Russian-American mezzo-soprano Elizaveta Agladze made her operatic debut as Zia Principessa in Puccini’s Suor Angelica in March 2015 in New York. Later that year, she performed the roles of Dritte Dame and Dritte Knabe in Mozart’s Die Zauberflötein Germany with Lyric Opera Studio Weimar. In 2016, she returned to Weimar as Angelina in Rossini’s La Cenerentola, earning herself praise for “grandiose mastery” by Göttinger Tageblatt. In 2017, she performed the role of Olga in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin with Hudson Opera Theatre and participated in several recitals, including one at the Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C.
In 2018 Elizaveta was seen as The Composer in Richard Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos and as Mère Marie in Poulenc's Dialogues des Carmelites with the IU Opera Theater, as well as won third place in the XLV International Vocal Competition "Dr. Luis Sigall" in Viña del Mar, Chile.
A participant in OperaWorks Advanced Artist Program (2013) and Lyric Opera Studio Weimar (2015, 2016), Agladze earned bachelor’s degrees in music and psychology from Emory University and a master’s degree in organizational sciences from The George Washington University. She is currently entering her third year of graduate studies in vocal performance under the tutelage of Carlos Montané at the Jacobs School of Music.
