Welsh soprano Elen Lloyd Roberts studied for a music degree at Durham University before going on to complete an MA in Vocal Performance at the Royal Academy of Music.
Her operatic roles include Susanna Le nozze di Figaro, Despina Così fan tutte, Zerlina Don Giovanni, Marzelline Fidelio, Galatea Acis and Galatea, and Drusilla L’Incoronazione di Poppea. In 2023, she performed the title role in Handel’s Semele with Eboracum Baroque, and joined the newly formed Utopia Choir under the baton of Teodor Currentzis to perform Mozart’s C Minor Mass and Peter Sellars’ production of Purcell’s The Indian Queen at the Salzburger Festspiele. This spring, she toured Wales with Mid Wales Opera, where she was a Witch and chorus member in their five-star production of Verdi’s Macbeth.
Elen was a finalist in the W. Towyn Roberts Scholarship Prize at the 2018 National Eisteddfod of Wales and has been a finalist in the MOCSA and Dunraven Young Welsh Singer of the Year competitions. She performs regularly as an oratorio soloist, most recently singing Bach’s St John Passion, Handel’s Messiah and Dixit Dominus, Saint-Saëns’ Oratorio de Noël and Elgar’s rarely performed The Apostles.
