A SINGER'S SUITCASE
Elizabeth speaks with Musical Toronto
"Mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong is an interviewer’s delight. Not only does she have a beautiful voice that brings audiences to their feet, she has the razor-sharp intellect, the analytical mind, and the level-headedness that allow her to bring meaning to everything she does onstage and off, to stay focused on what is important to her, as an artist and a person. Articulate and insightful, serious-minded yet friendly and cordial, my chat with her was a joy."
DeShong returns to Canadian Opera Company for Maometto II
April 29 - May 14, 2016
LOVE AND WAR COLLIDE IN ROSSINI'S EPIC DRAMA.
In his grand bel canto opera Maometto II, Rossini unleashes his full arsenal of vocal fireworks on the historical tale of the great Turkish Sultan, Maometto, and his quest to conquer the Holy Roman Empire.
"As a professional opera singer, I spend the majority of each year away from home. With luggage, camera, and scores in hand, I take off to different parts of the world to make music. With this blog, I hope to create a daily reminder that with travel you always take away more than you arrived with, but the most important of these things can't be put in a suitcase." -Elizabeth
