Liza Connell, in memoriam

She never threw a tantrum, never courted the media, never did anything but sing and act to the very best of her considerable abilities.

Elizabeth Connell, who died yesterday, was the consummate opera professional, at the highest level. She was the kind of singer you can build a house on. And she never lost her sense of fun.

May she rest in peace.


  • We all feel very sad at IVC ‘s-Hertogenbosch because of Elisabeth Connell passing away yesterday. Personally I have great remembrances of her when she sang Kundry in Amsterdam in the 80ies, where I sang one of the flower maids and the alto solo. She was a wonderful artist and a wonderful person. may she rest in piece.
