"...her voice is solid and secure from top to bottom, and a list of superlatives to describe her singing would take some time to exhaust."

American soprano Elisabeth Rosenberg is being recognized as an exciting soprano on the classical scene today. During the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, Ms. Rosenberg was scheduled to debut with the Teatro Municipal de Santiago as Senta in Der fliegende Holländer, Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra singing Strauss's Vier letzte Lieder, and the role of Brünnhilde in a condensed performance of Wagner’s Siegfried/Götterdämmerung with Pittsburgh Festival Opera.
Elisabeth is a recipient of an Encouragement Grant from the New York Wagner Society and was awarded second place in the Mildred Miller Pittsburgh Festival Opera Competition.
In July 2019, Elisabeth made her stage debut with Pittsburgh Festival Opera singing the role of Sieglinde in Die Walküre to great critical acclaim. Previously at Pittsburgh Festival Opera, Ms. Rosenberg performed excerpts from Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde and Wesendonck Lieder as a featured artist with the Mastersinger’s Program lead by world-renowned soprano, Jane Eaglen. In the 2018/2019 season, Ms. Rosenberg debuted with Akron Symphony Orchestra where she sang Brünnhilde’s Immolation from Götterdämmerung.
Previous engagements include the soprano soloist in Verdi’s Requiem with Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and First Lady in Die Zauberflöte with Aspen Opera Theater.
In the summer of 2015, Ms. Rosenberg was a quarter-finalist in the Twenty Third Edition of Plácido Domingo’s Operalia, The World Opera Competition, hosted by the Royal Opera House, London. Elisabeth was a finalist in the Elizabeth Connell Prize for Dramatic Sopranos in Sydney, Australia as well as a semi-finalist in the International Hans Gabor Belvedere Singing Competition, Amsterdam.
