Elizabeth Zharoff is currently a Domingo Colburn Stein Young Artist at LA Opera. Already an established international artist, her recent performances include Leïla in The Pearl Fishers with Seattle Opera, Violetta in La Traviata with the English National Opera and the role of Esther in the world premiere of Ricky Ian Gordon’s opera Morning Star. The press has described Ms. Zharoff’s voice as “a powerhouse of sound” whose “glorious high notes defy imagination”, and her performances as “magnetic” and “a delight from start to finish.”
In addition to performing opera, she composes and designs game audio from her home studio. In 2014, her first published game, Roshamboroo, was awarded second place in the Dolby Audio Challenge. Since then, she has created sound for over a dozen games, across multiple platforms. She also composes for film and television and collaborates with other composers. You can find her music in the Black Toast Music library catalogue, and buy her music on iTunes.
Elizabeth holds Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Oberlin Conservatory and the Curtis Institute of Music, as well as a technical certification from the Berklee School of Music.
