Elizabeth Blancke-Biggs is Elektra


Internationally acclaimed dramatic soprano Elizabeth Blancke-Biggs is an unstoppable force of nature. Widely known for her powerful portrayals of opera’s ‘madwomen’, Elizabeth previously took on the immensely demanding role of Elektra at Teatro Comunale di Bologna in 2015, earning rave reviews for her performance:

Elektra could be defined as a "one woman show", and Elizabeth Blancke-Biggs truly succeeds in drawing the spectator to her with a charisma that makes one want her monologues and scenes to never end. Her interpretation is breath-takingly fascinating, based on a declamation and use of text that would make a Shakespearian actor jealous. Her lirico-spinto voice, warm and convincing, fits the role perfectly, and the great professional knows how to keep her sound bright and smooth in the center of her voice, and in the beautiful high register, and then to obtain the maximum dramatic effect to darken the low, and medium low parts without taking away the musicality in this difficult role rich in quasi spoken, whispered, and loud passages, heading almost to screams. (Liricamente).

Elizabeth Blancke-Biggs is an Elektra who is well suited in every way to take on the difficulties of the part: the voice has the proper volume, the color shows a beautiful old style darkness appropriate for the role, the high notes are solid and brilliant, and the character is vividly and intricately drawn in its lucid madness cloaked by a fury that is more interior than exterior. (Teatro)

Elizabeth Blancke-Biggs was superb in the title role. Her Elektra was expressively strong, thanks also to her voice which leaned toward the dark, but was well projected; her performance was sublime, perfectly illustrating the character, knowing how to show her tragic and mad side, and also her passionate and romantic one. (Opera World)

Elizabeth has also had various stints with strong characters like Lady Macbeth and Tosca (both at the Metropolitan Opera), Turandot, and Strauss's other tormented heroine Salome. Edmonton audiences will be treated to this remarkable soprano's undeniable talent in the performance of a lifetime as Elektra. This complex role requires exceptional vocal agility because Elektra never leaves the stage and rarely does she stop singing. Elizabeth Blancke-Biggs is more than up to the challenge, bringing incredible vocals, strong acting instincts, and world stage experience for her Edmonton Opera debut. She will arrest you with her presence.
