Cheers to the end of a fabulous 18/19 Season!

Elise closes out this season with debuts at Austin Opera as Emilia in Otello, Chicago Opera Theater as Joan Clarke in The Life and Death(s) of Alan Turing, Florentine Opera for their 85th Anniversary Gala, and Chattanooga Symphony and Opera for Carmen this season.


Edward Tulane premiere with Minnesota Opera

Elise will make her debut with Minnesota Opera in 2020 singing Pellegrina in Paola Prestini’s new opera Edward Tulane. Featuring Jack Swanson, Zachary James, Zulimar López-Hernández, Daniel Belcher, with Maestro Lidiya Yanakovskaya, and many more amazing artists.

Edward Tulane is a toy rabbit who thinks of himself as quite exceptional. Content in his easy life, his world is upturned when he is separated from his loving family. Based on the best-seller by local author Kate DiCamillo, Edward Tulane takes us on a miraculous journey, from the depths of the deep blue sea to the streets of Memphis. Perfect for the young and young at heart, this elegantly whimsical Minnesota original shows us a true miracle—that if you open your heart, you can find home.
