Elizabeth Futral—whom a recent reviewer described as: “a real looker, with creamy skin and wild black hair”—continues to impress critics and audiences alike with her terrific theatricality and amazing coloratura abilities. “It’s the voice that smites—the rich, sensual coloratura sound ... ” wrote the same reviewer, describing her singing in the recent Lincoln Center premiere of Ricky Ian Gordon’s song cycle, Orpheus and Euridice. “Even if she were standing on her head, instead of just being steered around the stage by a corps of dancers, that voice would kill us.” (Marilyn Stacio, Variety)
