A SINGER'S SUITCASE
Elizabeth speaks with Opera News
"Mezzo ELIZABETH DeSHONG has quickly developed a reputation as one of the most intelligent stage performers of her generation. Her approach to singing is admirably direct: “As soon as something makes sense to your mind,” she says, “it immediately makes sense to your voice.”"
DeShong returns to The Metropolitan Opera for Berg's Lulu
November 5 - Dec 3, 2015
Acclaimed artist and director William Kentridge (The Nose) applies his unique theatrical vision to Berg’s notorious femme fatale who shatters lives, including her own. Musically, the masterful score is in the sure hands of Met Music Director James Levine.
"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
