The acclaimed mezzo-soprano, known for her "radiant, bell-like voice and a captivating sense of drama" (The Washington Post), precedes her turn as Rosina in Washington National Opera's production of The Barber of Seville with an intimate concert. The Grammy-winning, operatic superstar brings her gorgeous voice to a glorious evening of story and song.
Part of Renée Fleming VOICES series.
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!
