A Note from Joseph "Yossi" Kalichstein, Artistic Director of Fortas
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It is always a treat to see an artist wear different hats, erasing the false demarcation between a soloist, a concert performer, and, yes, an opera star! We are thrilled to have Isabel Leonard as part of our Fortas season, enriching our renovated Terrace Theater with the passion, intensity, and beauty of her especially radiant mezzo-soprano voice.

A Note from Renée Fleming, Artistic Advisor at Large
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Isabel is in demand at opera houses all over the world for her sparkling voice and stage presence. I loved singing with her recently at Carnegie Hall for the 125th anniversary of that legendary hall. Whether seeing her as Cinderella, Rosina, or Cherubino--or on Sesame Street--beauty and glamour are hallmarks of both her singing and her presence: a classical singer for the 21st century!
