Operor av Janacek och Strauss

Under den senare delen av sin karriär hade Elisabeth Söderström speciell framgång i operor av Richard Strauss och Janácek och sjöng titelpartiet i Jenufa och Katja Kabanová och Emilia Marty i Affären Makropulos. I Glyndebourne sjöng hon bl.a.både kompositören och grevinnan i Strauss Capriccio och Christine i Intermezzo.
