Isabel is “beguiling” and “marvelous” as Cherubino at The Met!
Critics are calling Isabel Leonard’s performance as Cherubino in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro “one of the finest trouser-role performances in memory” (New York Classical Review) at The Metropolitan Opera.
“The plush, animated mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard is a beguiling Cherubino…”
Anthony Tommasini – The New York Times
“Finer still was mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard, whose Cherubino is one of the finest trouser-role performances in memory. Her singing is full and clear as a bell, and the way she stands and moves around is completely boyish yet masculine. She’s hilarious . . .”
George Grella – New York Classical Review
