THIS IS A PAST EVENT

Isabel Leonard, mezzo-soprano
Vlad Iftinca, piano

Pre-concert Talk 2:00 PM

From Carnegie Hall and the Metropolitan Opera to the Salzburg Festival and the Vienna State Opera, Isabel Leonard, winner or the prestigious Beverly Sills Award, garners praise for her "fresh, effervescent, and lovely" singing. "She maintained an exquisite poise, leaving the drama to the voice, where it flowered richly in coloratura more expressive than words themselves" (The New York Times).

"Genuine star quality is a rarity on the opera stage – or anywhere – but it is abundantly clear that Isabel Leonard has it in spades" (The Classical Review).
