The American soprano Elizabeth Reiter joined the ensemble at Oper Frankfurt in 2013/14. She recently enjoyed a triumph here as Asteria in a new production of Tamerlano. The corona shutdown sadly prevented her from repeating the Chosen One / St. Margaret in our La Damoiselle élue / Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher double bill and singing the Goosegirl in a new production of Humperdinck's Königskinder at the 2020 Tirol Summer Festival in Erl. She was one of the artists to appear online in concert as part of our „Opera Frankfurt at Home“ series. This versatile artist has performed many roles during her time in Frankfurt, including Armida (Rinaldo), Humperdinck's Gretel, Valencienne (Die lustige Witwe / The Merry Widow), Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Anne Trulove (The Rake’s Progress), Renee / Alice in Neuwirth's Lost Highway, a Walküre and the title role in Das Schlaue Fuchslein / The Cunning Little Vixen. Elizabeth Reiter has also appeared as a guest at places including the Staatstheater in Kassel, the Oper im Steinbruch St. Margarethen, Opera Memphis, the Opera Company of Philadelphia and the Chicago Opera Theatre. She sang Zerlina (Don Giovanni) under James Levine at Tanglewood Music Center and The Dragonfly (L’enfant et les sortilèges) under Lorin Maazel at the Castleton Festival. She studied at the Manhattan School of Music and Curtis Institute of Music and enjoyed success at the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and the Liederkranz Vocal Competition.
