Elena Sverdiolaite received her Bachelor's degree in her hometown Vilnius at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre. She is currently studying for a Master's degree in opera at the University for Music and Performing Arts of Vienna in the class of Christoph U. Meier and Michael Sturminger. Elena's voice distinguishes itself by its large vocal range, bright metallic quality and even intensity throughout all registers. This allows her to tackle even the most demanding dramatic coloratura soprano roles such as Violetta in "La Traviata", Konstanze in "Die Entführung aus dem Serail" and Queen of the Night in "Die Zauberflöte". Elena is an avid Mozart proponent. In the year 2021/2022 she received the Anny-Felbermayer scholarship and was one of the artists supported by Ildiko Raimondi's "Amicitia" society. Elena's diverse repertoire contains Rodelinda in Händel's "Rodelinda", Donna Anna in Mozart's "Don Giovanni", Elettra in Mozart's "Idomeneo" Musetta in Puccini's "La Bohème", Najade in Strauss's "Ariadne auf Naxos", Pamina in Mozart's "Die Zauberflöte", Lauretta in Puccini's "Gianni Schicchi", among others.
