Cuban-American soprano Elizabeth Caballero"brought great warmth and emotion" as Magda in Florida Grand Opera's La Rondine to begin 2012. The current season began last fall when she opened Lyric Opera of Kansas City's new opera house as Liu in their new production of Turandot and "her performance of the piece was stunning". She recently performed “the strongest and most memorable performance of this production as Micaela with her soaring, lyrical soprano and poised, graceful presence” for Central City Opera. She was also “a truly wonderful Violetta” for Madison Opera and had a triumph as Liu in Florida Grand Opera’s season-opening Turandot last fall. "Elizabeth Caballero gave a meltingly effective performance...in the aria Signore, ascolta...her warm, middle range tones and floating high notes made for a moving plea to the prince". Just prior she was Nedda with Kentucky Opera. During the summer she sang recitals in Montevideo after her highly successful recital in Miami in June. She made her house debut at the Metropolitan Opera as Frasquita in their new Carmen this past season.
