Mid Ohio Opera “Un Ballo In Maschera”
As his love interest, Amelia, Elizabeth Perryman was dramatically effective, never more so than in her Act III aria, “Morro, ma prima in grazia,” where the woman’s husband threatens to kill her because he wrongly believes her and Ricardo’s interest in each other has been consummated. Perryman was completely swept up into the drama of the role.
Bronx Opera “Hansel & Gretel”
“In the Bronx Opera’s production of Engelbert Humperdinck’s Hansel & Gretel Elizabeth Perryman’s interpretation of Gertrude, the mother, lived up to every expectation in terms of vocal flair. However, it was her acting ability that truly shined, simultaneously able to portray an aggravated old shrew and a deeply concerned parent.”
“Perryman stunned with her visceral performance as Santuzza in Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana. In Santuzza’s scene with Turridu, the man who abandons her, pregnant, Perryman spent as she sustained the same vocal focus in a gutty dramatic spill; nothing rough, no bathos, but utterly compelling. Her woman grasped the house.”
As Donna Elvira:
“Perryman’s first aria at the opening concert of the competition carried with it the classic dramatic splendor of that great Teutonic soprano Eleanor Steber-a solid core of perfectly focused tone."
