Go behind the scenes as the artists you LOVE join OPERA America President/CEO Marc A. Scorca in intimate conversations, sharing stories from their careers and discussing the field of opera.
Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard, known equally for her "wide range, coloratura agility and striking physical beauty" (Chicago Tribune), has performed internationally in both opera and concert with companies such as Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, Wiener Staatsoper and Opéra national de Paris. In addition to several recitals, she was heard this season in Jennifer Higdon and Gene Scheer's Cold Mountain at Opera Philadelphia, reprising the role she created for the work's world premiere at The Santa Fe Opera. Leonard recently won a Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording for Thomas Adès' The Tempest.
