Born London.

English soprano.

Elizabeth Llewellyn won a scholarship to study singing, but followed a career path in IT.  Turning back to a musical career, she studied at the Royal Northern College of Music and then completed the ENO Opera Works programme in 2009, following which she joined Glyndebourne Festival Opera as a chorus member, creating the role of Ludovina in The Yellow Sofa.  She won the inaugural Voice of Black Opera Competition in 2009, including the Sir Willard White award. She also studied at the National Opera Studio, with support from the Peter Moores Foundation and ENO.

Elizabeth made her ENO debut as Mimì in their revival of La bohème, for which she was named 'best newcomer in opera' in 2010 by the Daily Telegraph.  She has since sung Countess Almaviva and Micaëla (with ENO), Fiordiligi and Countess Almaviva (Holland Park), Governess Turn of the Screw (Arcola Theatre), Donna Elvira (Iford Festival) and Amelia Simon Bocccanegra (ETO).
