Isabel Leonard has a busy and exciting fall and winter ahead. On November 9, 10 and 11, in an all-Ravel concert, she sings Concepcion in L’heure espagnole at LA Opera. Next, she appears in Fort Worth to sing a concert on November 16 and afterwards she travels back to San Francisco to sing Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate and the solo in Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 on November 24, 25 and 26, with Michael Tilson Thomas conducting the San Francisco Orchestra.
Her final performance of the year, on December 29, takes her back to the Metropolitan Opera to become Cherubino from Mozart’s Nozze di Figaro, one of her signature roles, for which she’s received fantastic critical acclaim, the New York Times stating “when Richard Eyre’s 2014 production of “Figaro” returned to the stage of the Metropolitan Opera with the wonderful Isabel Leonard again in that role, Cherubino ruled. Ms. Leonard’s lustrous, full-bodied mezzo-soprano and her exquisite comic timing seized attention at every turn.” The performances will go on into 2018, when she sings at the Met on January 4, takes a break to sing two Bernstein recitals at Park Avenue Armory on January 5 and 7 and then continues as Cherubino on January 10, 13 and 19.
