Elizabeth Treat is celebrating a triumphant 2023 debut with Bronx Opera, having performed the leading role of Liza Eliott in Kurt Weill's Lady in the Dark in January. Reprising her critically acclaimed Queen of the Night, Elizabeth was also thrilled to debut with Prelude Opera in The Magic Flute last October, under the baton of Christine Pulliam Melamed, and directed by Bronx Opera's Ben Spierman. In this modern adaptation, she also sang the role of First Lady.

Elizabeth celebrated her solo debut at Lincoln Center in May 2019, appearing as a featured guest with the University Glee Club at Alice Tully Hall. Other recent performances in New York City include the role of Fiordiligi in Mozart's beloved Così fan tutte with Amore Opera at the Riverside Theatre, and the title character in Flotow's Martha with Utopia Opera, garnering praise for a "winning" performance, with "attractive trills" and "impressive leaps about the scale.”

Washington Opera Society has featured Elizabeth in many grand galas and full operas staged at embassies and ambassadorial residences in Washington, D.C., including the embassies of France, Indonesia, Poland, Slovenia, and Colombia. Roles include Queen of the Night (Die Zauberflöte), Clorinda (La Cenerentola), Marie (La Fille du Régiment), and a triumphant Washington debut as Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia at the O.A.S. Hall of the Americas, led by Metropolitan Opera conductor Gregory Buchalter.

Opera Theater of Montclair (NJ) showcased Elizabeth's Rosina at a special holiday opera concert in historic Van Vleck House in 2016, following a successful company debut as Konstanze in Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail.

Pop sensation Gotye created a synthesized instrument out of Elizabeth's voice for a 2016 retrospective on electronic music legend Jean-Jacques Perrey, premiered at the National Sawdust in Brooklyn.

Queen of the Night has been a very popular role for Elizabeth, which she has performed with the Light Opera of New Jersey, Regina Opera, Amore Opera, One World Symphony, New York Lyric Opera, and Intermezzo Opera with the Charlemagne Orchestra in Belgium. She has also sung principal roles in several U.S. opera premieres, including Susanna in Mercadante’s I due Figaro, Isabella in Donizetti’s Olivo e Pasquale, and Queen of the Night in Peter von Winter's long-lost sequel to The Magic Flute, Das Labyrinth.

In spring 2013, Elizabeth performed the national anthem at a star-studded groundbreaking ceremony for a new national tennis center in New York City’s Crotona Park. Other concert highlights include soprano soloist in Faure’s Requiem with The Chorale in Central Illinois, a summer musicale with New Jersey’s Pacific Encore Performances, and an opera dinner concert series in collaboration with TasteMunich in Germany.

Elizabeth performed jazz standards and showtunes with the esteemed late Chris Gillespie at Bemelman’s Bar in New York’s famed Carlyle Hotel. A life-long lover of the Great American Songbook, she performed in musicals throughout childhood before discovering opera. Elizabeth holds performance degrees in both piano and voice, with highest honors.
