Due to undergoing urgent surgery earlier this month, it is with much regret that I must announce my withdrawal from upcoming fall and early winter performances with Oper Frankfurt. The surgical procedure was a success, and I am recovering well, but my doctor has advised me not to perform for the next several months. While I am certainly very disappointed to miss my previously scheduled role debuts over the next few months, I am eagerly looking forward to returning and performing with my Oper Frankfurt colleagues again in the new year.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
"Reiter was terrific, a very vital lyric soprano with stellar pitch and attack wedded to fiercely communicative instincts."
~David Shengold, Opera Magazine
"Elizabeth Reiter is a Pamina for whom Mozart would have written extra arias."
~Lawrence Bommer, Chicago Stage Style
“What a magnificent surprise to hear Elizabeth Reiter sing Amina, the sleepwalking soprano in danger of losing her groom-to-be. Reiter is first-rank, no question. Reiter, a slip of a girl, acted very much a bride, full of enthusiasm she couldn’t contain, later torn by despair. Her bel canto - huge, securely on pitch, playfully unforced - still rings in my ears.”
