ELISABETH HETHERINGTON

SOPRANO

Since moving from Canada to the Netherlands, award-winning soprano Elisabeth Hetherington has quickly established herself as a stand out up-and-coming performer and interpreter of early, contemporary and modern repertoire throughout Europe. Elisabeth has been praised for her "[…] fearless and powerful personality, as well as her flawless technology and breathtaking presentation" (NRC, 2020) and "virtuosic grace, sophisticated dynamics and subtle colours… beautifully lyrical, somewhat fragile timbre..." (Place de l’Opera Magazine, 2020). Managing to effortlessly bridge the gap between early and contemporary music, Hetherington has premiered and recorded numerous works throughout The Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, and Estonia. Her ability to combine music old and new continues to garner acclaim.

Elisabeth Hetherington is an especially passionate advocate for multidisciplinary performance. With modern dance company LeineRoebana, she has developed SOLAS. Drawing on her background as a dancer, SOLAS is a fusion of music and poetry, as well as song and dance in which she demonstrates how well movement and singing live together in her. Hetherington has created operatic roles with companies such as Holland Opera (King Lear 2019, De Vliegende Hollander 2020, Divorce of Figaro 2022), Holland Baroque (Belinda in Dido and Aeneas) and Opera Zuid (Bonsai Gardens 2020).

 

Together with David Mackor, she founded the ensemble Duo Serenissima. Through this collaboration, she has had the opportunity to create programs that have been performed at numerous festivals and concert series worldwide. 

"Canadian soprano Hetherington is truly comfortable in historical singing. Her voice exudes delicacy, refinement, luminosity; it is pristine in the high notes and sometimes almost ethereal in her delivery, achieving a significant impact both in terms of expression and the beauty of her rendition. The rest of the instrumentalists, at a very high level of interpretation, demonstrated a superlative understanding among themselves, but also with the vocal soloist, an impressive discovery that will undoubtedly demand close attention to the career of this accomplished singer." (La Tribuna de Albacete, Jan. 2024)

 

"Hetherington's ability to program daring and demanding recitals and concerts for world renowned ensembles and festivals has garnered her the praise of “showing how a great future in music sounds” (NRC, 2021).
