Join us as mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong talks about Opera, song, and life.
Born and raised in northcentral Pennsylvania, opera singer Elizabeth DeShong has been lauded in North America and Europe for her "well-cultivated" and "big, bright and pleasing" voice; EDGE San Francisco said, "“...DeShong sings like a vocal giant. Her lowest notes have body and depth; her midrange is rich and compelling; and her highs are dispensed with a freedom that many a mezzo daily prays for. ”
She has performed with The Metropolitan Opera, English National Opera, Canadian Opera Company, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Radio Symphonie Orchestre Wien, among others, and at the Glyndebourne Festival in England.
DeShong received a master's degree from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, after which she was accepted into the young artist program at the Lyric Opera of Chicago's Ryan Opera Center.
The recipient of numerous awards, Ms. DeShong received the Washington National Opera’s “Artist of the Year Award” in 2010 for her debut performance as the Composer in Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos. Her portrayal of Maffio Orsini in the San Francisco Opera’s Lucrezia Borgia was widely released on DVD.
Further performances of note include Maffio Orsini in Lucrezia Borgia with San Franciso Opera and English National Opera, Angelina in La Cenerentola at the Canadian Opera Company, Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream at Lyric Opera of Chicago, and her sensational Rosina in THE BARBER OF SEVILLE with the Los Angeles Opera.
