“The singers by and large did well, with Isabel Leonard as Dorabella, being the vocal standout. As a girl in love with love (much like the young page, Cherubino, a role she sang at the Met last season), she sang with melting mellow tone.”
Arlene Klotzko, Concertonet, December 2010
“Leonard was a sexy, confident Dorabella with her silken, dark voice and sung a strong “Smanie implacabili” and a perky “E’ amore un ladroncello”.
Ingrid Haas, Operaclick.com, December 2010
“Blending vocal warmth and clarity, Ms. Leonard was a winning Dorabella.”
Anthony Tommasini. The New York Times, November 2010
“Isabel Leonard contributes a charismatic Dorabella that is eloquently sung in pure mezzo tones…”
George Loomis. The Classical Review, November 2010
